"...I recently made a return visit to Charleston with my husband. We were once again charmed by the history, culture and beauty of the French Quarter part of town. We toured historic homes, museums and walked the cobblestone streets. However, best of all was a tour with Leigh Handal of Charleston Raconteurs. We spent a day with Leigh in the French Santee area, She customized our trip to include our specific interests. It was phenomenal as she knew all the ins and outs of the area and gave us insight into who and what had shaped the city of Charleston and its outlying areas. She packed hundreds of years of history into a day. What a way to get out of town for a day and feel the vibe."
