Excellent tour and guide. Jordy was very knowledgeable about Charleston. As well as historic buildings, streets and laneways, he described the history of the people of Charleston. He included the history of slavery and connection to current events. Jordy was very approachable and adapted to the needs of the group. Note: take his advice on local restaurants; we did and we were not disappointed!

Great tour. My 12 year old and I really enjoyed it. It was a 9:30 a.m. tour so the streets weren’t crowded with people, which made for a better experience. Also meant it was just us and our guide. So it was a more personal tour and better discussions. We discussed local history, architecture, literature, and just fun random stuff along the way. Geordie was great.

Charlie, thank you for joining the early tour with your daughter. Hope you two can come explore the city again soon!

Geordie was a very personable, knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor. He made everyone feel comfortable, didn't rush and made the overall experience very enjoyable. We don't live far from Charleston and come often. This was by far the best tour we've taken.

We so enjoyed Geordie’s tour! Geordie is incredibly bright and very personable. He is happy to take questions, and he always had answers for us. The best things about the tour were his stories, which really made the history come alive, his personal recommendations on museums (advice we took!), and the smaller size of the group. We were all able to hear and ask questions, which was a benefit to all!
