What people are saying about Mount Pleasant

Very nice and comfortable tour of the city of Charleston, as well as informative, great tour guide! As romantic as the horse carriages are, I preferred this tour that leaves from the visitor center which has a nice exhibit of history too. Be sure to ride the free city shuttles to return to sites if more time is desired and walk through the college if charleston campus, so picturesque!!!

Our guide was very informative and a great story teller. Took us to some neighborhoods I had not seen before...we had a great time.

Our guide was so wonderful! Everyone in our group really enjoyed everything he had to share. Lucky we had great weather too.

The ease on getting on board. The ride was smooth that even my husband who doesn’t like cruises, felt comfortable.

Tour guide had a good knowledge of the Charleston area and presented it in a very humorous way.
