  • This was so much fun as the captain added humor into the historic facts. Beautiful and captivating.

  • This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was informative and entertaining. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Charleston.

  • Unfortunately, we had very little time in Charleston so we took the Carriage Historic Tour in the morning, and the Harbor of History Tour in the afternoon. Both were outstanding and we highly recommend them- particularly to people who have very limited time to visit the area.

  • The Charleston Harbor of History Tour was a wonderful and relaxing time touring the harbor. The views of the forts and
    different historical locations were awesome. The boat was nice with refreshments and perfect viewing areas.
    A great way to spend a day out on the water.

  • Enjoyable trip through the harbor out for a close look at Fort Sumter and back through the Cooper River side of the Harbor. All the Islands and many structures were pointed out along with historical and contemporary information. The captain was the narrator and he did a very good job. He came across as sincere, engaged, and humorous despite the many times he must have done the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

  • The tour was excellent and very well organized. Would recommend to my friends. Thanks for the opportunity to explore Charlestone.

  • Great views of the city we wouldn't otherwise have seen. Good narration.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Amy the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately she was easy to get off track. We spent too much time looking at houses. Enjoyed the talk about flowers but she would spend too much time on flowers and trees. We were supposed to go to the market as outlined in brochure. We didn't go.

  • a little cheesy to be honest- a lot of the harbour is not that interesting to be honest- was ok
