Extremely interesting and informative tour. Our guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable!
Our guide was excellent - knowledgeable, personable, and had a great delivery!
Very impressed with how knowledgeable our guide was.. forget her name but she had great insight and easily answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend!
We were taken back just a bit as the Civil War tour really doesn't take you anywhere specific to view but the lecture and discussion were exceptional. As prescribed prior to the tour, Tim, our guide was above first-rate. It really made for a wonderful tour. Larry the horse was in superb form as well. You can really tell the animals are very well taken care of and are in brilliant shape. Their coats are shiny, their bellies' are full and they seem beyond healthy! We were very satisfied.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept it interesting for the entire hour!
We were told to check in 1/2 hour early and then had to wait 20 extra minutes or longer to leave. The tour was great though!
The tour gave lots of insight on the socioeconomic and political culture of SC and how those were responsible for splitting the nation. I only wish the tour was longer- it was a lot of information for one hour.
Some members of my group felt that there was too much information about the political aspect prior to the war. I found all of it interesting. Also it seemed that not much was said regarding any of the buildings we went by either related to the Civil War of just relative to Charleston. Had we not gone on a walking tour the day before there was much we would have missed. Also, sitting in the rear of the carriage made it difficult for my husband to hear all of what was being said.
