Great and sweeping tour to historic Charleston!

This tour was so interesting and insightful!! Dennis was such a great guide as he took us around some of the highlights of downtown Charleston. I appreciated how he took the time to answer our questions and did his best to inject social history and context into every location we stopped at. It started raining midway during the tour, and Dennis was nice enough to spare the group a few extra umbrellas as we continued. Highly recommend this tour as a great start to your Charleston experience!!
