The pace was easy going, the knowledge was in-depth and incredibly well delivered, even the weather didn't let us down. This is the absolute best tour I've taken in... read more my life to date. Jonathan was our guide and we couldn't ask a question that he didn't know the answer to. He covered some of Charleston's darker history as well as inspiring stories of some people and events that curved the town into the place it is now. There was a little architecture thrown in too. I wanted to clap at the end but I felt like it would've been awkward. Bravo Sir!

I highly recommend JWalk Tours! Our tour exceeded all expectations. Will was an encyclopedia of knowledge and a gracious guide through the history of old Charleston.

John has more passion and knowledge than the average tour guide in Charleston. What makes his tour so special is the way he ties together all of his knowledge to... read more keep you captivated on an amazing walk through historic downtown. 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.

We enjoyed this walking tour! We found it to be one of the most interesting tours and we walked away with so much more knowledgeable of Charleston! ... read more We adore and highly recommend Jonathan and JWalk tours! We left Charleston with so much knowledge and a better understanding of Charleston's place in history. Due to Jonathan's passion and thirst for further knowledge about the city, we also have a better appreciation for all of those who were not recognized or treated with the dignity and respect they deserved. He makes a point to show his passion for educating others about the history, as well as the mistakes and the dark history of Charleston. I love the untold stories that he shared with us, which give us a better understanding and help make "us" who "we" are today. We look forward to returning to revisit and check out his other tours to see how much other parts of Charleston's history we can learn!!!!
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.
Loved, loved, loved it! So much more interesting than most. We learned the history behind the history and went at our pace. I would recommend to anyone.
I have been a tour guide for 4 years and this one of the best tours and experiences I’ve had in Charleston. John not only provides amazing and interesting “herstory”... read more but it is delivered such a funny and engaging way that you feel you’re listening to an old friend.

Our tour was on Christmas Day and it was the best present I have ever opened!

He seamlessly weaves historical milestones into fascinating stories that deepen our understanding of the struggles and injustices of the early slave trade and settlement days of the South. John's passion for this subject and his compassion for those who suffered those times leaves as much of an impression as the facts itself. Don't miss this tour..... it's truly the best in Charleston!!!!

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.
