  • Emily

Had a delightful tour of historic Charleston with Anne on a beautiful day. She personalized the tour a few family stories - as her family has lived in the city for hundreds of years. (She is a direct descendent of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.) we got an overview of the city’s history relating to wars, religion, people and architecture. And ended with a glass of lemonade in her lovely garden. She was very warm and welcoming. Overall a great experience. I highly recommend the tour!
