Great tour leader, I learned a lot and it was a phenomenal way to see and learn about Charleston
Shaun was great to run with. He's very knowledgable and guided us on an interesting and sometimes humorous tour. We covered a lot of ground as well as history on our 3.5mi loop. My friend and I ended up having a private tour so we were able to ask tons of questions and set our own pace. A couple of times it felt fast, but I knew there was a stop coming up shortly for me to catch my breath. :) This tour has a lot of history and is one of my favorite running tours yet. Tip: Bring a water bottle. The heat and humidity can be brutal. I ran with a handheld water bottle and nearly finished it by the end of the run.
The running tour was so much fun... Shaun was knowledgeable and friendly! We learned a lot about the city and had fun while doing so. Highly recommend!
Awesome way to see the city! Our guide was wonderful!
Tour guide very knowledgeable. I was very concerned about the pace, since I am a slower runner, but I never felt like I was holding the others back. Tour guide was very accommodating.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and pleasant. We had a wonderful time and will wholeheartedly recommend the running tour for our friends who may visit Charleston in the future. Thanks for making our intro to the Holy City so memorable.
It was fun, convenient, great guide! My only feedback would be to put more on your Facebook page. It hasn't had any posts since 2015 so it made me question if you were still in business.
It was a perfect combination of history & running! Sean was great!
I booked this tour for my sister's bachelorette party and it was awesome! My sister is a big runner, but most of the girls on the trip are not into running and everyone still had a great time. Our guide ran at a pace that everyone could keep up with and stopped frequently to point out destinations along the way. He provided a lot of interesting history about Charleston, but also added funny/quirky side stories which kept the information fresh and not too much like a history lesson. The 9 am start time was a bit rough (even starting an hour later would have helped), but definitely worth it. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Charleston.
I had a great experience on the tour - the pace was comfortable across a variety of runners, the stops were well-timed, and the stories were interesting. Thanks for a fun intro to Charleston, what a great way to see the city!
