Very professional. Ms.Wendy was fun, passionate about history, full of amazing stories and little historical details. She inspired my 13 year old one to start a research on the Grimke sisters. We are excited for our future tours.

Too many stories…
Wendi_S
, Oct 2021
While we appreciated that our guide was a local and had interesting history, some of her stories were very long and too detailed. Our group size was 20 and that was too many people to keep together and have everyone able to hear.
