Spend more money and get a real tour- we got less than what we paid for…

Should’ve been instructions to download before we left. Impossible to download. We are locals but thought we’d get a more in-depth visit doing it on our own. Took about a half hour to get it to work. unable to get it on my phone so we only had one phone working after paying for two. By the time we got it to work, we went into Bumpa’s, had a cocktail and escaped the heat.

Hi Donna, it sounds like you never took the tour or downloaded the app. Sorry you missed out on this experience! We have 1000’s of locals write us and saying they never knew about the spots our tour and the stories you learn. Since you are local, your are in luck! The tour never expires and you can take it anytime. Feel free to download the app at home, download the tour, and then go back anytime to take it, fall is especially cool! Please contact us at info@walkntours.com, I’m more than happy to help with anything. I know when you do take it, you will love the tour! And hopefully you'll update that star rating ;)

Having lived in .Charleston at one time, I was so appalled at the fake southern accent used during the tour. I certainly think it is a disservice to Charleston.

The African American narrator we choose has a unique voice that many say they love, and we choose it as the story of the French Quarter is also the story of slavery, as you saw the Old Slave Mart and heard the history of slavery on the tour, and It may come as a surprise but at one point as many as 40% of the slaves that entered the United States came through Charleston, which you learned on the tour. We are sorry you did not like his voice and you were 'appalled' that his southern accent was not like the accent you preferred. His accent is in fact southern. And we like it. All of our tours have unique narrators to tell the story of the city when you take the tour. We, and 1000's of others, like his voice and accent. As we do all the narrators we use.

Good overview of Charleston French Quarter

Despite the bugs in the software (which have purportedly been fixed), this is a nice self-guided tour. It's a good length, gives the right amount of information so you're not over-loaded and allows for a deeper dive when you want it. I recommend this for an introduction to Charleston's French Quarter.

Enjoyed the walk listening to the history of Charleston. The tone was a bit hokey, and the accent seemed more Texan than Southern, but it was definitely informative. Also, the train whistle was a bit loud and annoying. I’d say a quiet bell tone would do.

Thanks for your feedback, we will keep that in mind for the next tour
