TOUR IS BEST KEPT SECRET IN CHARLESTON!
I recently purchased your e-book for Charleston. My sister, daughter and I used the e-book for a tour of Charleston. This may be the best kept secret around!! WONDERFUL TOUR!!! Was planning on spending maybe 4 hours, wound up spending about 7 hours. Only taking time out for lunch at Brents and to tour the Catholic church. LOVED IT!!!!

WELL WRITTEN, CONCISE AND INFORMATIVE
“Thank you for providing a fantastic reference and book for our trip to Charleston! We only had time walk the first half of the tour due to time constraints, but found it to be very informative, well written and concise. We’ll be returning when our Son graduates from the Citadel in a few months and plan on resuming the tour where we left off.”
