Our family enjoyed a great two hour private walking tour with Ashley. She was full of information and made the history of Charleston come alive. This was a great way to tour Charleston. It was perfect for children and adults in our group.

Probably, not. If I remember correctly, the tour is about 2 hours long. If you can book a morning tour, when it is cooler and less crowded.
