Fun and informative tour
Sat, Jul 18  3:30 PM Barbara427 Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I have back problems and cannot walk for long. This tour let me see historical locations in and around Charleston without having to walk long distances. The crew members are very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very relaxing to feel the ocean breeze and the gentle swaying of the boat, while our guide gave us an interesting background to each historical area we passed. He presented the information in a way that was not boring at all. I highly recommend this tour.

My family and I enjoyed this boat tour. Tickets were reasonably priced. I would suggest ordering your tickets online. The captain gave lots of information on the local sights and history.

Harbour tour was an excellent. Plantation tour was good, probably would have been better had the day not been so hot.

Normally I avoid organized tours like the dentist, not my thing. We chose the earliest available cruise and I was pleasantly surprised . The captain was engaging and had interesting stories and facts about the city. The crew was pleasant and I would suggest to friends and family.

Harbor Tour and Carriage Ride
Fri, Jul 17  3:30 PM Dryerfamily Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The Charleston Harbor Tour was excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgable and humorous. We saw many sights in the harbor and they were explained in detail as well as given the history of many sites. We even saw some dolphins. The boarding on the ship was timely and our tour was very thorough.

The Carriage ride was also very nice. Our tour guide was very fun to listen to and he gave a lot of background on the sites we saw. We had to wait a little while for the carriage ride as it is a first-come, first-serve activity, but we were able to stroll around the city market while we waited. Our tour guide engaged the passengers and asked us questions and let us guess the answers. It was a very pleasant, relaxing way to start the day.

Definetly Recommend

We enjoyed all three parts of the combo-it would be hard to say which we enjoyed more. The carriage ride was wonderful because of the vast history and information that the guide shared about almost every structure, home, etc. She knew everything about everything. It was great. The harbor tour was very enjoyable with the many dolphins we saw and the refreshments available on board. The afternoon we spent at the Boone Plantation was one well spent. Again, the guides added so much with their knowledge and interesting facts. We felt, with the tri-combo tour, we had gotten a well-rounded look at Charleston and the area. We would strongly recommend this tour to everyone. The free parking that was available for the carriage ride was a nice added bonus.

Short, sweet, and informative
Mon, Jul 13  1:30 PM hannahgrot Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
When booking this tour, I was worried that the boat may be too crowded and that my sister and I would have a difficult time finding a comfortable place we could sit and still see, but that was not the case at all. While the boat is large and can hold a fair number, there is plenty of space and a good view from everywhere. The captain/tour guide was very entertaining with his dry humor as well as extremely informative. My sister and I were very happy we had decided to add this tour to our short visit of Charleston.

Good tour but not for Senior Citizens.
Sat, Jul 11  6:00 PM kklaaren Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I enjoyed the boat tour, very informative. The only problem we had, we were traveling with 2 Senior Citizens and it was not a good experience for them. Not really Senior Citizen friendly, no wheelchair ramp.

It was also 100 degrees out and they had no ice for the drinks @ $6.50 a drink, I want ice!

On a recent trip to Charleston, SC we purchased a package from zerve. It was a great value. I wish the directions for redeeming and scheduling were a little clearer.
