If you love the City of Charleston, you need to take Alphonso's Gullah Tour after you take the traditional Charleston horse carriage tour. The Gullah Tour is one of the highest rated tours in the US. You will learn about the real history of Charleston, not the sugar coated version you get on the horse carriage tour. You will learn why George Washington is really called the 'Father of our Country', the real reason behind the construction of The Citadel and why Charleston had so many fires. The Tour Guide pulls no punches and gives a very factual and verifiable rendition of the true history of Charleston. It is an eye opening experience for all Americans and historians. Once you take this tour, things will start to make sense about why Charleston has the 'peculiar' racial issues it has and why it is significant that 8 individuals were recently killed there in Emmanual AME Church.

Ordered it from Amazon because I completely forgot to stop in the Visitors Center to buy it while in Charleston. Very happy to have it as a reminder of Mr. Brown's amazing tour. Being an amateur fan of dialects, it's great to have the stories written in both Gullah and English to see how the use of language varies. This guide can also function as a self-directed tour of the city's Gullah history, though I would highly recommend taking the actual bus tour, too to hear Mr. Brown's lively, engaging commentary style that a book alone cannot capture.

Very informative and useful for my upcoming venture to Gullah-Geeche this summer and it will be my resource during my trip

A Gullah Guide to Charleston .... was helpful to me when I toured Charleston with my reading group- The Last Page. As a means to celebrate six ladies rode the train from Virginia to Charleston, SC after reading the book, "Girl on the Train." I was able to follow the tour guide Mr. Brown as he pointed out the highlights of Charleston. Although the written Gullah language was challenging the English narrative was a benefit for me. The Gullah Guide was like reading "the other part of the story untold."

The time and effort that must have gone into Alphonso Brown's research is astouding! In addition, I really enjoyed the commentary in Gullah, which added a richness and authenticity to the account. I now see the City of Charleston with new eyes, and I love the vision all the more. LEE KNIGHT.

I took Alphonso's tour in Charleston and decided to buy this book in support of him. I enjoyed the tour and the book was cool. He pointed out some super cool places I would love to check out the next time I'm in his city. Thanks!

I enjoyed the option for trying to speak the Gullah language and having the King's English translation. The history lesson was outstanding.
This book is good and it is even better if you can go on the Gullah Tour with the author in Charleston. I read the book and then went on the tour. It is one of the best things to do in Charleston - made better by reading the book first.
