Brian was awesome! I can't wait to come back and ask for Brian to guide us on another tour around Charleston. Highly recommend Brian and Toursbylocals.

Brian gave us a really excellent 4-hour private tour to introduce us to the history and architecture of Downtown Charleston. He was at our hotel 15 minutes ahead of time and right away picked up on our interests and background knowledge so he was able to tailor his tour very well to two British visitors with good general knowledge but a patchy historical grasp of the Civil War period. We would recommend him highly to other visitors as a friendly guide with an encyclopedic memory.

This was our first visit to South Carolina and we totally enjoyed our 4 hour walking tour in downtown Charleston with Brian. He was unbelievably knowledgeable and was able communicate a lot of information in a very relaxed and conversational manner. Our pace was comfortable, we never felt rushed, yet we came away feeling like we got a real taste for the city and it's history. We'd highly recommend Brian if you'd like to enhance your visit to Charleston.

Booked the night before and was promptly responded to by Brian. What an expert and so flexible. Would consider booking him before other tours offered in the city. He will accommodate anything you would like to do. I will call Brian on my next visit to Charleston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Jablonski, I had a great time! I am glad I was able to do the tour on the short notice. Please come back again! Brian S.

Brian knows the history of every house in old Charleston. He has interesting stories about each and takes you places where others aren't. We saw glimpses of beautiful gardens and learned who built what and who modified what and who lived and died in all these places. He was totally engaging and enjoyable to be with. Highly recommend Brian.

5 stars. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time in Charleston with Brian. He was very knowledgeable and a great guy. Highly recommend!
Agnes KirschnerUnited States
Brian was wonderful. He asked for our preferences before beginning the tour so that we could concentrate on our personal interests. Surprisingly, we learned a tremendous amount of our country's history from Brian. We all had history in school, we have read a lot on our own and yet he was a wealth of fascinating information. Brian is a wonderful, and incredibly knowledgeable guide. It was a pleasure to spend time with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. & Mrs. Kirschner, I had an exceptional time with you! I enjoyed our in depth conversations and hope you return to Charleston in the future. Please contact me when you do return!
Barbara BenderUnited States
Brian is a true historian! In the 4+ hours we spent with him, we learned so much about Charleston, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War - and now we need to go back to learn more! He was a knowledgable and gracious tour guide, and we would definitely recommend him. Five stars!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great time with you two! I am glad you enjoyed your time in Charleston. There is still plenty more to see!
Patricia SingerNew York, NEW YORK, United States
Brian was great. He is a wealth of knowledge about Charleston and U.S. History and how they are woven together through history politics and culture. He was sensitive to our needs and flexible with changing the itinerary when we wanted to include more sites. He also was helpful with restaurants and planning other sites to see. Just wished we had planned more with him. Would recommend him highly. Thanks Brian for helping to make Richard and I have a great time in Charleston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to have the two of you on my tour! I am glad we could sit down after the tour and talk as well. Thank you so much for your comments and please come back to Charleston!

I don't think anyone knows more about this charming town, nor about American history than Brian. We learned a lot.
Vanessa PizzutoUnited States
Brian is friendly and knowledgeable - he was flexible, too. He went beyond his scheduled time to show us the City. We enjoyed it very much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. Pizzuto. I hope you all enjoyed the city and your time here! I really had great time with you all! Brian
Adrian Fenderson, DDSUnited States
Brian accepted a late night booking for a morning tour. He was at the meeting place early and met us with a great smile. His enthusiasm for history and Charleston was equalled by his love for people. He gave us an all day tour that was spectacular. His knowledge of US history, dates, names and events is incredible. He kept us engaged with stories and vivid descriptions of happenings in each of the dozens of places we visited. He customized the tour to fit us, even fitting my profession.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Fenderson, I appreciate your review and thoroughly enjoyed our time together! I could have still given you another four hours if I did not have another tour. Not too often I am available last minute. I guess it was meant to be. Thank you once again and please visit Charleston in the future!
Jeanie ReedUnited States
Brian did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable, personable and flexible. He was understanding of our tight schedule. His tour was jam-packed with information and our students enjoyed having him lead the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. I had a great time with the group and hope everyone enjoyed the productions they attended and did well with their performances. Please come again!
