  • On Purpose is a well run operation that allowed our group to gain insights into Charleston's storied history while exploring the city on foot in an effort to complete the Holy City Wanderer scavenger hunt and win our Company Challenge. The technology was very user friendly and helped to improve the overall experience with fun challenges, some involving taking pictures and videos with our team. Definitely a memorable experience and one that I would recommend!
