Brian gave us a great tour of downtown Charleston. He covered alot of the history of the city, from the founding to the Revolutionary War to the Civil War. He also talked alot about the architecture and a number of the more famous buildings in town. Brian was able to just start and stop from our Inn, and also gave us ideas on places to eat and other things to do during our stay. We appreciated his knowledge and helpfulness that he shared with us.

Brian really knows his stuff! We had him all to ourselves for an entire day and he wowed us at every turn. He, of course, knew all the "regular" historical, cultural, local stuff, but he also share lots of interesting, less known tidbits which was fun. We are really looking forward to our next adventures with Brian.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I would say you all were one of my favorite groups. Thank you for allowing me to show you around. Please contact me next time you are in town!

Booked the night before and was promptly responded to by Brian. What an expert and so flexible. Would consider booking him before other tours offered in the city. He will accommodate anything you would like to do. I will call Brian on my next visit to Charleston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Jablonski, I had a great time! I am glad I was able to do the tour on the short notice. Please come back again! Brian S.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Becnel, I am so sorry we did not touch on this as you would have liked. I wish you would have made this known. I have plenty of information concerning this topic. When we are on a private tour for a few hours, I expect to have questions concerning my guests interests. There is plenty I can talk about but I need some guidance. Brian S.

Brian knows the history of every house in old Charleston. He has interesting stories about each and takes you places where others aren't. We saw glimpses of beautiful gardens and learned who built what and who modified what and who lived and died in all these places. He was totally engaging and enjoyable to be with. Highly recommend Brian.

Brian was wonderful. He asked for our preferences before beginning the tour so that we could concentrate on our personal interests. Surprisingly, we learned a tremendous amount of our country's history from Brian. We all had history in school, we have read a lot on our own and yet he was a wealth of fascinating information. Brian is a wonderful, and incredibly knowledgeable guide. It was a pleasure to spend time with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. & Mrs. Kirschner, I had an exceptional time with you! I enjoyed our in depth conversations and hope you return to Charleston in the future. Please contact me when you do return!

Brian is a true historian! In the 4+ hours we spent with him, we learned so much about Charleston, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War - and now we need to go back to learn more! He was a knowledgable and gracious tour guide, and we would definitely recommend him. Five stars!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great time with you two! I am glad you enjoyed your time in Charleston. There is still plenty more to see!

Brian was great. He is a wealth of knowledge about Charleston and U.S. History and how they are woven together through history politics and culture. He was sensitive to our needs and flexible with changing the itinerary when we wanted to include more sites. He also was helpful with restaurants and planning other sites to see. Just wished we had planned more with him. Would recommend him highly. Thanks Brian for helping to make Richard and I have a great time in Charleston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to have the two of you on my tour! I am glad we could sit down after the tour and talk as well. Thank you so much for your comments and please come back to Charleston!

Brian was terrific. He was right on time (which we weren't!!) and asked immediately what was important to us, tailoring the tour to what would work best for us. His knowledge was very impressive and it was clear that he studies continuously to make sure he is accurate. His stories about the history of Charleston was fascinating and totally entertaining--the four of us thoroughly enjoyed our tour and could not recommend him more highly!

Brian was both highly knowledgeable and very professional. During our three days with him we were able to adjust the original itinerary based upon a pace that was comfortable for us and maximized our ability to see our "must see's". He also was very accommodating. We would highly recommend him and will look forward to him guiding us again. Bill and Gretchen Northrup

Brian accepted a late night booking for a morning tour. He was at the meeting place early and met us with a great smile. His enthusiasm for history and Charleston was equalled by his love for people. He gave us an all day tour that was spectacular. His knowledge of US history, dates, names and events is incredible. He kept us engaged with stories and vivid descriptions of happenings in each of the dozens of places we visited. He customized the tour to fit us, even fitting my profession.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Fenderson, I appreciate your review and thoroughly enjoyed our time together! I could have still given you another four hours if I did not have another tour. Not too often I am available last minute. I guess it was meant to be. Thank you once again and please visit Charleston in the future!
