The history and architecture and the explanations of both. Bus was overcrowded and hot. Billed as 15 people or less and there were more than 20. Hard to hear

Very informative, I love the background history into the architecture. Why is it was 15 minutes early back to the bus station. Would’ve been nice to cover the entire 90 minutes

Our driver was very knowledgable and shared the information very well. My disappointment was everything was on the other side of the bus. We saw very little that was being explained. A big minus from me. The stars were given for the narrartion
Great Tour

Bad experience averted
, Aug 2021
Scheduled 2pm tour bus no-showed but the 2:30 driver saved the day by allowing us to jump on and provided museum tkts which were incl w/ 2pm tour. So cheers to 2:30 bus driver and jeers to grayline scheduling for stress and disappointment it caused.

Valarie is a GEM!
, Jul 2021
Valarie is a Gem. Having recently moved to Summerville and trying to learn more about our new "hometown", we found Valarie to be both informative, welcoming and entertaining. We will bring our out of town guests back to experience her tour.
Great Experience

Freeman Family Day Road Trip
, Jul 2020
In Charleston for a day trip with family. Decided to take a tour of the city. We had a great time. The driver/Guide was very informative. Grateful to be on the air conditioned bus. 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 children.
Tour guide, Bonnie was nice and friendly
, Jul 2020
Was just okay, went to tour the city, was in a lot of residential areas more than I would preferred but that’s part of Charleston history.
Historic houses
, Feb 2020
The tour guide provided similar kinds of information on every house. Year built, beautiful doors, great stairs...there were few interesting facts about the owners or the actual stories of the house.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
