What people are saying about Mount Pleasant

We loved everything about this full day tour! The only thing we wish was different is we wish we had more time at the plantation so we could do all the tours and hear all of the history and the market to shop. But we did get to do and see a lot in one day! The guide Bob was awesome!

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.

Had a great time. Enjoyed seeing Charleston in one day. Wish we had more time to see everything. Driver was great!

The driver was excellent as well as all the activities on the tour.

Excellent way to see the city and learn additional history.
