When in Charleston, Joyce is your 'go to' guide. As we thoroughly enjoyed our experience with her.She is professional, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating and just a wonderful person. We took two tours with her and to say we were extremely impressed is an understatement. She has an incredible passion and love for her city and both the city tour and the Middleton Plantation tours were beyond my expectations. I learned so much, she planned our tours and ensured our interests, passions were addressed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I so enjoyed both your and Christopher's company. Guests as yourselves are a delight. Your knowledge, experience and interests are an asset to planning. Thank you so much for your gift! I hope to see you again. All the best, Joyce

A superb tour by a FANTASTIC guide!! We thoroughly enjoyed our full day with Joyce W. She was just amazing! Knowledgeable, warm, friendly, enthusiastic, and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that we had a memorable experience while in her care. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of Charleston and it's history, and we could not have asked for more. We can't wait to get back to Charleston, and when we do, we will certainly sign-up for another private full-day tour with Joyce W.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: S.K., Such a kind review. I was as impressed with your knowledge and interest in the 1700's era as you were of this area. So glad to be of service for you both. I also look forward to your next visit to Charleston. All the best to you both. Thank you kindly, Joyce W.

Joyce is a truly talented, professional, and fun guide!! Bottom line (for those who like brief reviews)... You will not be disappointed! We had a most enjoyabe two 1/2-day tours with Joyce. 1st day--downtown Charleston. She gave a fabulous walking/driving tour! We've been here before but learned many new little tidbits of history--very cool! Nect day to Middleton Place Plantation--so beautiful and so wonderfully storied by Joyce! After 2 days, we felt like old friends! Thank you Joyce! P, T, N, & J :-))
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: P,T,N & J, I am delighted that your experience was a memorable one. I am honored to be an ambassador to one of America's most historical city. Please know that I felt the same about the four of you too! I was sad to say goodby! Please look me up on your next visit. It is my pleasure to be your host. Kindly, Joyce W.

Joyce was one of the best guides I have ever had. My group loved her, her knowledge, and the way she presented all this to us. It left a lasting impression and I plan to go back in 2017!
Richard B.United States
Joyce is a terrific guide, whose knowledge of Charleston is broad, deep, and very engaging. We had a marvelous time with her as she opened up Charleston for us. I walk with a cane, so Joyce transported us to some of the farthest sites--like the campus of The Citadel--in her comfortable, air-conditioned van, allowing me to use my limited range to enjoy the spectacular streets and houses of the city on foot. Do not miss her tour through the Dock Street Theater; it's fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Barron, Thank you kindly for your complimentary review. I hope others will in turn will use your guidance in selecting a guide. I enjoyed shrilling Charleston with you both! All the best to you! Joyce W. I look forward to touring with you on your next visit!
Robert SchmauderUnited States
Great tour. Joyce's love of the city was very obvious.
Joel PriceScottsdale, AZ, United States
Joyce may be a character or might be called quirky. But let me tell you something. This lady really, really knows her stuff. It's not just the outside of buildings but things we need to see briefly inside as well. Add to that photo tips (a reason for selection) and a most accommodating manner. Very special: she readily acceded to stopping and allowing us to take pictures, giving advice along the way. Finally, she was most accommodating to a handicapped member of our group. I give Joyce an A+.
Laura BrownUnited States

We truly enjoyed our tour of Charleston, SC, with Joyce. She is upbeat, and extremely knowledgeable about the history, architecture and "vibe" of the city. The pace was relaxed, with Joyce doing a part driving, part walking tour. We would recommend her highly to other travelers.
