If you’re visiting Charleston, this is where you should start your visit. My husband and I were only in Charleston for a day after traveling down for a wedding. This tour was on our list for things we must do in town. Thank goodness Ashya and Godfrey were gracious enough to plan a Sunday tour. We were blown away by what we learned of the city’s history (and present) Gullah and Geechee culture in addition to pieces of general American history.
The information we learned has sparked ongoing conversation and curiosity. This tour should not be missed.

My wife and thought the tour was very informative and the history of the Gullah people should be more recognized. Those that take the tour should be prepared for a little shock as the Gulllah history is directly connected to slavery in this country and may be emotional for some.

Visited tour on 6/23/2018. Learned a lot about the rich history of Charleston! The tour bus was spacious and comfortable. Mr. Godfrey was an awesome, intelligent and passionate tour guide. Would highly recommend this knowledgeable experience to everyone!

If you’re looking for the truth then this is the tour for you. If are a close minded individual then this probably isn’t the tour for you. Very informative with the resources to back it up!

This tour had good information. Some I knew, other bits I didn't. Godfrey is entertaining and at the same time intensely serious almost to the point of religion! Our tour went past the allotted time even if it did start a tad bit late. Still the tour felt long because of the information provided and the intensity of the tour guide. He should lighten up a bit! I recommend it for adults who are interested in history and politics.
