The day we had our tickets, it rained all day. Two of our activities were water ones. Even though it rained, we enjoyed our trip to Ft Sumter and the Charleston Harbor Tour. The staff made our adventure comfortable, keeping us dry for the most part. The staff welcomed us and made us feel like they were truly glad we were visiting with them. My husband and I would book through Your Guide again. The only difference we would make is purchase at least a two day pass. The larger attractions do not give you enough time to see/do the other ones in the same day.

We really enjoyed our tour combo. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. The bus was comfortable and easy to see out of. We saw all the major historical areas of the city. The museum was absolutely amazing! We spent 2 1/2 hours looking at all of the displays. Definitely worth your time and money to do this combo.

Very relaxing, also a terrific activity to get a cool breeze. Captain has been in the area and knew lots of info..(this was the Schooner Sail) The carriage ride was fun, our tourguide very personable. During August, we recommend the early evening when it’s a bit cooler.

I do not recommend taking the fort sumpter tour and the harbor tour. They are about the same as far as Information. I enjoyed the harbor tour the most. We loved Boone hall plantation!

Enjoyed the bus tour of Charleston. Wish we had signed up for the boat tour, but got onto the Fort Sumter tour last minute. That was very interesting.
