The Legend of the Lost Tribes of the Gullah Geechee…..

On our Gullah-Geechee tour Godfrey Jefferson KHill is connecting the dots of history and putting the puzzle pieces of time back together again. The secrets of Charleston couldn’t stay hidden forever. Some secrets are just to Big to remain secrets. History hiding right in front of your eyes. Its hard to see at first but once your able to see, its then hard not to see. Godfrey has found the bread crumbs of ancient times and history that Hansel and Gretel lost in the woods. The path less traveled is the way of the Gullah-Geechee. The Gullah-Geechee culture is about tracing your steps all the way back home. Its about knowing your past to know your future. The Gullah-Geechee culture represents the direct descendants of the legendary slaves. A beautiful story; a slave’s history told most accurately from Charleston’s ONLY authentic native Gullah-Geechee historian, anthropologist and curator.

We thought we had seen and heard them all….
Well you know what they say…. We’ve been coming to Charleston to vacation for more than 30yrs together. Godfrey has absolutely proven that we still have so much more to see and to hear. Godfrey has raised the bar to a much higher level and we will never ever be the same after experiencing his Gullah Gullah tour. The entire bus was in aw from beginning all the way until the end and still wanting more. He even went over the time by more than an hour just because we kept asking more and more questions. We have taken so many tours in our life time and have heard many of the tour companies sharing the same stories but Godrey is a pure breath of beautiful fresh and clean air!! Totally original and overwhelmingly impressive. A very special tour in a class all its own. Go and see for yourself.
Educational and Engaging
I recommend every child to go on this tour. The guide was extremely engaging as he rendered the history of the Gullahas!
Informative
I learned so much more than expected. Godfrey was energetic, truthful and accommodating. I will recommend this tour to everyone!
Great!
Super knowledgeable! If you want true knowledge about the the North American slave trade, then no better to get it from one of the few Charleston born and raised tour guides and the only Gullah tour guide! Would recommend to anyone!
Great tour
Godfrey is a great tour guide, he presented more information then our group ever expected.
Spacious new vehicle to tour in with video presentations also. Great value!
It was great!
I thought the tour was very informative and the guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. He was even nice enough to help one of the ladies who wasn’t feeling well for a few minutes; it was good to see it wasn’t just about the tour but about helping others when necessary… I will suggest this tour to all of my friends if/when they are in the area. Thanks again!
Educational tour for a open mind
All I can say is, you will leave tour wanting to return with more individuals for the experience.
Excellent Historical Tour
This tour provides a deeper understanding of the slave experience in Charleston and how it influenced the development of Charleston as a city and economic powerhouse. I must for anyone wanting to learn about US History.
Family fun time’s BEST TOUR EVER!!
Our family reunion came ALL THE FROM CALIFORNIA to see if what we heard about Godrey was true and he is so soo much better than they said he was. We were all blown away. He gave so much knowledge. God has really worked him into an amazing tour guide. I will be back with more people. They must and will hear this man speak.

“Wish I could give it 10 stars!!”
5 of 5 ***** STARS Reviewed December 30
Seriously one of the BEST tours I have ever been on in my life! My husband and I were in Charleston for our anniversary and we ended our trip with this tour. Best decision EVER!! Godfrey was absolutely amazing – from the moment we met him, he made us feel like we’d been friends for years. His knowledge of the town and the history are mind boggling and his passion for what he is doing is something you rarely see these days. We learned so much on this tour about more than just slavery, but about God’s word as well. We love the fact that Godfrey uses the Bible to base his tours and information on – it is very refreshing to see someone standing so boldly for God nowadays! This is certainly a tour that we did not want to end and were very disappointed when our time was up because we didn’t want to leave. Godfrey’s passion and attitude are contagious and this tour is most definitely in my top 10 all time favorite things I’ve done on vacation. Yes, folks, its really that good!!

“Copeland Jarrett & Whitehead Family Reunion 2016”
5 of 5 ***** STARS July 26, 2016
My family visited Charleston for our family reunion and I wanted them to experience a Gullah Tour. Plans were discussed with another tour company but there were conflicts with the date. Alphonso Brown referred us to Godfrey Hill. It only took a 15 minute phone conversation and I knew we were in for a great learning experience. We had 44 family members and friends on 3 tours. I was impressed with the level of interest from my family and hoped that the tour would meet their expectations. I’m happy to report, there was an overwhelming response of satisfaction. Godfrey delivered a ton of facts and tied them to the Bible and Charleston’s commerce. When we returned to the hotel, many were sharing written notes and fact checking. I was so elated to know that this was a winner with my family, young and old. At the end of the reunion, I was asked, “how do we top this”? Thank you Godfrey and I look forward to another Gullah Tour.

“Don’t Expect the Ordinary ”
5 of 5***** STARS July 7, 2016
This Gullah history tour was but your ordinary history of the Africans in Charleston. Instead it draws on the guide’s knowledge of Gullah history and culture, much of it spiritual and biblical in nature. You definitely leave with eyes open to the rich history of this people and the injustice done at enslaving them. While some may prefer the textbook version of history this tour provides a deeper look. Enter with open minds and hearts and you will come away having learned something. Godfrey is warm, passionate and a wonderful guide,

Godfrey was a wealth of information who provided an excellent tour to my wife and I who were fortunate to be the only customers. The information he provided was intriguing to say the least. Definitely well worth the time and money and I would strongly recommend Godfrey and can’t wait for his book.
“the best inclusive tour in Charleston”

Godfrey is one of the only black qualified tourist guides in Charleston. He knew his info inside and out and then some. He was so informative about Gullah history with an incredibly beautiful twist to it all. It was a spiritual journey. What a pleasant surprise!!!! You can go on one of the WHITE poshy elite tours with a white guide who has their white prespective on Gullah and slavery or you can go on a truthful one. Thank you Godfrey

“SO interesting and unique”
5 of 5 ***** STARS November 21, 2016 via mobile
The whitewashed city of Charleston has a secret history that is fascinating. Godfrey has provided a wonderful option to the staid, history book tours regulated by local muckety mucks. Real history is often brutal and ugly and that makes its’ knowing all the more important!
