Michael was great. His depth of knowledge of Charleston is encyclopedic. After 2 1/2 hours of his tour, we still wanted more. Highly recommend this tour.

Thank you for the nice review, Tim. I try to study as much as I can about every aspect that makes Charleston interesting - history, architecture, plants and trees, iron work, etc - so that I can answer any question about the city. Michael Trouche
