Let a fourth-generation Charlestonian introduce you to one of the most charming cities in the country. Explore quiet alleys as well as busy streets with someone who has written six books on Charleston and writes regularly about it for local...more
Had a private tour for 2 with Mary Coy in Charleston. She has an incredibly vast knowledge of the area as a 5th Generation Charlestonian/Published Author. She was very friendly and easily relatable. Definitely recommend.
I contacted Mary a few weeks prior to setup a private tour for two. She was easy to deal with on the phone and punctual when we finally met at the City Market. I really enjoyed all the details about the city that were pointed...More
Mary Coy was the most resourceful, interesting guide who also is very accommodating: she generously changed our tour time to the next day when rain threatened to interfere with the walk.. She is a fifth generation Charlestonian who knows the history of the city, as...More

We don’t normally take guided tours and try to discover cities on our own for the most part. But this time, we made an exception, partly because I had read great things about this specific tour. It is led by Mary Coy, a fourth generation...More
Mary is a life-long Charlestonian and has fascinating stories from family members that I doubt you would get on many of the other tours. We took a private tour because of my elderly mother, and it was worth every penny. Perfect introduction to Charleston.
We took the Charleston 101 walking tour with Mary Coy on our second day upon arrival. It gave us an entirely different perspective on the city, it's heritage, and it's transformation. In addition to the "tourist" information, Mary shared numerous facts and lore about the...More
