    My friend and I (New Yorker City Gals) booked this tour and we had a blast. Graham was our guide and made us feel welcomed, safe, and was great with recommendations for Charleston. We never felt rushed or left behind on the tour. It was super informative and just a great morning on the water with the wind in our hair and a bit of adrenaline! Would definitely do this again and will recommend to all of our friends.
