Al really knows his city and the vast history that makes it up. He started off asking what our interest was and he made certain to tailor the walk to our interest. He took us off the beaten path and our group of 8 hung on every word and really felt we got to see the historic city.
Our group of 4 was the only ones on the tour on this hot day and Al customized it to fit one of our party who was having trouble walking very fast or very far. We had frequent breaks in the shade and allowed the person having problems chances to sit down.
Al was our tour guide. A native Charlestonian filled will history facts and anecdotes. Each building we passed that had some historical fact was explained. From the bolts and rods added after the earthquake, to the pirates courtyard and bricks to the gardens. He made the area alive.
Very much enjoyed our walking tour with Al. His encyclopedic knowledge of the city, architecture, history, residents and more made two plus hours on a hot summer day go by in a flash. No question seemed too obscure to stump him. And he was pleasant and friendly as he adapted the tour to our interests and the day. Recommend his tours to anyone.
Tim is a wealth of information about Charleston and its history, the buildings, the stories, the past residents. This was a perfect way to begin our vacation in this interesting city. The tour was well-paced and very enjoyable.
