Food was good but way too crowded to enjoy self.

The cruise was nice, the food was tasty, but there were so many people crammed onto this boat that we could not sit our group together, and once we were seated, we could not move around the boat without bumping into people. The band would have been fun if we could have danced but like I said, we could barely move. The downstairs enclosure was extremely hot (very happy we were not seated there) and if it had rained, there would have been no place to move to to get out of the rain. This could have been a fun event and instead was just an overpriced boat ride.

Thoroughly enjoyed the informative harbour cruise, we were also lucky to see a large pod of dolphins.

The Carolina Belle was well equipped for people of all ages and the crew were friendly and courteous .

Thanks for making our last day in the Charleston area memorable!!!

Having a family member in the area for two years has been great, get to see a beautiful city with someone that knows their way around. Really enjoyed the tour, we were originally scheduled to go on Saturday, the boat was really full and everyone that approached at the same time as we were asked if they could go another time. We decided to do that since it was so full. Glad we did. We came back the next day and the boat was significantly less crowded and so much more enjoyable. Got to see dolphins swim at the bow of the ship, pretty cool! Thanks for showing off part of your beautiful city.

Harbor Tour Memorial Day Weekend 2010
Sat, May 29, 10   1:30 PM MarshaBrown Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
The tour was fun and interesting. Not a hot day and the breeze was nice especially if you were sitting on the top deck. Water was very pretty and calm with not too many birds flying over. Narration of the different sites/locations was short, very informative and too the point. Beautiful views of St Sullivians Island, Fort Sumpter, etc. from top of the boat but be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen. There was not a lot of folks during the 1:30 time slot which was good.

The driver we had at the plantation was great, he gave us a lot of history, he looked like john belushi.

Had a very enjoyable time

Our group of three (ages 50+) thoroughly enjoyed each of our tours (Harbour Tour, Carriage Tour thru historic Charleston, and the Boone Hall Plantation tour) and we are so glad we purchased the tours. Each event was filled with very informative tour guides on the history of what we were seeing, more than we could have learned on our own, I think. They made our experience that much more meaningful. Before we left the Charleston area, we determined that we are going to have to come back in the near future. I would most definitely encourage anyone, no matter the age or even physical restraints, to consider purchasing any or all of these tours. If there were more tours included in the packages offered, I would strongly consider those too.

We have taken the harbor cruise before and it was enjoyable. To link it with the Plantation tour for 29.95 was such a good price it was worth doing again. We also liked that we could split up the tours to different days and do the Plantation tour on our way home.

Great History

We went on the combo of the harbor tour and the carriage ride. Enjoyed the day and learned alot of history that we never knew. well worth the time and what a bargain if you do the combo. You can do it in one day or split it to different days.

We had a great tour, nice boat and good tour guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed what he was doing and loved Charleston. The ticket area was very nice and everyone very friendly. And the pre-tour picture was even pretty good!

Plantation & Harbour Tour - Great value
Sat, Feb 20, 10   3:30 PM calichic1117 Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I was extremely pleased with the Combo Tour. Boone Hall Plantation was beautiful, and the tours on the plantation were great. I will say I was disappointed with the fact that the home tour on the plantation only consisted of the ground floor and I was expecting a much older home. The home itself had been rebuilt a few times; so I suggest another home tour, if you are looking for a really old home with lots of colonial history. Overall, Boone Hall was worth visiting.

The Harbour Tour was great too! I suggest going on a day that is warm and not windy. The tour was very relaxing; a great way to get a bunch of history and with little to no walking necessary. It also provides a gorgeous view of Historic Charleston. In my opinion, a must-do in Charleston!

To sum it all up... Great Value! I was extremely pleased with the purchase!

Excellent job on both ends

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed both parts of this combination tour. It was a little chilly on the harbor tour but the crew on the boat did an excellent job. The captain's commentary on what we were seeing as we cruised was first rate. Our driver on the carriage part was just as good. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We have taken several carriage tours in Charleston but this one was by far the best we've been on.. I would highly recommend this package to anyone who wants to learn more about Charleston and its' history.

Engine Problems Day of Tour
Fri, Oct 9, 09   3:30 PM joar3068 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
The company called me the morning of our scheduled tour and let us know that there were engine problems and our tour was canceled. They offered to book us on another company's boat tour for that date (although at a different time). Luckily the alternate time worked into our schedule. We checked in at the second company and they had our names and payment. In spite of the cancellation, we enjoyed our tour on a separate tour boat and appreciated the original company's diligence to let us know first thing in the morning and then take care of the alternate booking.
