Jeff Zimmerman, an eighth-generation South Carolinian, feels Charleston in his bones. His love for the city runs deep, and with Charleston in a Nutshell, he's found a compelling way to share it with locals and tourists alike. Zimmerman's company leads walking tours around the city, opening eyes to its beautiful architecture and storied history.
One of the most popular offerings is the Civil War tour, which visits St. Michael’s Church and the old slave mart before showing off views of Fort Sumter from the battery. Zimmerman backs up each tour with historical photographs to help visitors recognize the past in the sights before them. Morning and candlelight walking tours explore more of Charleston's history in depth, delving further into the grand town homes and the secret hoard of gold beneath the city's castle.
