Charleston is a beautiful city and our walking tour did justice to the location. Our guide knew all the right places to visit and pointed out many wonderful things.

Evans was a fantastic tour guide. His relaxed attitude and wealth of knowledge of the city paired well as we strolled through the historic District. I especially loved the restaurant he recommended for lunch (Poogans porch) and making sure to point out great photo ops. Thanks!!

Amy was our tour guide and she did such a great job! She told us the very interesting history and stories about the people and events that have shaped Charleston and make it the wonderful city it is today. We loved seeing the beautiful homes and gardens. We also enjoyed her amusing stories about Charleston. Ive been living in South Carolina many years and have been to Charleston many times. I know so much more now and I would definitely take another tour with Amy.

Amy was our tour guide. WOW, she was spectacular. This tour was beyond my expectations. Just the right amount of history, local life and humor to keep you interested.

Tour guide was very informed of the history of Charleston. Stopped to take many photos along the way. Interesting - only downside was our carriage tour covered some of the same route.

A comprehensive walking tour of the historic district. As a native of Charleston, Evans Byrd was extremely knowledgeable about cultural and historical aspects of the city, including many lesser known facts, like the story of Robert Smalls. This was an excellent tour.

Our tour was excellent! The tour guide, Evans, fed us interesting and detailed Charleston history and architecture information. The pace was easy, and there was time to take photos and ask a lot of questions. Evans also knew flowers and trees, especially camellias which were in stunning, showy bloom. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice experience. Evans was our tour guide. He was very informed about the city of Charleston and its history. Highly recommend this tour and ask for Evans as your tour guide if you plan to go. He is a native of Charleston and seemed to take pride in introducing the city and its history to the tour group.
