It was a great experience. The drive was a little longer than expected cause we didn’t get back in time to do historic tour but that was ok because we had overbooked tours so we saw it anyway. The garden and home are beautiful but we needed bug spray for the mosquitoes. The tour guides were very good. Enjoyed it all.

Friendly and informative drivers. The day was well planned and we were able to see a lot in o relatively short amount of time. If you don’t have your own transportation in Charleston and want to see the Magnolia Plantation and a nice overview of the city, this is the perfect tour.

our guide was entertaining, articulate and full of knowledge on Charleston's history. She was a wonderful storyteller. Best tour yet! Our daughter said it was her favorite part of the trip. We will be back!
