Eric was prompt when he picked me up across the river in Mount Pleasant. The first thing he asked was what my interests were. He then tailored the tour to those interests. He is a history buff and knows all about the city and region's history. And there is so much! I had no idea! Really, one cannot get full enjoyment of visiting this wonderful city without a personal tour and Eric's was just great! Thanks Eric.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for posting the positive review. I had a great time with you!

Eric was knowledgeable, entertaining, and shared the most interesting stories about Charleston. He also was flexible with our needs and constraints. He was clearly respected by the locals and the venues we toured - everyone knew him. My wife and I had never been to Charleston before this visit, I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Eric on the first day of your visit to get the most out of your Charleston experience. Great Value!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Thrilled to hear that you both had a good time!

We spent a wonderful evening with Eric who is an incredible storyteller and truthteller. His ghost stories offered a different and interesting perspective on the colorful history of Charleston. We really enjoyed his stories as he wove us through hidden alleyways, haunted graveyards, side streets and sea walls. We learned about Gullah culture, pirates, lost loves and spooky (but not scary for those of you who would like to take their kids) unexplained happenings in and about Charleston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Debra, Thank you for your kind words! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the tour. I had a great time spending the eveningwith you! Best, Eric

First time in Charleston. Great tour by Eric. He met us in our hotel lobby right on time and we did a walking tour of the historic downtown area. Eric is knowledgeable and a very good speaker. We covered over 250 years of history, in an interesting and entertaining manner. Highly recommend some time with Eric when in Charleston. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad that you enjoyed the tour. Thank you for posting a review. Hope the rest of your trip went well! I do hope that I get to meet your son when he visits this summer. If you're ever in town again and need something, please don't hesitate to let me know. Eric

Overall the tour was satisfactory but our small group didn't feel a personal connection and thought the tour included too much schtick. Erik is obviously a well regarded guide as people at many of our stops knew him. I believe that some of the historical data might not be precise and he told a brief history of the Civil War from a Southerner's perspective ("the war wasn't really about slavery...") as if it was a universally accepted account of settled history. But he knows Charleston!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Bright, I'm sorry that you didn't feel a "personal connection." However, I don't really understand what you mean by "schtick." Was it my southern accent? Sorry, but that's actually the way that I talk. Or was it some of the stories that that I told because you asked that I be sure "to include a few historical gossipy tidbits." As for the historical data not being precise, everything I told you was correct. I NEVER said the war wasn't about slavery." I said tensions began in 1828 over over tariffs.

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

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

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!

Eric was wonderful and is an amazing storyteller. We took Eric's private ghost tour with our two girls (8 and 10). He was easily able to adjust to keep the content appropriate for them while still being extremely engaging. He will keep you in suspense the entire tour. This was our favorite part our our trip to Charleston.
