Mary, you were fabulous! Your wonderful stories, insight and historical information made the rest of our stay in Charleston so memorable. Thank you! Jan and Warren Spain, Austin TX
Mary has an amazing knowledge of the city and its buildings as well as the culture. We loved being able to ask any question and get an interesting, informed answer. She's clearly not working off a rote script. And she gave us a great lunch recommendation afterwards, too. Highly recommend!
Very informative and enjoyable.
Could tell that Mary cared about making sure we understood the transition Charleston has gone through over time.
Our tour guide (Mary) showed us the most delightful spots in old Charleston and enlightened us about the history of Charleston. When you are in Charleston, do not miss this tour...it is a must!
Mary Cox is so knowledgeable about Charleston's history! I would take the tour again because I know there is more to learn.
Our tour guide Mary was wonderful and so knowledgable about the area it was great. This tour is well worth the money spent. We went to popular historic places, learned about the architecture, ventured onto side streets to see hidden gardens, and more. I would recommend this tour to everyone!
Mary Coy was very knowledgeable about the area and is very personable. This is Sally. We spent the last two days with Glenn's cousin and wife from Ohio, who have a condo on Franklin Street. We told them about where we went with you and what we learned. They just don't know about the Echo Rock that Tom and Candy described near Waterfront Park. Can't remember where it was exactly. Yesterday, they took us to see the Angel Oak Tree. The word "awesome" should be reserved for that place. Next, we collected seashells at South Folly Beach. At North Folly Beach, we took pictures of Morris Point Lighthouse. We finally found a parking space in Folly City and ate at the Black Magic Cafe. Today, we went to the most wonderful place, MacLeod Plantation. Mary, you should go there. We had a super gal who led our tour group. She is a descendant of the Gllah-Geeshee community. She talked about the enslaved people. This was a cotton plantation. She even sang us songs from Spirituals, talked about her father, and other relatives, plus her grandmother. Glenn bought book called JAMES ISLAND. Hope you can go sometime. After that great tour and walking around the grounds, we came back in town for a wonderful lunch of fish and chips at Giffin's. Next, they drove around We drove across the Ravenal Bridge and walked to Shem Creek and walked on the boardwalk. They drove us around town to see the Park that used to be around a horse race track, we saw the Mother Emmanuel Church, the sword gate place, the South Battery, and several other places. Thursday, we'll have lunch with them at a Grill with a sign about grits painted on the side of the building.
