Steve is Awesome!

My mom and I took a tour with Steve today and it was fantastic! Steve is such a great guide and has a ton of knowledge of the city. It was so fun to roam through the historic area with him. He knows everyone too so it’s awesome to have that local feel as your cruising through the streets and people wave “Hi”. I would highly recommend taking his tour.

The Tour Was Great and Kay's Fantastic!

If you and your friends and family are looking for an informative, energetic, entertaining walking tour of old town Charleston, do not wait, sign up with Kay Abrams! The four of us did a 2.5 hr tour with Kay on Friday, May 13, 2022, and we unanimously LOVED it! Cannot recommend her highly enough! Regardless of your level of interest or expertise, Kay makes history come alive for everyone!

Steve was a Pleasure!!

Steve was a pleasure and a wealth of information. We loved the alleys he took us down, letting us know where all the public restrooms are located and recommendations for restaurants. He not only knows all of the houses and monuments, he knows all of the locals. We were out for over 2 hours and not once were we bored!!

Kay could not have been more adaptable, informative or kind. She shared so much info about Charleston with us - but perhaps more importantly, she was so fun! She pointed out things that were right out in the open that we never would have seen and educated us on so many Charleston specific facts. We will call Kay EVERY time we return to learn more and more about this fabulous city!

She Is The Absolute Best

We just completed the Alley tour with Kay. I have done many private tours all over the world and Kay is one of the best . This tour was fascinating and she took us to places that most tourist would not ever discover. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the history, gardens and just wonderful trivia was contagious. We loved her passion for Charleston and learned so much!

Tour with Steve

Steve was an excellent resource, regaling us with the history of Charleston and funny anecdotes. He seems to be a bit of an institution and very well regarded in his community. Don’t miss an opportunity to gain his insights!

She Deserves All 5 Stars and More

We would like to say that Kathryn exceeded our expectations with her Alleys tour of Charleston. We have taken several ToursByLocals tours in several places in the world. They are always good but Kathryn's was exceptional. She kept our attention, showed us things we would not have seen on our on, or would not have recognized them as important. She is friendly, professional, and a delight to spend time touring with.
