Charleston in a nutshell

Our first time in Charleston and we were looking for an overview of the city. Jeff was perfect for us. He called a few hours ahead to let us know he’d be picking us up at our hotel and was waiting outside the lobby when we arrived 10 minutes early. He is very knowledgeable and professional in every way. A perfect find for us and we heartily recommend his service.

We enjoyed this tour tremendously. Jeff offered to pick us up at our rental and drop us at restaurant, very sweet of him. Jeff was so knowledgeable! He knew so much and was able to answer all questions. Luckily we book this trip at the time we did because there was a slight rain and we were warm and dry in his suv. Loved seeing all the different architecture and hearing the history of Charles Town.

Jeff's deep knowledge of Charleston history, architecture, and culture enabled us to not only to have a great tour, but to better enjoy the rest of our visit to Charleston. He can stay broad or dive deep into the Charleston experience to match the needs of any visitor. Well worth the price for a dedicated guide and a high-quality experience.
