Overall rating

4.7 / 5

What a great idea! I loved being able to set my own pace, linger over the sights that interested me and stroll quickly pass the others. The folksy accent of the narrator took a minute to accept, but it grew on me - and the interstitial music was a perfect scene-setter! Highly recommend - the price is right and you get a great introduction to the history of the place. I didn't take advantage of the "dig deeper" options, but it seems that they go more into detail for those who want it.

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.

Exciting way to explore the city! I look forward to listening again from home and checking another city on a new adventure!

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
