Joyce was amazingly knowledgeable about every facet of history & life in Charleston. She is a fount of fascinating information. She loves enthusiastically pointing out & giving info about well researched sites in her adopted city. She drove us to the Middleton Plantation - which was just gorgeous - & very interesting! We had a lovely lunch there, and then she drove us around Charleston, pointing out the Historic sites. It's a wonderful city, and she was the perfect guide to show it to us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review! All the best to you both. Sincerely, Joyce W.

Joyce was absolutely terrific. Extremely knowledgeable, interesting, fun and very engaging. We had been to Charleston several times before, but Joyce introduced us to many sites and facets of Charleston of which we were not aware. Gave us a fascinating tour. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning more about Charleston, its history, and its people. Very memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I certainly enjoyed our tour together. Thank you kindly for your nice review. My aim is to outdo your expectations. Sincerely yours, Joyce W.

Joyce was a delight to spend the afternoon with. She showed up fully prepared with a wonderful smile on her face. She was energetic and full of a wealth of information. I asked for a custom tour and she researched everything, made up a tour booklet for me to keep and took me to all the places tied to the movie locations I wanted to see. We fell in love with Joyce and with Charleston. I highly recommend her as a guide. If I go back, I won't hesitate to hire her again. Dani

Joyce's knowledge was astounding. She really made Charleston come alive in an exciting way and easily laid out it's place in history. We really appreciated seeing some of the areas outside the historic area too (the Citadel and the university). We have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the city and the plantations as a result of our 2 tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to have been your ambassador to Charleston. Thank you for your kind review. All the best to you both! Thank you, Joyce W.

Very knowledgeable maybe a bit information overload on Charleston tour for the short period of time 4 hours

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Hume, I have taken your critique to mind. I agree with the "bit of information overload." Nicely said. I am now more cognizant of taking time for guests to digest information and ask questions. I appreciate your 5 star review and apologize for loading too much on you at one time. Thank you kindly for bringing this to my attention. All the best to you Miss Norma and Miss Ann. Thank you, Joyce W.

Our tour with Joyce was the highlight of our trip to Charleston! She was wonderfully accomodating. The weather was going to be rainy so she contacted us in the morning and we scheduled to meet a few hours early so that we could get as much in on foot as possible. Her timing was spot on! She has an enormous breadth of knowledge about this fascinating town. Joyce has an excitement that is contagious which made spending time with her an absolute delight!

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
