Can’t wait to go to Charleston and take a tour.

GCrowe89 ,

Great show

Took a tour while in Charleston and loved it! This show is a great listen!!

Snikkers180 ,

Great show and very informative

Nicholas does a great job of researching his locations and telling a great story. Since I live in Charleston I’m familiar with so many of the places he explores but he’s introduced me a few more that I haven’t visited. Give him a listen!
