Loved the historical information. Guide did a great job of blending local sites and focal points and providing the broader historical context to give us deeper understanding of the city.

A very enjoyable and informative way to spend the afternoon in Charleston. Thank you, Dennis, for a great introduction to your hometown.

Kay was a remarkable guide, and a bargain at $25/person. Carriage tours point down narrow passages that we could investigate up close, right down to the slave children's hand prints in the early bricks. If you have ANY INTEREST in the area history, spring for a 2 hr walking tour.

Portions of the tour when we went inside a few landmarks. We’ll try to remember some of the many facts related to us by Dennis.
