This is the second time that we’ve taken out of town guests on the tour. Our guide Anthony was very friendly and a wealth of knowledge! I’ve lived in Charlotte for 13 years and learned/saw things on the tour that I had never known about our great city. Fantastic use of an afternoon with or without out of town guests!

Our tour guide was amazing! Although the tour was short it was detailed and showcased many great sites throughout the city. Wish we could have hopped off to take pictures but given Covid many places were not opened. Great experience if you wanted to see a lot on limited time.

Now is the time to go - very little traffic. The city is deserted. Tour focuses on buildings and interesting facts. I would have liked hearing about the historical context starting with why Charlotte has grown as it has (without the typical river). The guide was well versed on the city and surrounding area. My wife would have liked a paper map of the route as she is directionally challenged and has no idea where anything was.

Anthony was an amazing guide. He taught us a lot, and we had a lot of fun. It was fun for the whole family. I would take the tour all over again. Highly recommend. ***The parking should be updated on the website. It says to park in the garage near the Irish Pub, and that the pub validates. The pub is closed and the parking was $25 for a couple of hours. There’s a parking lot less then a block down that’s $10 for the day. Viator should update that for its future customers.

Thank you. We have let viator know about this parking change and are waiting on them to update.
