Excellent tour with amazing historical details - I had no idea of the role Charleston and it's city fathers played in the years leading up to the Civil War. My middle school and high school-aged daughters were riveted!

Our guide was Fabio who was full of great facts and comedy, was spectacular! The tour took us all around Charleston and we barely had to walk. We had numerous chances to stop and take pictures. My horse was the beautiful Dakota, who was an absolute sweetheart. Highly recommended!
