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.

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.

Great boat tour and fabulous Boone Plantation
Tue, Sep 29, 09   1:30 PM vwetheridge Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
If you've ever taken the boat tour in Savannah, you will be thrilled with this one. You actually see things. We even saw a dolphin up close. Got a great picture of it. Music, captain, and tour was fantastic.

Plan to spend several hours at the Boone Plantation. It's so much to see and so much history. You don't want to miss any part of it. Everyone was so nice, especially trolley driver. He was a hoot. Don't forget to visit the butterly pavillion. My daugther took beautiful pictures which we were able to frame. We spoke Gullah for several days after returning. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and go when it's not so hot so you can enjoy the gardens and all the outdoor activities.

My wife and I really enjoyed the package tour. The carrigage ride was the best. The young man conducting it was very informative and easy to understand and speak to.

The office staff was very helpful and friendly!

The harbor tour was good.

Wonderful Tour

We were 2 couples, all family & all over 60. The tour was spectacular. The narrator was extremely easy to understand & hear. (Several in our party have hearing loss.) His presentation of the narration was wonderful and the narrative was very informative and surprising detailed. We all came to Charleston in Jan. but the harbor tour was not running at that time so we made it a must -see for this trip and bought tickets in advance. Everyone in our party was delighted with the tour, the crew and the beautiful harbor sights. Of course, it was also a very lovely day and the views were spectacular. Thank you.

Although it was nice to spend some time on the water, the tour was terribly boring and quite crowded. The boat has few seats for passengers, forcing many people to stand for the 1 1/2 duration of the tour. The tour guide had a voice that would put anyone to sleep and did not seem at all excited about the places he was pointing out. I would not recommend this tour to future visitors.

Nice overview - very informative

These two tours provided a nice overview of Charleston and the harbor. We learned more about the city during these two tours than in the remaining stay.

The people at both locations were welcoming and well informed.

great trip to charleston
Wed, Jul 15, 09   3:30 PM debw1976 Female 50-59 Unspecified Other
We love Charleston and the carriage ride was a great way to see the side streets and beautiful structures that we would not have seen by car. Our tour guide was funny and a drama major in college. She made the carriage trip not just historical, but entertaining.

She even sang to us at the end of our tour!

The boat tour was a great way to see Charleston and especially the Fort. We did not care about going on the Fort tour, but wanted to see it up close. We went right by the Fort and did not have to get out of the boat!

I am usually not a carriage ride person, but highly suggest this tour.
