Well worth it and very informative!

My wife, another couple, and I took this tour on a beautiful day in November. The crew was very friendly and informative. We saw all of the major points of interest in the harbor. At each point, there was a nice amount of detail provided. Not too much, just enough to get the highlights. The price was perfectly fair for a nice, 90 minute tour.

Looking forward to doing it again

We thoroughly enjoyed this combo harobor and carriage tour. It was so easy to order the tickets online and the information provided from directions to what to wear was very much appreciated. It made it all very easy. Other than the hot temperature - which was totally seasonal - each event was great fun. The captain and crew for the Harbor Tour and the guide for the Carriage Ride did a wonderful job of involving their travelers and providing the history in an enjoyable and memorable way. We live three hours away and are already planning when we can come back to enjoy all of this again.

Very enjoyable experience

The crew gave us a warm welcome and the captain had relevant historical information that he shared with humorous asides. The 90 minute cruise went by very quickly. The chance to be on the water in the harbor for that length of time is a memorable experience. Do not miss the opportunity to take this historical cruise.

Our day trip to Charleston was great. I took my two girls on the ferry tour where we saw Fort Sumter, James Island and even dolphins in the water. Then, we took a horse drawn carriage ride around the city. Both activities were fun and educational and I would highly recommend it!

This event was one of the highlights of our trip to Charleston. My husband, sister and kids (12 and 13) loved the music and food. Watching dolphins swimming with the twinkling lights along the waterfront in the background was breathtaking. Thanks for a memorable experience!

Harbour and Carriage tours
Fri, Oct 2, 09   11:30 AM ssturner Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My husband and I went on the Harbour tour and then the Carriage tour. I was thrilled when on the harbour tour, we saw several dophins swimming near us! I especially enjoyed the carriage tour, because we got to see the old houses up close. Would actually have enjoyed this more if it had been longer! Think this is a great way to see the historic district, much better than if we had been in our car.

It was a pleasant trip. The captain's voice and sense of humor was enjoyable. The trip started on time. I learned a lot of trivia that my husband had to listen to the rest of our trip.

The Captain of the boat was very friendly, and very informative about the sights that we saw - Fort Sumter, USS Yorktown, the Ravenel Bridge how it was built, & all the features regarding the colunms & the bridge. We did see a few doplins around the boat. Just be sure and take your sunscreen.

The Carriage ride was fun, saw older part of Charleston, market street.

dual tour gets a 50/90

The combination package looked like an attractive way to get a good taste of the Charleston area. We took the harbour tour portion first, and I was some what disappointed. Not sure what I expected, but since the fort seemed to be the biggest element of the tour, I would have like to have sailed around it and heard more details of the fort and the battle.

The plantation tour was fantastic. The house tour was very informative even if we were limited to the first floor (the 2nd are actual living quarters for the residents of the home). Everything offered should be experienced, the show, the carriage tour and slave quarters in addition to the house tour to get the full effect. Leave 3-4 hours, and bring plenty of film!

Band was too much
Sun, Jul 4, 10   8:00 PM ssh2229 Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
the band was too big for the deck not allowing room for more people to be up top and watching the fireworks.....piped music would have been great.

I was very disappointed that star spangled banner wasnt played during fireworks or any patriotic music.

Other than that the event was good.
