Highly recommend getting the pass. We went to Fort Sumter, Charleston Harbor, and the carriage ride. For the standard features we did Rhet House, Historical Society, Charleston museum, slave mart museum, provost dungeon.

The tour guide provided details you can’t learn from reading signs and scanning the web. We got a great deep dive into this city’s history and walked away with a deeper appreciation for Charleston.

This was one of the best walking tour we ever had. Guide was very knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of Charleston.

Very easy to use, no issues with vendors, got into all the standard and used the 2 premium without a problem.

Excellent value for money and convenience of reserving through type app Definitely recommend
