Our guide, Dustin, knew his stuff. I learned a lot about the city, the Civil War era issues (slavery and wealth), and state of South Carolina.

Saw a lot of old buildings and hearing the history of the city. The tour guide was very knowledgeable but his sense of humor was kind of dull and it seemed like he was the only one that thought he was funny. Also it was very tacky at the end when he basically asked for tips.
