The guide Capt Brian was terrific. A wonderful combination of history and a chance to take in the architecture. The theater stop was great as well as the speakeasy and rainbow row.

Adam is very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. We’ve done several tours of Charleston and have gotten to where we hear the same things over and over but Adam told us things we’d never heard before. And, you get to go to two different bars!

Best Historical Guide We've Ever Had

, Mar 2022
I cannot recommend Bryan and Charleston Historic Tours enough! There was no question that Bryan couldn't answer. He did a great job of not only providing trivia about Charleston, but also explaining the trivia in terms of SC, US, and world history. We take historical tours in every city to which we travel, and this was the best we've ever done!
