This was my first visit to Charleston. I was on a cruise and timing was everything. My hour and a half tour provided an excellent introduction to this charming city. Our guide was very knowledgeable. His pride in all that he showed us was evident. Our bus was clean, modern, comfortable and with great visibility. The audio was clear with perfect volume. Future cruise stops will include a Viator plan.
