Great app for self guided tour!

After buying a different app for a self guided walking tour of Charleston I discovered this free one, it is excellent! The stories are compiled by the Charleston Historic Society, revealing so much about the culture and history of the city that the other self guided tours don’t. I especially enjoyed the one about the Emanuel AME church where 9 parishioners were killed in a racist massacre (my words) - one of the narrators was a church member. You must get it!

A must download for visitors and locals!

This an amazing app for anyone wanting to learn more about the wonderful history of Charleston, SC. The featured tours are packed with rich details and history. The real jewel of the app is the map tab. This interactive map allows the user to pin point significant buildings and learn their history making it easy to create a self guided walking tour.

“Woke” History - exhausting leftist propoganda

This app is filled with a leftist’s view of all things. The creators of this app ruin everything.

It’s a good idea but the commentary is exhausting and makes one roll their eyes at every stop.
