Had a great time on this trip. Enjoyed the group and the ship. Food was good, but I should have gotten in line sooner.

We were looking to take a boat tour of Charleston Harbor. So glad we chose this one! Captain Andy was a great narrator. Told us about everything we were seeing around the harbor. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

It was a nice ride, the captain was informative and funny. The snack bar was super expensive but I guess that was to be expected. We will most likely tour with them again.

You can do the visits over 2 days. We did just that. By the time we arrived at Boone Hall Plantation, the person at the entrance suggested returning the next day to have adequate time to tour. We did just that.
