My crew and I returned for the hours tour and couldn’t have been more satisfied. A real treat to be able to see the exceptional collection in an enhanced and thorough tour. Freddie remains the consummate host/guide/manager and allowed us to experience this treasure trove of a house in an informative and professional way. Definitely the highlight of our most recent trip to Charleston and a must for historians, decorators or the the plain curious! Thank you again, Sean, Kathy and Tony
