Genie Hufham, owner of Charlotte Crown Guides, started conducting tours in 1999. Charlotte Crown Guides was born in 2009 to ensure guests had a memorable experience in the Queen City and to provide quality hospitality education to front-line employees in the hospitality industry. Genie is a Charlotte native, volunteer coordinator for conventions, group tour guide, and co-developer and instructor of the Charlotte 101© course. If that weren't enough to qualify her as your guide, she's also a volunteer at the Visitor Info Center. Genie draws upon a variety of experiences to provide the "inside story" and local lore on her tours. Exemplifying southern hospitality, Genie is both fun and friendly – and your time with her will be one of the best parts of your visit!
We are honored to be the recipient of the 2011 Visit Charlotte Partner of the Year Award for Hospitality Services!
