    Horrible bus ride to Charleston and lunch
    Belinda_T, May 2022
    Brakes on the bus was horrible loud noise every time the brakes was applied . And please bring your own food, all they have is homemade ham and cheese on regular white bread in a ziplock stale bag of chips with no air , and a flat Pepsi and two cookies in a ziplock
    Awesome day and learned a little American history!
    Louise_S, May 2022
    Enjoy Charleston and the Boon Plantation! Learned a little American history! We will be back to spend more time in Charleston! Au revoir! A la prochaine!
    Not bad trip
    Dani_P, May 2022
    Carriage ride and the information on the history of the city It would of been nice to have a little more time to shop the market, but the carriage ride was enjoyable and very educational. We felt rushed to get from one location to the next location. The Fort Sumter was nice, and the premade lunch was a nice touch. Though a option of what type of lunch would of been a better consideration of those who have a food allergy or are vegetarian. The plantation was very historic and a blast to the past. Just having a bit more time would have been nice.
    Trip from Myrtle Beach to Charleston
    Leland_S, May 2022
    Our trip to Charleston from Myrtle Beach was enjoyable and well organized. Our bus driver, Wayne, picked us up promptly at the designated time and made sure we knew where to go for our tours.
    The history of Charleston...
    Brandon_B, May 2022
    The history of Charleston was amazing. The carriage ride was great and full of information, as was the boone plantation and fort sumter.
    Great Day Trip
    Bill_W, May 2022
    It was easy and efficient setting up the trip, the communication regarding where we would be picked up by the bus was good, the clear instructions/directions by Wendy the bus driver was appreciated, the knowledge and sense of humor of Richard the carriage driver were great, and everything ran perfectly on time. Can't ask for more!
    Great trip; bring your own lunch
    Dianna_G, May 2022
    Great trip; very well timed so that we did not feel rushed but also were able to get sufficient time at each attraction. The visit to Ft Sumter was most instructive and absolutely a feature of trip #7. Also, because we were one of the earlier carriage tours, the market wasn't as crowded as it is later in the day. The only negative is the box lunch that is provided; given the cost of the trip a nicer box lunch should be provided. No name turkey on white bread (think, wonder bread) and no name look-alike Oreo cookies doesn't cut it. I would recommend bringing your own lunch and snacks. However, other than the lunch, this is an excellent trip.
    A day of memories
    Jeannie_K, May 2022
    What a GREAT day trip!! The Horse carriage ride and guide were excellent. The trip to Fort Sumter was very good and Boone Plantation was beautiful and the people were so sweet.
    Nice introduction to a lovely town
    pattytjohnson, Apr 2022
    Three friends had been to Charleston before but wanted to experience it again. Overall we had a good experience. We would have liked to see the battery and Rainbow Row but to be honest, these things were not in the trip description. The lunch was fresh but kind of mediocre. I would suggest a written itinerary with times or a text instead of verbal directions that may not be remembered correctly.
    Great day trip
    Deborah_T, Apr 2022
    This was a great day trip that my husband and I really enjoyed this is our first time being in the state of South Carolina.
