Geordie is truly Charleston's best, most-informed tour guide. This was the third tour that I have done with him, and it certainly won't be the last! Do yourself a favor and book the French Quarter Walk with Geordie on your next visit to Charleston.

Not exactly sure how I stumbled across this little gem of a tour, but so glad I did! My husband and I were the only ones on the morning tour, and in addition to his vast knowledge of the history of this city, Geordie went out of his way to personalize the walk, even rearranging

Thank you, Alabama friends, for joining the French Quarter Walk on a quiet Wednesday morning. It was a pleasure guiding you through the Holy City's most historic district and having the inside of the Dock Street Theater and Circular Congregational Churchyard all to ourselves!
