I really enjoyed this walking tour and learning so much about the history of Charleston-it’s so interesting! Our guide Geordie Buxton was so knowledgeable and made the tour super fun too. He was playful, approachable, and I have no idea how he has all those facts in his head! He answered every question with confidence. I would definitely recommend this tour!

This tour was informative and entertaining! It was amazing to learn about Charleston's rich history - the good, bad, and in between - in a way that leaves one reflective and itching for more information! Geordie is a fantastic tour guide with plenty of knowledge, jokes, and care for his group to make the experience exactly what is needed and desired. This is a "must do" tour!

Georgie was knowledgeable, funny, and knew how to draw you in to make the whole tour more immersive. I go on many of these type tours around the world and he, by far, exceeded my expectations. If you want to see Charleston the right way yiu go with Geordie Buxton, a native with heart!

Geordie was the best tour guide!! So funny and personable from the second we saw him. He has so much knowledge and passion for the city of Charleston and it was really great to see parts of the city that I never knew about! Definitely take a tour with him you won’t regret it and you will hear a lot of great cow jokes!

Geordie Preot is passionate about history, he gave backgrounds and history with of the different sites. I really appreciated him not sugarcoating slavery. He took us to the four corners, a federal bldg, a theater and told great stories. He was very patient and waited for me, I was late due to going to the wrong location. Was very open to questions and even had some interesting dialogue

Great way to explore and learn about the history of Charleston. Amy was our tour kind and full of knowledge and fun facts about her city. the only downside... walking in the heat for two hours is not for everyone. So, if you are sensitive to heat, I recommend booking the morning. It is a great deal for the price. The tour took us all the way to the water front and we learnt all about the history of Charleston.
