Reserved a tour and the guide never showed. We phoned but he didn't pick up. Left a message and it was returned the next day. Sad way to run a business.

The tour guide David was very nice and knows the gullah areas quite well based on his personal life experiences. The tour overall was not quite what we expected. The gentrification of the gullah areas by developers has changed all of the traditional environments. These...More

Hope this answer not too late! Recommend car rental or taxi to go to starting point. Tour led by older member of Gullah community on mini van bus. Excellent and no fluff.
