I would definitely recommend this! I took my boyfriend for his Birthday and we had a great time. It was very relaxing just being on the water and all the beautiful sights just added so much more to it. Also, make sure you watch for the dolpins, I got to see one but my boyfriend saw more! I would also recommed getting there early so you get a good seat on the boat.

This was my 3rd trip to Charleston, 1st Harbor Tour. From the first inquiring phone call to the end of the tour everyone was very friendly and helpful. As luck would have it our 3:30 tour, the last of the day, was met with rain, but it definitely did not dampen the spirit of the crew- the tremendous amount of history committed to memory on the part of the captain, was shared with enthusiasm and a good sense of humor- which I am sure is not an easy feat day after day. Being out on the harbor definitely gives you a different perspective- of the citys' beautiful skyline, its' vulnerability and its' strengths. Had the sun been shining, views may have been "prettier", but I don't feel I missed anything and most definitely would highly recommend spending this 90 minutes of your day.

The tour was just the right length of time and I felt it covered a lot of ground in a good amount of time. The boat was clean and the guides were attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. I would highly recommend this tour for an overview of the Charleston harbor.

We enjoyed the tour. It was just long enough. The tour operator spoke pretty much 85% of the time, which was good and bad. We learned a lot and he pointed out things we wouldn't have known, but, it was loud. That's the only thing that was slightly annoying. His anecdotes and comedic tie-ins were great, though.

We got to see a lot that you obviously don't get to see from land. :) The tour around Fort Sumter was cool. I definitely got a better perspective of how the whole area surrounding Charleston is laid out. I think the best part of the trip was going under the Arthur Ravenal bridge twice. Got to see it up close and got some handy tidbits of information from the tour operator.

Beware - it is HOT on deck upstairs. Downstairs is enclosed with A/C, but it is still warm, not cold. So, dress comfortably and purchase some drinks on board.

We had a great time! Food line was incredibly long though. Had to eat after the rest of my party had already eaten because I was still in line.

The Harbor Tour was very well run, easy to be on and packed full of interesting information. The boat ride itself was comfortable and all safety measures were taken. It was informative, detailed, fun and interesting. The guide was funny and you could tell he loved what he did.

The Carriage Tour was great! You go directly to the barn, in downtown Charleston, where the animals are cared for to start and end the tour. The animals are very well cared for and the 'barn' is really clean. You can walk around and pet the animals if you like. The carriage itself was clean and well maintained. The ride was smooth and comfortable. Our guide was full of great information and could answer any questions we may have had beyond his excellent commentary. You see Charleston in a comfortable, close up, well paced way and hear interesting stories with lots of interesting facts. Our guide obviously loved what he does as well and was informative, fun and pleasant.

Very highly recommend both the harbor and carriage tours!!

As far as small entertainment for a weekday evening I thought it was wonderful! All of the folks were extremely pleasant and very good at their jobs. The boat was clean, and captained well. I just loved every minute of it, as did the other 3 in my party. I have already recommended it to all of my friends and won't hesitate to come again.

I went on the BBQ and Blues Cruise with no expectations and had a great time with my husband. The food was AWESOME, the band was good and the views from the boat were a great mini-sightseeing experience. Would definately recommend to anyone visiting Charleston for the first time as we were.

The harbor tour was great! The Captain was loaded with historical facts, and was very entertaining. The guide for the house tour at the plantation was enthusiastic and interesting. Enjoyed both very much, well worth the price.

First time in S. Carolina and it is a beautiful place with so much history.

This boat tour was very informative about the battle that took place at Ft. Sumpter and the surrounding area.
