An outstanding view of things we have heard about

The homes, the fort, the layout of the shore all made this an outstanding tour. We would recommend it to anyone who visits Charleston.

Murder Mystery Cruise aboard the Carolina Queen

The atmosphere was charged with excitement as soon as we were quizzed on the dock. My lovely wife and I enjoyed the cast, the riverboat, Charleston harbor and the fellow passengers. With the cast being interactive my wife and I actually felt like we were part of the entertainment. We would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to fill their night with a memorable experience. Thanks for the memories!

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 Boone Hall plantation was my wifes favorite. The house tour was awesome. We could actually go into the rooms instead of looking from behind velvet ropes. We were a little disappointed that we couldn't tour the second floor. Ground tour was equally impresstive. Very knowledable and friendly captain and staff on the harbor cruize. I liked that the captain took the time to come and talk with all the people aboard. The carriage ride was fun and informative. Great way to see and learn about Charleston before taking off on our own.

Zerve was great to work with - Tours were OK

I was doing both the harbor tour and the carriage ride and had requested a schedule that wouldn't work (not enough time between activities). A rep from Zerve called me within 30 mins, told me of the issue, and gave me an alternate schedule that worked out perfect. The tours were OK, nothing makes one company much better than the other - they all use the same tour routes that are dictated by the city. What makes the difference between the various companies is the driver/tour guide and how well they know the area and the history. I've been on 3 different carriage tours in Charleston and this was probably the least engaging tour. The tour was technically accurate and interesting, but the guide was not a native of the area (fairly recent transplant) and he didn't have the pride and depth of stories that the other tours I've been on had. Listening to a native Charlestonian talk about their city makes the tour much better.

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!

I suggested this cruise to a couple of my coworkers, and along with our wives and girlfriends, had a great way to hang out and start the weekend. Great grub and good friends.

Just ok

The tour was ok. The boat was clean and certainly safe and seaworthy, but it was very crowded and hard to find a seat with a decent view topside. The lower deck had more room but was windowed off so you felt disconnected from the surroundings (the a/c would definitely be a plus in summer months).

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.

Great History

The tour was very interesting as I enjoy the history of the areas we visit. The tour guide broke up the narration from time to time with fun little trivia and a prize at the snack bar for whoever answered first. Al in all a enjoyable tour.
