Very informative, highly recommend. The guide was very knowledgeable, had a good time with Deanna. We got the gold tour and it took us on a very long tour of everything Charleston has to offer. Luckily we went early in the morning and it was a private tour but without the price.

Dave was extremely informative and really knew his stuff about downtown historic Charleston! Would definitely do this again to get a different route but hope for the same person and the same horse 😁
