I am not one to write reviews, but this tour was the highlight of our trip to Charleston. Although we visit the city monthly, we finally learned the stories behind some of our favorite spots. Our guide was absolutely incredible -- theatrical, excited, and so knowledgeable about the city. Not only did we learn the facts, but also the fun tidbits. We did quite a bit of research before choosing a history tour, and we could not have been happier with our selection. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the city and its history.

We took a walking tour on a Tuesday morning. Our guide, Palmer, was fantastic! She was exceptionally knowledgeable and was able to tailor the tour to our group’s needs while sticking to a basic structure that still hit all the important stops along the way. She engaged every guest and did a masterful job keeping our teenage son interested throughout the tour. Our group was way smaller and much more intimate than most of the other tour groups we passed. Definitely a highlight of our vacation in Charleston!

A fantastic walking tour that was guided by Bill, one of the co-owners of the company. He was great, knows a ton of people in the city, has a wide variety of knowledge about the history (political, architecture, etc.) and was just a pleasure. He was not afraid to talk about the tough topics concerning the city (the many impacts that slavery had for instance) and will leave you talking about him and the tour well after it is over. Since we happened to have a smaller group the day we went, he even asked ahead of time if there were particular topics we wanted to focus on.
Take this tour before you even consider any others in the city.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Palmer! She brought Charleston history to life for us -- interesting, fun, well-paced, engaging. We are very glad that we selected Oyster Point Historic Walking Tours. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide, Palmer, one of the two owners of the company, was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable, truly interested in Charleston’s history, and packed a lot into a two hour tour. The focus is on the French Quarter and the Battery areas and we saw a lot of interesting buildings and places along the way while Palmer filled us in on the many facts that make Charleston unique. We were lucky there were only two other couples on our tour. She also offered tips on other things to see, places to eat...Highly recommend.
