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!

When carriages rolled by it seemed that they only said one tenth of the information Fin gave us. Thank you... More

We were so lucky to have Fin as our tour guide. His passion and knowledge made the history of Charlestown come alive! This is not to be missed - you will walk away with a whole new view of the town. You will get your money's worth and so much more!

My husband and I took a two hour tour with Brian that was 2-1/2 hours because he is so knowledgeable and so willing to answer anything we asked. He is very personable and personally interested in the stories he tells and the facts are well researched. It is an excellent tour with an even better guide.

Fin was such a great guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about the historic city. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Charleston. We were only here for a day and this was the best way to learn and see as much as possible in the shortest time.

This tour was fantastic. My guide was Fin and he was extremely knowledgeable about the Charleston area and history in general. He was witty and very interesting to listen to. There is lots of walking which is exactly what I had hoped for. The streets and sidewalks in Charleston are narrow and uneven. You really need to watch your steps... More

My boyfriend and I went to Charleston this weekend for the first time to celebrate my birthday. Because we were only here for a week, we were looking to do as much as we could in the least amount of time. I didn't know anything about Charleston before this tour but I learned more about the history than I thought... More

My wife and I came into town for a few days and came across this tour. It was very interesting and insightful. Finn was a pleasure and had a great deal of knowledge. We had no idea there was so much history in the town. Definitely would recommend.
