Very nice and comfortable tour of the city of Charleston, as well as informative, great tour guide! As romantic as the horse carriages are, I preferred this tour that leaves from the visitor center which has a nice exhibit of history too. Be sure to ride the free city shuttles to return to sites if more time is desired and walk through the college if charleston campus, so picturesque!!!

We wanted to see some of Charleston but I was having foot issues. This tour was the perfect answer to see some of the architecture and neighborhoods that make up this wonderful city. Our guide was funny and informative. She was very knowledgeable and pointed out many hidden gems we would have otherwise missed. The bus itself was clean and comfortable.

For the most part, the tour was good. Our guide wore a mask (ridiculous) and talked very fast, so it was almost impossible to understand him. If we REALLY concentrated we could make out some of what he was saying and try to piece together what he was saying with what we were seeing. But by that time, we were far beyond being able to see the point of interest.
