Highlight of my vacation
Avian_N

I decided late, the previous night, that since my friends on our Charleston trip would be sleeping in, that I would go solo on this tour. It was a wonderful decision. Not only was the tour guide (and, other attendees) super welcoming, but the history was ridiculously fun to learn. The guide even made time for a water break — as some of us needed refreshment. I can not recommend this tour enough. I also might add that it’s not solely history from a female perspective. I feel like my husband would have also enjoyed the tour quite a bit. All and all — this tour was one of the highlights of my Charleston trip.

This was fantastic. I learned things I had never heard about. Larry has such a great personality. We are still talking about everything we learned 3 days later. You will be walking and standing for 2 hours ( flat service) wear comfy shoes, bring water and get ready for a good lesson. This guide was so enthusiastic and entertaining and considerate. He has a stop to get water and one to use the restroom. He positions you in the shade when he can. Worth every minute.

Larry was one of the most informative, passionate, & highly entertaining tour guides we have ever had! You have to take this tour! He makes the buildings & streets come alive & you are transported back to a different time! He kept my 10 year old hanging on his ever word. We loved it!
