The tour was more like having beers with a good friend that has really interesting stories. I would recommend this tour to... More

He is so knowledgable about Charleston history and it is obvious that he loves what he does. I do not hesitate to recommend... More

Mike was an excellent guide. Not only was he informative but he was very easy to talk to and took a real interest in each of us. He answered all questions and engaged in constant conversation (except when we were eating or drinking). Tour went on longer than originally stated and he was ok with that. He seemed to enjoy...

We're in Charleston for our honeymoon, and we expected the pub stroll to be fun, but nothing mind blowing. Lo and behold, MINDS BLOWN! Mike was our guide, and he was FABULOUS.
