Exploring Charleston through storytelling

Even in the rain, it was an excellent way to see Charleston highlights. Evans was a fabulous and very knowledgeable guide. His stories made history stick, e. g., I’ll always remember who Robert Smalls is.

Dennis is knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. The tours are so much better than doing it alone. Historic Charleston is for Civil and Revolutionary War buffs and gives an insight into the many struggles facing our country then and now.
