Great information my only critique was the group was too full with 20 people and the tour guide walked way too fast and such uneven streets. My poor elderly mother really could not keep up very well and almost fell a few times. If you're young and full ofull of spunk this is great but if you're older it's borderline dangerous.😔

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are happy that you felt the tour was informative. The standard group size for walking tours in Charleston is 20 guests per tour guide but we also offer small group or private tours for a more intimate experience. All of our tours cover a distance of approximately 1.5 to 2 miles in a 2 hour period. The tours are conducted at a leisurely pace with frequent stops to hear the stories from the guide. We feel that one of the horse drawn carriage tours or bus tours may have been a better fit for your mother. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in our beautiful city and we would hope to welcome you back sometime soon.
