Anything that makes it easier to select things to do and places to visit in a new city is worth its weight in gold. This pass did just that. There were plenty of choices and the user interface of the application was easy to navigate. We saw everything we wanted to enjoyed every minute of it. Just make sure you spend time deciding what you want to see and make reservations where required. Did the pass save us money? I don’t know. But what’s important is it saved us time!

Beautiful grounds and Gullah presentation were the highlights for us. There’s a lot more to do than we were able to squeeze into 3 hours. Interesting history and the only original slave houses still standing because they are brick. I recommend the outing.

It was a great tour, Watson our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was worried that it would be too long but it was just the right amount of time.

Great tour bus driver Scott who filled us up with lots of insight. The time spent on the Plantation was incredible. Highly recommend it.

Our driver (Vicky), waiting extra minutes for us, to allow us to complete a tour. Very thankful to her!!
