5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Amy was our tour guide and it was a wonderful 2.5 hour tour of charlestown. She was sure to fill it with history, architecture and suggest restaurants where to get some good southern cooking and seafood. It also helped that we had the perfect weather and lots of sunshine.


3 star rating: Worth doing June 2016

Amy is good tour guide for those interested in houses and courtyards of area. Would have liked more history and fewer references to carriage tours, horses. Responded well to history questions, but no ongoing narrative. Very considerate of participant and #39;s need for shade, bathroom.
