We enjoyed both the city and harbor tours and found both guides to be informative. HOWEVER, the booking itself did not indicate the hour layover between the two activities. Everyone on the bus tour was taken by surprise (and not happily). Since no restaurants were nearby to grab lunch and no lobby available to wait, everyone was left to wait in the heat or perhaps go wait in the lobby of the Aquarium. Had we known, we would have packed a lunch. It really was inconsiderate to not include this information.

Having visited Charleston many times, we had a good basic knowledge of the city’s history and geography. But these two tours were very informative and we learned many new interesting things. Although different in scope, the bus tour and the harbor cruise complemented each other and made for a relaxing and pleasant experience. The bus tour was especially exceptional - the driver narrated the entire trip with both factual and anecdotal information.

Our guides was very informative. We learned a lot about Charleston that we didn't know. A very comfortable trip air conditioned and quite beautiful scenery outside. We took the combination historic Charleston tour with the boat harbour tour. Great way to see the sights get a idea on what to do after your tour. Highly recommended. Its definitely a must see and do while you are in Charleston. Mark R.
