Carriage great! Harbor boat tour, not even close.

The carriage tour was awesome. The driver was very friendly, funny, and offered so much history and explanation of Charleston. There is so much beautiful architecture in the downtown area. Once off the carriage there was so much to choose from in the way of restaurants and shopping. A very pleasant experience. The harbor tour went only a short distance. There was very little to see other than Fort Sumpter and the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. The captain/narrator was very boring. There was nowhere to get something to eat or drink in the time we had to kill beforehand. There was nowhere to sit or even shade to stand in. The only positive to this was the breeze on the water on a very, very hot and humid day. I would never recommend this tour.

Way too crowded

I was really disappointed in the Harbor Tour portion of this. We were in line over half an hour early, maybe 15 people ahead of us. All the sudden a large group of over 50 was allowed to arrive and board in front of those who had been waiting. By the time that we were finally allowed to board there were no seats. Clearly there were not enough. We were forced to stand for the entire trip.

Boat vs carriage
Sun, Sep 7  3:30 PM KarenBetts Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The boat your was great, the carriage ride guide was a little obsessed with the local foliage and not enough on structure. No options to take photos! No trip to the Battery on your, rainbow road either.

Must See.

We were on the fence whether to take the harbor tour because we only had one day in Charleston. We are now so glad we took the time as it turned out to be one of the highlights of our month-long vacation.

Great tour but over crowded.
Sun, Aug 31  11:30 AM Carmenapr Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We took the cruise and the boat was over crowed, people don;t have even where to sit to enjoy the cruise. The history part was great. I know is business, but they didn't take in consideration how comfortable people will be in a pay tour.

Who knew how beneficial we were to the slaves?
Sat, Aug 30  3:30 PM DrFrito Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I just never realized how lucky the slaves were that we owned them. According to the guides at the plantation, the slaves really didn't have it all that bad. They _only_ worked about 10 hrs a day then the rest of the time was their own and they could do as they wished. Their living quarters are surrounded by beautiful trees and lush grassy lawns. They only got whipped if they tried to run away or refused to work hard enough. What a crock. That plantation was a horrible place to visit because of all the rhetoric. Then we 'signed' up for the tour of the mansion and the tour guide kept asking if we had any questions, when we asked she said she didn't know and was pretty rude toward some of the guests. If you wanted the 'wagon' ride instead of signing up for it, you just had to watch for one and hurry before the rest of the people ran over there. It was a mess. We just ended up leaving, oh, and when following the exit signs the gate was locked up so we had to drive all the way back to the front and leave that way. All in all, really still a racist attitude, disorganized, and not very pleasant to visit. The Captain of the boat was great. Friendly and Funny. It was a nice little tour and informative. It helped us figure out what we wanted to see while there. The staff weren't so friendly, but they were pretty busy trying to work the snack bar. Overall this was a good idea. The buggy ride was out last thing to do before heading out of town. It was really hot but since we got there semi early, we didn't have to wait long. The coachman was nice and had his script memorized well. Parking was ~7.00 if I remember right. There were a few other horse and buggy companies crammed right there together but this one seemed much nicer and everyone was really friendly. It wasn't totally what I had in mind for a horse and buggy ride as there were something like 10 of us on there. I was hoping for a bit smaller group. This makes it a touristy ride around downtown instead of a nice more romantic type ride. You can rent a private buggy but I didn't check into that part. I never once heard them asking for tips here. I still think it was a great idea to purchase the combo tickets. We really had no idea what we were going to do so this was a big help. I just think it would be better choosing a different combo.
