Awesome experience, pleasant, educational walk through beautiful Charleston. Loved the history of the ladies.
This tour was amazing!! It was so informational and fun at the same time, Jonathan was so charismatic and really made EVERYTHING he said very interesting. At times my hair... read more was standing with some of the in depth stories he told about the history of some of Charleston’s well known and not so well known people. Throughout the tour you pass very infamous places in Charleston and Jonathan was just a wealth of knowledge I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better walk! Hoping to take the bad ass broads tour next.
Great personal tour. Very informative. The really seem to support local businesses. We have been a lot of walking tours, this was one of the best
My husband and I took have taken walking tours in Italy, Chicago and New Orleans. None were as informative and engaging as the time we spent with Jonathan walking in... read more historic Charleston. He has extensive knowledge, which one expects, but also a gift for storytelling and engaging the walker. We especially appreciated his directness about the Charleston’s history as a center for the arrival and sale of enslaved people and also the way in which the city was enriched by enslaved labor. He brought to life several women from Charleston’s past, which we appreciated. Clearly, he loves what he’s doing and his passion is conveyed in his interesting stories and details. We had the advantage of being the only two on the tour in early December, so we benefitted from Jonathan’s patience with our many questions. We realized an advantage of a walking tour over a carriage tour is that Jonathan could stop as long as it took to answer a question, not rush through a script as the carriage rolls by. We highly recommend JWalk Tours to anyone up for an entertaining, educational tour of Charleston. We plan to take another JWalk tour when next in Charleston.

His passion isn’t something easy to come by either, it’s different hearing about such important history when the person informing you cares at this level. As someone who hasn’t always claimed history as my favorite or even second favorite subject, I would take this tour over again in a heartbeat and can’t wait to see what else this company is capable of. You will be truly missing out if you visit Charleston and don’t take an opportunity to go on this walk.

The walk was very leisurely and even though it was 2 hours, time flew by and we weren't exhausted after the tour. Very easy walk, not too strenuous, especially for those who can't walk long distances.
