Toan Head Picture

Owner and Creator/Golf Enthusiast

Toan D
Toan grew up here in Charleston and worked hard to rise to the top. He learned from every work opportunity—organization skills from the night shift at a Waffle House, humbleness and how to keep his head down and work hard as part of a landscaping crew, and expert navigation skills from driving Charleston’s streets as a cab driver. A business graduate from Charleston College, Toan used his education and collective work experience to fulfill his dream of being a business owner a year ago. Toan developed an executive car service into a consistently growing local business.  He always has a million thoughts in the cooker, but the idea of developing tours and a concierge service took first priority. Crafted travel was quick to develop.  Toan has been blissfully married for six years and is the doting father of a one year old tyke with another little angel soon on the way.

Al Ray

History Guide

Al Ray

We are so pleased to have Al on board as our history guide.  Al started his guiding career as a hungry college student in 1979. He will tell you that he started out in a carriage barn shoveling horse dung and he’s been at it ever since! Seeking cleaner work, he went on to drive tour buses and conduct walking tours. Al’s family has been here for over 200 years, and he knows his home turf unlike anybody else. His in-depth knowledge on so many topics gives us the option to create just the right tour to fit your interests! Al is also a dealer in fine Southern stoneware made in the Deep South between 1820 and 1930, so I guess that makes him an old time pot dealer too.
