We were a little disappointed that we didn't go out in the harbor but would rather be safe. The guide was very helpful and watched us all very carefully. Good ride

Amazing tour of Charleston! Have done/enjoyed the other in town/carriage tours and was looking for something new and different to do with my father and kids. Recently did a powerboat tour in NYC and was hoping that Charleston offered something similar. This was even better!!! The boats were a BLAST and very easy to drive! The tour was informative as well and saw parts/perspective of Charleston for the first time even though we've been coming here for years. Highly recommend and will come back!
