Roy was our guide. He is phenomenal. Very personable and very professional. The ride around Charleston was great. Fort Sumter was awesome - even though it was pretty chilly !

Took the historic tour and then headed to the water for a boat ride to Ft. Sumter. All went well. We loved it.

Having never been to the area, we wanted a snapshot view of the city along with historical anecdotes to bring it to life. Our tour guide did just that navigating the streets and traffic with ease. The trip to Ft. Sumpter was also full of history. Our favorite part was the talk given by the Park Ranger who really brought the times to life. After that, wandering around and looking, reading the blurbs, etc. had more meaning.
