Meet the Crew:
Scott: A native Charlestonian, Scott is a real history and civil war buff. He enjoys showing guests and locals around his beautiful city of which he is very proud of – at the same time he is constantly learning new stories about the sights, the famous and hidden places in Charleston. When he is not leading tours, you’ll probably find him strolling the streets with his dog.
Diana: Diana wound up in Charleston 12 years ago, thanks to a college roommate at The University of Wisconsin who happened to be a Southerner. She quickly learned all she could about her new home – a living museum. Never known to be shy, and a hater of office jobs, she did the next logical thing with her new found knowledge and became a tour guide. After a hiatus to jump into the proverbial “real world” and get her master’s degree in teaching high school English and her certification to teach ESL to adults, Diana went back to tour guiding – what better way combine her loves of people, languages, cultures, and teaching?
