Great Tour and Guide
Ashley_B
, Jul 2022
Adam was an excellent guide with lots of great knowledge and stories. The areas he took us too were great. I had booked this tour for my teen who is into haunted things. Adam was great and very patient, my mom who was also with us is disabled and is a bit slower on walks but she did her best to keep up and Adam waited for her each time before he started. After the tour he took a few extra minutes and we chatted and exchanged some ghost stories of our own.

He was a wonderful storyteller and he even threw in a little trivia which I always enjoy. I won’t say what it was for the sake of spoilers, but that last story he told was super creepy.

Adam is a great storyteller. We learned so much about the haunted history of Charleston. The small group experience was so much better than large crowded tours. One of the best tours ever!

This tour was so fun!! My boyfriend and I both said we could listen to Adam talk for hours lol. It was so interesting to hear some of the history of Charleston that you won’t read in the history books. He made history not boring at all! It was so fun and we highly recommend! (Adam plz start a history podcast!)
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hi Megan thanks to you and your boyfriend for taking my tour and I am glad I could make history come alive and not so boring. I swear...I could probably talk all night if given the chance which means I could probably do a podcast as well...thanks for the suggestion :)

The first thing I noticed about Adam when he introduced himself was how grateful he was with meeting new people he was giving tours to and where each person was from. I love how passionate he was as he explained each story and how he gave real life experiences for each one. He even tied in his near-death experience with bacteria attacking his heart while telling a story about cholera and west Nile. I’d definitely go on one of his tours again!
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Awe thank you so much for writing this wonderful review!! I am certainly lucky it was 2020 when I had that near-death experience because medical technology saved my life. I wasn't relying on 250 year old medical technology like "Saved by The Bell" lol. Given that near-death experience, I am indeed genuinely happy to see and meet people again and I am glad y'all were some of those people I got to meet.
