Our tour guide Cathy provided a very insightful overview and history of the city of Charleston. My wife and I were first time visitors to the city, and in addition to experiencing a nice variety of very tasty foods on the tour, we learned a LOT about the area. Cathy is very good at what she does...extremely enjoyable tour!

We took a 2-hour stroll tour, which was very well directed and informatively presented by Beth Briggs, our guide. The tour is a great way to see and understand the history of the city and our small group enjoyed Beth's presentation immensely. Certainly recommended for a first-time visitor to Charleston.

We took the Ghosts and Graveyards tour with Carol as our guide, and it was fabulous! We didn't see any ghosts, alas, but Carol made up for it with stories and pictures and her incredible knowledge of all things Charleston! We're definitely taking another tour with Bulldog next time we're in the Holy City! Thanks so much!

We took the graveyard tour our last night in Charleston! Our guide was Carol, and she was excellent and took so much time to tell us history and stories of some of the ghosts of Charleston. She encouraged us to take many, many pictures to see if we could see any paranormal activity. Some did! She also shared pictures others... More

We recently participated in the Sunday morning culinary walking tour of Charleston and were totally pleased. The tour company was very well organized. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, easy to hear, friendly... she related the history of Charleston through its food. There was not too much walking, and all level ground. We had a variety of foods at 4 stops,... More

We took Bulldog's Haunted Jail tour and were not disappointed. Eric, our guide, was phenomenal. The place is very spooky and you can understand why it is haunted when you listen to the tales.

Our guide Kate was excellent. My family was new to kayaking and Kate was very patient with us. She is very knowledgeable with the marine life and is fun to be with. I definitely recommend this tour.

We enjoyed that walking tour in Charleston a lot. It was interesting to learning who lived in which house and how the buildings were connected with the history of the City. If I could make a wish, I'd like to here little lass about the Story of houses and more about the daily life of the charlestoners, also today.
