About Our Tour

We have been edutaining guests from each State in the U.S. and over 40 foreign countries since 1995 which simply translates to us being around to personally experience and document the city’s growth over more than the past two decades.

That means that we were here giving tours during the rise of the big banks, the building of the Carolina Panther’s stadium, the Spectrum Center (formerly Bobcats Arena — home of the N.B.A. Charlotte Hornets), BB&T Ballpark (home of the Charlotte Knights AAA Baseball), and all of the tallest skyscrapers in Uptown/Downtown/Center City.

As such our historical tour stories unfold from first-hand experience and are conducted RAIN or shine (except walking and scooter tours) in CLIMATE-CONTROLLED vans that take you intriguing places Golf Carts and Segways do not. We tell a few jokes along the way on our Charlotte NC Tours but most of our information is dedicated to history in a family-friendly alcohol-free learning environment.

We Cover 50-100 Sites and Approximately 20 Miles on our Driving Tours!
