We walked with Amy Tankersly. I believe she said she has done these tours for 17 years and my first though being a teacher was all the information is going to be stale. Was I wrong! She had a unique enthusiasm for Charleston history. She had maps she had made … a 3-D replica of what Charleston looked like as a walled city. She was witty and super knowledgeable. She had an unmatched passion for history and the landscape of Charleston. I learned more through her than I did in high school! Thank you Amy for a great afternoon!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Kerri! Amy puts a lot of energy into her tours and we are so happy that you found it worthwhile. And thank you for the detailed feedback, so helpful! We look forward to the next time.

Bad experience
Jeffrey_C

We booked this tour based on the itinerary you offered. Out of 9 places you listed only 2-3 were covered (very briefly) by the guide. He spent a long time showing us some street vendors doing basket weaving (not in the itinerary) and stopped by way too many homes to give us details (again not in the itinerary). We were disappointed and requested full refund as we waisted two hours. We are loyal Viator customers but this one was a horrible tour.

First of all, we would like to thank you for the kind words you expressed about the tour guide during our phone conversation, namely that he was "knowledgable", "interesting" and "passionate". We do however, regret that the points of interest along the tour did not meet your expectations. In the itinerary descriptions on Viator, it states that the **stops on the tour may vary** but we will look into ways in which we can make this more clear. Your particular tour included several stops in the French Quarter and the residential area South of Broad including the ever popular Battery and of course, Rainbow Row. As I mentioned, we would be happy to offer you a complimentary tour the next time you are in our beautiful city. Please contact us directly to schedule.
