Well worth the money.

The tours give you a great overview of the area. We took the full trolley ride first and decided what we wanted to visit. Hopped back on the trolley and got off where we wanted to see more details or to shop, etc. The ghost tour was fun and not too scary. The actress was very good. We enjoyed the dinner cruise, food was good, well presented and plentiful and the river area is beautiful at night. Guides on all the tours were very knowledgable and very pleasant and courteous.

The harbor tour was enjoyable and relaxing, especially after the crowds and traffic in the historic district. The captain mentioned seafood restaurants on Shem Creek, across the bridge in Mt. Pleasant. We drove over there after the tour and we enjoyed a nice seafood dinner along with a great view of the shrimp boats and the water.

Lovely evening

If you love Blues music and good BBQ you will love this cruise. The Captain and crew were first rate, making us feel welcome and comfortable immediatly. Everything on board was clean and well organized. The catered BBQ buffet was excellant and there was plenty of everything so plan on seconds. The BBQ was very well prepared as well as the sides items. Loved the cole slaw and mac and cheese. The vessel was roomy, even though sold out we had plenty of room to move about the lower dining area and the upper deck where the reasonable cash bar was located. The band is first rate and professional, great vocals blended well with the tight instrmental performances. The cruise starts ON TIME so get there early. This was a great evening, good food, great music and a beautiful sunset cruise on Charleston Harbor. This cruise is an excellant value for the money. Don't miss it!

Very enjoyable experience

The crew gave us a warm welcome and the captain had relevant historical information that he shared with humorous asides. The 90 minute cruise went by very quickly. The chance to be on the water in the harbor for that length of time is a memorable experience. Do not miss the opportunity to take this historical cruise.

Very good and informative

We had just arrived in Charleston the previous day and had arranged to start our first full day with this tour. The tour was informative and we learned a lot about Charleston and it's historical past. We had been to the Fort across the river and this tour allowed us to learn more about the Civil War and other battles which have taken place here. The commentary was well informed and the style was easy to understand. I would recommend this tour to any visitor to Charleston.

Not right boat for band with large crowd
Thu, May 3, 12   7:00 PM sherrycoogle Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
All of us liked the BBQ but disappointed there was no dessert like banana pudding that is associated with Carolina BBQ. The boat was not large enough for everyone to enjoy the band on the top deck, it was very crowded and the band faced the back with a small area for dancing. For us non smokers there were no restrictions or smoking area designated and there were a few men smoking gross cigars which is offensive to non smokers. The speakers in the dining area caused the music to be distorted and there was no where to go just to chat with others if you didn't want to listen to music, it was too loud down stairs. There was not enough room on deck to accommodate everyone and was crowded. There were chairs but not enough space to put the chairs for everyone to sit on deck. We did enjoy our evening and the staff was very accommodating. Charleston was very beautiful in the evening and the view from the water was fabulous. It would have been helpful to have better signage leading the way to the boat.

boat ride and carriage ride
Fri, Apr 27, 12   1:30 PM chriskim370 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The boat ride was professionally done and very enjoyable The carriage ride was terrible Confusion on the tickets, had to wait to board in HOT STINKY barn. We had to wait in the hot sun out on the road for 30 minutes for permission to leave because too many carriages out at one time. So the service is over booking We are both professional business people and this was un excusable. We will never use the carriage rides of this particular one again and absolutely will not recommend to anyone . This is the difference about priority of making money versus concern of your customers . I should have asked for a refund but was so upset just went on our way

The tours made our trip more impressive

We considered another tour and called them with questions, got the answering machine, left our number and they called back 8 HOURS later!! In the meantime we booked with Zerve and mistakenly sent the email address for the etickets with one digit wrong. They promply called to let us know they couldn't send the tickets because it bounced back. Gave them the correct email and received the tickets. When we arrived everyone was so helpful. Took the harbor cruise one day and the carriage ride the next day. They were both awesome!! Both trips were relaxing and informative. We wanted to go back and take both trips again and we probably will someday. We all highly recommend these tours!

Great Tour
Mon, Apr 23, 12   11:30 AM Vpohan Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
We enjoyed both the Harbor Tour and Boone Hall Plantation. The check in was quick, parking was free. The guide on the Harbor tour kept us informed the whole time. The Boone Hall Plantation is a must see place. They provide several different options included in the same price. You can ride an open air vehicle around the plantation grounds. The house tour had a spokeswoman who was very knowledgeable about the history. The slave cabins had recorded information as well as exhibits in each. Great value for the money, highly recommend.

My husband and I have traveled all over the world, but decided on Charleston (had never been there) for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. We did all the "tourist" attractions. The Harbor Tour was entertaining as well as educational. The Captain can be thanked for that. We just had a delightful time, and we plan on going back someday. We will take the Harbor Tour again.
