Great view of the city!

The sunset was beautiful and the music was good. The food was nothing special. We waited until an hour into the two hour cruise and all the food was cold.

Good music, good food and great scenery!
Thu, Apr 30  7:00 PM Penniehs Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
It was really a nice experience. the music and commentary should be piped onto the top deck - on top are the best views but we couldn't hear the music and what was being described about Charleston up there. And it would be nice to get a little closer to the battery for better pictures. Overall, it was a fun evening and I would bring other guests on this harbor cruise.

Excellent Experience with Very Caring Tour Leaders
Thu, Apr 30  3:30 PM jdowdy Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a wonderful experience (my family and I). What really stood out was the fact that they actually showed tremendous care for us. My grandmother is handicap and we did not have a wheelchair for her that day and all she had was her walking stick. They saw her and immediately volunteered to bring her a wheelchair. They obviously were not required to do so, but went beyond their duty to make sure that she was well taken care of. The tour itself was very good as well, with a very informative and funny crew.

Harbour Cruse and City Buggy tour
Thu, Apr 30  1:30 PM Markflaherty Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We had a very nice time and informative view of Charleston. Tour guides were very good and we were lucky to have a great weather day. I would recommend to others just reserve your buggy ride in advance and it should say that highlighted on your website unless I missed it.

We had a good cruise. The crew was excellent and asked several trivia quiz questions that I missed. I'll have to go again to get them correct. That I missed. I'll have to go again to get them correct

Wonderful Tours
Sat, Apr 25  3:30 PM kboyle55 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The Harbor Tour was fantastic. Saw lots of dolphins as well as all the sights. The boat captain was very knowledgeable about all sites on the tour and I learned a lot about the history of the civil war.

The city tour was also a wonderful experience. I did learn that there were 3 zones and each tour is assigned to one by the city representatives. We got zone 1. Again the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. There is so much history in Charelston, it is hard to cover it all in just a two day trip.

The plantation tour was also fun. If you are tired of walking you can just take the coach tour around the plantation. That was a wonderful experience and it gave us a break from the 89 degree weather. The tour goes through a number of shady areas where the temperature is noticeably cooler.

Tour was not handicapped friendly
Sat, Apr 25  9:30 AM WendyStephen Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My husband and I were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary. I have limited walking ability due to Multiple Sclerosis. On several occasions when I asked about access for handicapped persons I was told I had to walk up a ramp. I explained my situation and was given confusing answers. After arriving in Charleston, my husband and I visited the dock to make sure we knew where to go. After looking at the "ramp", and inquiring about handicapped accessibility, , we were once again told I had to walk up the ramp. My heart was broken. We left Charleston the next morning, and never went on either tour. I wish someone would have told me the tour was not accessible to handicapped persons before they took my money.

A pleasant ride, but not a lot to see.
Fri, Apr 24  3:30 PM gfdahe Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Guide seemed to be uncertain at times and some of the info was incomplete, but it was a pleasant boat ride on a sunny day. A closer view of the Battery and a trip under the bridge would have been nice.

Great for First Time in Charleston
Fri, Apr 24  11:30 AM nlsperl Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Harbor Tour was very nice. Good detail on what you were seeing. Tip: Do not sit at the very back of boat - diesel fumes nauseating, Carriage ride was very enjoyable however we should have been told to go directly over to get our time slot after the boat ride. We took our time and had lunch THEN went to the red barn only to find out we had a hour wait before we could take our trip.

Great Time

My husband and I were visiting Charleston for the first time. We took this cruise to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. We had a great time. My husband doesn't dance, but having the live mucis to listen to while we were sailing was nice. We would definately do the cruise again if we are ever in Charleston.

Everything was great except the BBQ
Thu, Apr 23  7:00 PM Jmason81 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The band was awesome, fun and engaging. The views were incredible. The BBQ was not great. I love BBQ so I was disappointed in the quality. Maybe if you're not into BBQ it might be fine. I'd still recommend this tour, just don't expect to be blown away by the food.
