My sister, dad and I did this tour. Bill is an excellent tour guide. He has so much knowledge about the Charleston area. The day we went on the tour it was really pretty chilly, but Bill was so entertaining and kept us all very interested in what he had to say that it didn't even seem like 2 hours in the cold. Well worth the money!

Highly recommend if you are considering a walking tour of Charleston! Our guide was very informative and engaging. We learned a lot about Charleston’s history that we would never have known just walking around the city on our own. The group was also small enough so that everyone could see and hear. Great tour!

This tour was a great way to learn about Charleston and Bill Stanton was the perfect guide. So many great stories and secret spots. Best value for your money.

First time in Charleston and this tour showed you areas you probably wouldn't have know were there. We arrived the day before and walked around the shopping area and had no idea what was behind and between the blocks of King, Meeting and East Bay. Went in July so it was hot. Recommend the 9:30am tour. Tour guide Jim was great!

Our guide was amazing and really knew the history behind the alleyways. I would certainly recommend this tour to family and friends that will visit Charleston.

One of the best walking tours I've ever been on! You won't find a more knowledgeable or engaging tour guide than Evans Byrd. His tour lets you see Charleston in a whole different light. Evans gives you an insight into Charleston history like I've never experienced before for here or anywhere else. Also if you like admiring the gorgeous foliage of Charleston, Evans is your man. I don't think there is a plant he doesn't know. In the future, I am recommending this tour to everyone as long as Evans is the tour guide. Thanks for a great day in such a wonderful city!

Evans ran our tour and was quite the character. It was nice walking around the neighborhoods we went through and learning about some of the people and their stories as they relate to Charleston's history. Evans is also VERY knowledgeable about the flora in Charleston which as a gardener I enjoyed.

Really enjoyed our tour with Bill. As a former history teacher, he provided wonderful and interesting historical perspectives with some light hearted stories. We would recommend this tour because we would not have toured the places we saw just walking about on our own.

A very pleasant surprise and a must goto tour. Fun walk that takes you to places you would never see on the regular tour. Guide was great and very informative. The stories and history he relayed to us was fascinating. I would do this tour again.
