Charlotte: Beauty, Charm, and History
, Oct 2021
Our tour guide was a Charlotte native and his pride and knowledge of his hometown was evident. I liked the way he incorporated the old history, the recent history (approximately since 1975), and what is happening in Charlotte today. It helped us understand the story of the changes Charlotte is undergoing. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to answer ever question about this beautiful city. We learned so much!

Our guide, Sandy, wanted everyone to have a good experience and was very accommodating. The tour gave an excellent overview and was a great start to our time in Charlotte. We got the big picture and knew where we could explore in more detail later. The golf cart on a beautiful day was fun. Sandy was also a good driver and the trip felt quite safe.
