Very in depth tour. Knowledge and history of area was outstanding! Highly recommended.
WOW!! Mr Franklin was so knowledgeable and very well versed on the history of Charleston!! I am so glad I chose his tour. We take a tour of every city we visit and he was hands down the best. He was able to provide of with stories of historic sites, accurate African-American history and the history of surrounding plantations. I would take his tour 10 more times if we were still in the city. His tour was the highlight of our trip!!
