Captain Dave was an excellent narrator and taught us so much about the history of Charleston and pointed out other places/things we might want to do during our stay. Seeing so many dolphins was a very unexpected plus! This tour is worth your time and money!

Tri-Combo Tour in Charleston, SC

My visiting sister and I enjoyed all three! The Harbor tour was fun and informative; we love water & history, so this was perfect. The carriage ride was great! Our guide, James, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. What can I say about Boone Hall except - don't miss it! Especially the slave history and the Gullah presentation!

Delightful Events

The four of us found the harbor tour quite informative and interesting, as we also did the carriage tour the next afternoon. The young woman who was our driver on the carriage tour included many interesting details about what we were seeing as she skillfully guided the horse.

We appreciated the fact that we could do the harbor tour one day and the carriage tour the next.

My husband and I had a great time on this harbor cruise. The crew, musicians, and other passengers were friendly and helpful. Barbecue was great. A new ice cream company also provided free ice cream. The young people there from that company were fun and friendly. Although I was not crazy about the ice cream I have to commend whoever does the hiring for that company because the young people there were friendly....and fun! I was not crazy about the ice cream...there were 3 flavors. One was too salty, one was too sweet, and the other was too tart.

I have never booked anything online or over the phone that went as smoothly as this did. Staff were friendly and courtious. Very knowledgable. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and it made it very memorable.

Highly recommend!

Harbor tour a disappointment~ Carriage ride fab!

The Harbor tour was a disappointment. The narrator was mediocre at best. You are so far from the actual highlights that it is hard to get a real feel for the places. I would skip this and go for the carriage ride.

We enjoyed all 3 tours

The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the tour of the house at Boone Hall. I guess we expected a longer tour with more rooms. Very friendly people throughout the 3 tours.

Awesome Adventure

We started with the Harbor Cruise and loved it. The guide was very fun and gave us a lot of col information. It was very fun watching the dolphins and pelicans. Then, we did a carriage ride through downtown which was the highlight of our trip. The homes were amazing and the guide was so fun. We will definitely do another one next time we are in town. The last of the three was the tour at Boone Planation. It was fun but I was a little disappointed with the home tour. We only got to see a very small portion of the estate. The best part of this activity was the storyteller who was so incredibly awesome. We also were touched by the slave stories and homes. What a sad part of our history.

Our adventure was amazing and we would highly recommend it to anyone. Charleston is a beautiful area with tons of history - we wish we had had more time to explore.

Weather was lousy - cold and rainy. Could not enjoy the band upstairs as it was too cold, windy and the water was rough. Food was good but bar was located upstairs so no one ventured up there to get drinks - we stayed with the water and ice tea provided below. If the weather had been nicer (and I know you cannot control that) it would have been enjoyable.

Our captain was very funny and the tour was extremely educational and beautiful. Even though it was windy, we still ventured up on the top deck for the beautiful sights. The view from below (in the warmth) was equally awesome.

It was a great tour. The captain gave a wonderful tour of the harbour with lots of historic tidbits. Beware of the lady trying to take your photo. They try to get $20 for them!

Took my two girls on this very educational trip that they both enjoyed.
