Gullah Geechee Tours Superb tour

We did this tour because of fantastic reviews, the enthusiastic recommendation of our host, and our interest in African American history and culture. It was even better than we expected. We especially appreciated his introduction to the Gullah language and people: fascinating, and not easy to find. Easy to do--mostly sitting in a comfortable van.

Gullah Geechee Tours Terrific tour of Charleston

This is a tour about the Gullah's role in the history of Charleston. You will see parts of Charleston that are not on the conventional tours, which gives you a better appreciation of the city - past and present - and all its inhabitants.

Gullah Geechee Tours Best tour

The tour focuses on the lives of African Americans of Charleston: slaves, craftsmen, wealthy landowners, and the Gullah culture and language. You'll learn more stories about African Americans than you'll hear anywhere else and see some of their homes, churches, crafts. The guide's animated way of telling the stories kept us enthralled.

Gullah Geechee Tours Entertaining bus tour

The tour guides has a wealth of information about Charleston and its history. He has a sense of humor and although he must have told the stories a million times they still seemed to be fresh. Great tour if you want to sit in the air-conditioning (as opposed to walking or carriage tours) and still see a lot of interesting homes and buildings.

Gullah Geechee Tours Charlestons' deep history

I loved this tour almost as much as I loved the openness and kindness and perspective of the guide. We saw a lot of the sites from Sue Monk Kidd's book, The Invention of Wings, and a nationally celebrated blacksmith artist, Philip Simmons.
