This is a MUST do in Charleston. Damon Fordham is informative, entertaining and just amazing in his presentation of facts and the history of Charleston. So glad we did this as our first walking tour, sets the bar high. Highly recommend this and would walk with him again for sure.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My mom and I really enjoyed learning about history that is not typically covered in the classroom or in other history tours. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Charleston!
