Lauri McKennaUnited States
Best historic "dark side" walking tour! Eric's exceptional wealth of knowledge of the history of the families and homes of Charleston was incredible. My 15 year old son and his friend were enthralled with his stories. The evening weather was perfect - a little cool and a little dark in alleys, which added to the aura of a night walk around the City listening to Eric's suspenseful stories of the hauntings and gruesome happenings of Charleston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lauri, Thank you so much for the kind words. Glad the kids had a good time! Have a happy & safe Thanksgiving... Eric

Ian CharmanUnited Kingdom
We accompanied Eric on the Charleston private walking tour and have to say it was most excellent. Eric brings the history of Charleston from early times right up to the present alive. He does it in a very enjoyable fashion with many anecdotes and stories around Charleston and it's (often very) colourful historic inhabitants. A very enjoyable time. Recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ian, Thank you so much for your kinds words... and for posting a review! Best, Eric
Kenneth OgdenUnited States
Eric L. Treated us to a fantastic adventure. We learned and saw Charleston in a light we otherwise would not have had a clue about. His depth of knowledge and wealth of little known facts kept our attention completely. We will certainly recommend him to anyone we know coming to Charleston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. I had a great time with both of you! There was one more story that I thought you'd find interesting... recent history. In 1986, a priest at St. Philip's resigned because he said that he'd been cursed by a witch!

My wife and I were in Charleston for the first time and wanted a full day tour to learn about this historical city. Eric gave us exactly what we were looking for and more. We started with a half day walking tour followed by lunch and then a shuttle to a working plantation and some additional historical sights. Eric's knowledge of Charleston the town and all of the history was impressive. What was more impressive was his ability to weave numerous stories into a rich tapestry that was Charleston.
