Hi, my name is Brian Simms and I am a 10th generation Charlestonian. Our All About Charleston tour features the history, culture and architecture of the area. We will stroll the streets and alleyways of the "Holy City" while sharing stories along the way, covering overall Charleston history, the people who built this city and its trials and tribulations. There is a rich history and culture I would like to share and look forward to showing you the sights of our area, creating an experience you will remember for years to come!

Great way to get a sense of this great city. Brian took the time to ask where everyone was from and worked everyone’s home State or nationality into the history of Charleston. This was a cold day but well worth it.

We got Sam as our tour guide. Sam is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, nice, 5-stars all the way round. Good pace walking tour. We get to see many historic sites in short 2 hours and took lots of pictures.
