Gives a quick glimpse of Charleston history
Sara_S
, Jun 2022
This tour was fast paced, but our group loved it. Our driver was amazing, she guided us and kept everyone on track. Charleston was busy and had lots of history. It was awesome to have a guide give hi- lights. We did the carriage ride, boat ride to Fort Sumpter and Boone Plantation. We loved it all. If you are looking for a more immersive experience, you need to stay a few days. If you want to get a day with variety, this one is for you. Just what we were looking for!

What a great day. Tour guide professional, friendly answered all questions. Gave extra details and made sure we were hydrated on a very hot humid day and made sure we knew where to go even walking us to each point. Highly recommend.

The horse and carriage...

The horse and carriage ride through Charleston and the history behind it . T fort Sumter your was as expected but not a favorite . The plantation was interesting seeing the slave quarters , the horse stable and the three rooms . I was hoping to see an original southern plantation and more than 3 rooms but still enjoyed it . Last but not least the day itself was very well planned and all the tour guides including the bus driver Wendy were great. It was a long day but very educational and enjoyable !

We enjoyed all activities but especially the carriage ride. We had an outstanding tour guide on the carriage, Nick. He had amazing facts regarding the history of Charleston and he had a good sense of humor making the ride very enjoyable. He was amazing!

Trip was exactly as described. Lots to see and experience in Charleston. Lunch as expected, just a box lunch but adequate for the meal. Would recommend for a day away from beech.

Brakes on the bus was horrible loud noise every time the brakes was applied . And please bring your own food, all they have is homemade ham and cheese on regular white bread in a ziplock stale bag of chips with no air , and a flat Pepsi and two cookies in a ziplock

Not bad trip
Dani_P

Carriage ride and the information on the history of the city It would of been nice to have a little more time to shop the market, but the carriage ride was enjoyable and very educational. We felt rushed to get from one location to the next location. The Fort Sumter was nice, and the premade lunch was a nice touch. Though a option of what type of lunch would of been a better consideration of those who have a food allergy or are vegetarian. The plantation was very historic and a blast to the past. Just having a bit more time would have been nice.

It was easy and efficient setting up the trip, the communication regarding where we would be picked up by the bus was good, the clear instructions/directions by Wendy the bus driver was appreciated, the knowledge and sense of humor of Richard the carriage driver were great, and everything ran perfectly on time. Can't ask for more!

Great trip; bring your own lunch
Dianna_G
, May 2022
Great trip; very well timed so that we did not feel rushed but also were able to get sufficient time at each attraction. The visit to Ft Sumter was most instructive and absolutely a feature of trip #7. Also, because we were one of the earlier carriage tours, the market wasn't as crowded as it is later in the day. The only negative is the box lunch that is provided; given the cost of the trip a nicer box lunch should be provided. No name turkey on white bread (think, wonder bread) and no name look-alike Oreo cookies doesn't cut it. I would recommend bringing your own lunch and snacks. However, other than the lunch, this is an excellent trip.

Nice introduction to a lovely town

Three friends had been to Charleston before but wanted to experience it again. Overall we had a good experience. We would have liked to see the battery and Rainbow Row but to be honest, these things were not in the trip description. The lunch was fresh but kind of mediocre. I would suggest a written itinerary with times or a text instead of verbal directions that may not be remembered correctly.
