Architectural Tour of Historic Charleston
Alex_G, Sept 2023
It was a quick tour around the city. Took about 80-90 minutes. But this experience would only be entertaining to those who have an interest in architecture and architectural design since this city has been destroyed and rebuilt a handful of times by natural disasters.

Average Bus Tour
Susan_K, Aug 2023
The tour would have been so much better if we could have understood our guide and he actually stopped in front of the sights as he discussed their history or importance.
Nice way to see the city and gain some history
Barbara_C, July 2023
The tour was a great way to see several areas of the city, and gain some very interesting history. The tour guide/driver was knowledgeable and provided many details about the homes, businesses, military activity and overall history of Charleston.

Deborah_P, July 2023
Our guide Shaune was very knowledgeable although he admitted not being from Charleston, he's lived there for about 39 years. I liked travelling around the Citadel. What I liked most about the tour was the incorporation of African American history in the history of Charleston. I believe this is how it should be as it is American history.
Good bus tour
Donielle_F, July 2023
Lots of information and way to escape the heat while covering large section of the peninsula. The driver-guide, Benji, was very informative and friendly.
