Highly recommend this tour. The walk is not very long. Perfect for all ages. Brian could answer any question on any subject asked. We learned a lot about Charleston in a short amount of time!

Brian Simms has a ton of historical knowledge about every nook and cranny in Charleston. He was a delightful guide and worth every penny. I would not want to try to see something with so much history without an expert to fill in the blanks. His choice of attractions was perfect.

We really enjoyed our tour and tour guide. We learned so much. Our guide was Fin and he was very knowledgeable. He was very interactive and encourages questions. You can tell he loves Charleston. We had a great time. I recommend this tour to anyone.

Brian was friendly, welcoming and engaging. He led us on a 2 hour 15 minute or so tour of historic Charleston buildings, homes, churches, eating establishments, and more. Brian enthusiastically shared plenty of stories and insights to share with us. It felt like we were walking through town with a friend. Great tour! Bring water/drink, camera, walking shoes.

The walking tour of historic Charleston was very informative and super interesting. Finn knew a lot of history and made the 2 hours fly by. Highly recommend Charleston Sole.
