Highlight of our trip to Charleston!

Touring with Adam was a highlight of our trip. We ended up being the only two on the tour and he was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Our favorite thing about Adam that may set him apart was his humility in stating that he wouldn’t make things up if he didn’t know the answer. We really appreciated this! As a Black family, we also appreciated his sensitivity to and empathy surrounding our understandably hard emotions regarding Charleston’s history of enslaved peoples. We felt cared for, entertained (he’s a great storyteller!), and really glad we toured with him. You won’t be disappointed!

Thank you Delwin for the great and thoughtful review! I had a really nice morning with y'all. I am honored that even though you were in Charleston for a short time y'all decided to spend some of that time learning about our history with me. It was a pleasure meeting you both, thanks again!

Robert Small’s story was interesting and made me want to find out more about his story. Pirates stories were not what I expected I had a completely different thoughts.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
As a historian, I am so happy to hear that I was able to motivate you to learn more about Robert Smalls! He is such a fascinating person from history and someone that deserves a monument here in Charleston for his story and service to the United States. Thanks for the nice review!

I had a great time hanging out with y'all Frank and I appreciate you writing this nice review. One of my favorite things about doing my history tours and keeping them small are that I can engage and talk with my groups better. I love when the people on my tour let me know some history from their families or area of the Country. Y'all were full of great history and information.

This was an awesome tour and lucky for us we were the only two people that day. September being hurricane season Charleston isn't that busy. Adam was a great story teller and knowledgeable tour guide! We learned a lot about the city and its people. We highly recommend this tour and any tour Adam heads up!!!

After Labor Day passes I'd say September and October are the best months to visit Charleston (As long as their aren't any Hurricanes lol). I had a great morning with y'all and appreciate having that time together.

Our tour with Adam was awesome. His history of Charleston was perfect. He was very personable and humerus. He’s stories were great as well. I spoke with him before your arrival to Charleston and he responded very quickly. He was very accommodating as well. We WILL be seeing Adam again on our next trip to Charleston. Trust me, you won’t be dissatisfied.
