Mary C. is the consummate guide for Charleston and the plantations. Our party was extremely pleased with this tour and the extra effort she made to make it happen. We have never been disappointed with Tours By Locals. As a native of Charleston, she brought an extra dimension to the tour and made the facts come to life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was very rewarding for me to spend time with your family. Hope to see you all again on your next visit! Again, thanks for your kind words!
We did a 4 hour city tour and the next day a plantation tour with Mary. Mary was excellent. My husband and I were with another couple and Mary was attentive, sensitive and responsive to all of our varied interests. She was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Charleston. Not only was Mary a wonderful guide, but she is a really lovely person. It felt as if we were touring with a friend. After our final tour ended, two members of our party commented that she was the best guide they had ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you explore Charleston!

Mary gave us a great tour of the plantation area. Very accommodating of our needs. Personable and professional. Highly recommended! The vehicle and driver provided were first rate, as well.

Mary is a charming and delightful ambassador for Charleston. We were lucky to find her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! And it was wonderful meeting you both! I so enjoyed introducing you to Charleston.
Mary is a very knowledgeable and professional Charleston guide. We had been on a tour the day before and Mary was flexible to change our proposed tour itinerary so we were able to see two plantations in one day. The driver and car were first rate. A great way to see Middleton Plantation and Drayton Hall. Had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to introduce you and your wife to Charleston's historic plantations. I hope you will return!

Too much time was spent in the plantation gardens talking about trees, bushes and flowers. Would have preferred more time visiting and talking about plantation life. We did not even visit the slave quarters or the blacksmith shop.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so sorry you were disappointed. The plantation we visited is not well-suited for a wheel chair, and subsequently, we were unable to cover as much ground as usual in the time allotted.
