A great way to see historical sites in Charleston
Sat, Sep 18, 10   11:30 AM Shonnetra Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I enjoyed riding the Carolina Belle to tour the Charleston Harbor. It was great to see all the historical sites in Charleston and the narrator was great explaining everything we saw. I did not enjoy the people stepping over me and not saying excuse me. Thought that was rude but people will be people and I didn't let that ruin my experience.

Great Way to Experience Charleston

Seeing the historical sites of Charleston by both boat and carriage is a great introduction to a fabulous city. Very professional tours. Accommodated our family's tight schedule during one of their busiest weeks of the year. Both tours appealed to a wide age group - 29 to 61 yrs old.

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.

Inexpensive tickets for a hour 1/2 of an enjoyable boat tour around the Charleston harbor. I am from Charleston and has family visiting and they really enjoyed the tour and learned lots of the history of Charleston. I will recommend this boat tour to all my visitors

We took the Harbor Tour first and enjoyed it so much. The Captain was entertaining and provided a great deal of history without being boring. The crew was also very nice to us. The ship itself was great. The time aboard went by way too quickly. The carriage tour was next. We couldn't have been any luckier to have gotten anyone better to be our guide. He talked through the whole tour, pointing out interesting details and telling us stories that were so very interesting. This day was the highlight of our week long vacation. I would recommend both tours to anyone. Great people! Great tours!

Need better boat
Thu, Sep 19, 13   7:00 PM Shellyfoster Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The cruise had good music and great barbecue, however that was lost on the fact that the boat was not a dinner cruise boat. There were not enough seating in the eating area and definitely not enough room on the top deck to enjoy the cruise. This need s to be on a boat that is set up for dinner cruises and entertainment. Overall, we were disappointed with the experience.

Entertaining and fun!
Murder Mystery Cruise aboard the Carolina Queen
Fri, Jul 6, 12   8:00 PM Shelly524 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
It was a classic murder mystery set in the 1930's or of the premises is that we're aboard a boat that serves alcohol during the prohibition. The actors and actresses are friendly and do a great job of staying in character. As long as you don't go aboard expecting a broadway production, you'll have a great time. My husband and I went out during a recent visit to Charleston. There were no reviews about this production so we had no idea what to expect. Honestly if it weren't on a cruise and if we weren't on vacation looking for a way to spend the time, I'm not sure I'd have given it as high a rating. But the night air, serene evening landscape, and the energy/enthusiasm of the actors onboard made for a perfect night! Just a heads up - you might want to leave the small children (like under 9 or 10) at home....the adult jokes and the overdone southern accents would be hard for younger ears to understand anyway. I can tell you it was was money well spent for a date night. We had a blast.

Great Tours

The Harbor Cruise was very informative and the captain was very knowledgeable about the area. He was also very entertaining. The guide on the carriage tour also "knew his stuff". He made the tour very enjoyable.
