90 Minutes of History and Fun

Took our grandchildren on this tour which gave the history of the Charleston Harbor. Informative and fun. Of course, the grandkids especially liked the echo demonstration under the bridge. I would recommend this to someone who has very little time to spend and would like a general understanding about Charleston, its roots, heritage and history.

a little too long

I felt like the harbor tour was a little too long, and didn't include many "fun" facts about the city. The best part was seeing the dolphins as we left the dock. We did enjoy the carriage ride a little better.

Great experience all the way around!

I purchased the Tri-Combo tour on line for my out of state vacation and It was everything I hoped it would be. There were clear directions to the Maritime Center for the harbor tour and detailed instructions and explanations of the other 2 tours. Upon arrival at the Maritime Center for the harbour tour the office personnel were efficient and located my reservation with no difficulty and provided tickets for the remainder 2 tours. At the subsequent carriage and plantation tours the respective personnel were familiar with my tickets and it almost seemed like I received perferred treatment because I had pre-purchased with Zerve. And all of the tours were fun, informative and narrated by very knowledgeabe tour guides. I would highly recommend both the combo tour package and Zerve as a means to make the reservation process easy, efficient and all in all a very pleasant experience.

Wonderful Day for everyone

We all enjoyed the tour. My girls aged 7 and 5 loved the boat trip. It was the perfect amount of time for them and they were not bored at all. The tour of The Boone Plantation we also loved and my girls were able to get a history lesson as well. A lovely day enjoyed by all and something for everyone.

It was nice to ride the boat around the harbor as the captain shared interesting tidbits about Charleston and the local wildlife. Different from other Charleston experiences.

sunset blues cruise lived up to its name. It was at sunset, not too hot or windy. We sat right in front of the band and it wasn't too loud. Food was good, but a small dessert would have been nice. Just pulled pork,buns chicken, mac and cheese and cole slaw. There was a variety of toppings for the pulled pork. The wine serving was a bit small, so I'd probably go for mixed drinks or beer.

Couldn't have asked for anything more

We had a group of 12 and all of us had a blast. The crew had the food ready for us when we got on the boat so that we could eat before the cruise started and didn't miss out on seeing the beautiful city of Charleton from the water. Most of us were ocals but some were from out of town and we all enjoyed our time. The crew and especially the Bartenders were very friendly! Just an FYI, the tickets say the bar is cash only but they do take credit cards. We will definitely go back!

This tour was loaded with info about the area and several noteable characters. I really enjoyed a close up look at the bridge.

Only criticism is the lack of transportation from one venue to another. Would have been nice to have that taken care of us as a package

Informative Interesting Tour!
Sun, Jun 1, 14   9:30 AM Holly816 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We planned to take a Sunday 9:30 tour but the boat had mechanical problems. We hung around for the 11:30 tour but it was a no-go also; and they were not sure about the 1:30. We left and decided to return on Wednesday 6/4. We arrived around 9:15, boarded the boat, and off we went with 12 other people! We really had the boat to ourselves. The weather was great. The tour was fabulous. The narrator told us so much information, both historical, and interesting. We cruised by the city, Battery Park, the cruise ship area, the forts, the aircraft carrier, the big bridge, & the container ship areas. The captain was sure to point out dolphins and other sea life. It was a very enjoyable 90 minute tour. We did this as a combo tour with Boone Hall Plantation. Boone Hall was okay. Only saw a few rooms on the first floor. The historic talk by the Slave Cabins was excellent. We did not go on the tram ride. I would recommend these tours, especially the harbour tour. We took a carriage ride/tour last year. It was wonderful.
