Having visited Charleston many times, we had a good basic knowledge of the city’s history and geography. But these two tours were very informative and we learned many new interesting things. Although different in scope, the bus tour and the harbor cruise complemented each other and made for a relaxing and pleasant experience. The bus tour was especially exceptional - the driver narrated the entire trip with both factual and anecdotal information.

This 1.5 hour cruise is covered, so the sun doesn’t bear down, but you still get the fresh breeze. We had Russell as a guide, and he provided detailed I formation the entire time. He also opened the floor for questions and was very accommodating. I highly recommend this to learn the history, architecture, and juicy stories of Charleston.

Roy gave us a great tour. I was amazed at all the awesome history Charleston has. We were very impressed with Charleston and the 90 minutes of information that Roy shared.

Great tour in a confortable air conditioned little bus. Wonderful guide. Really enjoyed it!

Wonderful! Ask for Steve the tour guide for the boat he is awesome!
