Welcome to Charleston, well known as a drinking city with a slight history problem! With this in mind guests will meet at the initial bar location where some complimentary appetizers will be served and guests will have the opportunity to purchase some local craft beer or cocktails while the guides (Adam or Bryan) go over a brief personal introduction and history of the City of Charleston. From there guests will walk to predetermined historic sites around the French Quarter including one of the oldest homes in Charleston. Brief stories and accurate historical insight from a licensed guide will cover a period stemming from the early colonial days all the way through World War II including topics on the revolutionary/civil war, pirate attacks, and of course alcohol in this famous city. This is not a typical "sit there and shut up tour" but rather an opportunity to engage with your licensed guide! Guests will be able to seek a brief respite at the next dive bar location for another small complimentary appetizer and a particular focus will be given to the period of prohibition in Charleston as a city rife with bootleggers, speakeasies, and "Blind Tigers." The tour will finish at a stunningly beautiful local park in close proximity to other area bars and restaurants since many guests just don't want the history and hops tour to end!
Captain Bryan is a 7th generation Charlestonian of Huguenot Heritage. A people that would have been among the first settlers of this historic city. As a charter captain, licensed tour guide, public servant (historic commission), and former senior analyst; Captain Bryan is the perfect guide with which to explore the city. Adam Moore lives just over the bridge on James Island with his wife and son. In 2015 he quit a management job and transitioned back to his roots as a history major by becoming a licensed guide. As a veteran tour guide, he has met guests from all around the world and believes giving tours is both an honor and a pleasure. Both of these guides have a thirst for not only history but also local watering holes which correlates to a unique experience for guests to the area. Come join Adam or Bryan and "live the local life."
Two separate appetizers will be provided at the two bars along the route.
