Great 90 minute city tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and the bus was small enough to see all the sights. Picked up at the visitor center, another must go to in the city.

Well worth the price to get a good idea of the history of Charleston and to see all the key sites. The tour guide was very good, and covered history very well, in addition to explaining what is going on in the city currently.

Valerie was a knowledgeable, funny, friendly, resilient, and engaging tour bus driver. Very friendly and competent from check-in through the grand finale. We learned a lot of Charleston history, building history, streets, mansions, customs, and factoids. Well worth the price and the 90 minutes. If you get a chance to ride with Valerie on a city bus tour... jump on that bus and don't look back. You are in for a ride to remember.

The parking for this was challenging. The lot next to the visitors center said full-but the handicapped spaces were open, which we needed. Getting in required a lot of mobility to get to the limited mobility accesses. Once we were on the tour, the guide was very knowledgeable about the city currently and historically. There is a stop at the Battery to walk around and photograph the area. Now we know the city a little better and can plan our next visit better.

HUGE shout out to Rob for being a FANTASTIC guide! His knowledge was extensive and the carefully thought-out and properly enunciated verbiage, in a volume that could distinctly be heard by all on the bus, would have made my grandmother proud! Best trolley guide I've ever had the privilege of learning from!

I took two tours with two different companies within two days of each other. The first was with my son, who recently graduated from college. The other was with my daughter, also a fairly recent graduate. The second tour with Charleston City Bus Tour was very inferior to the first with Pineapple Tours. It lacked the energy and depth of historical knowledge that the tour with Pineapple Tours provided. The tour was also somewhat disjointed and didn't follow any grand arc of storytelling. Just a bunch of houses, names, and dates. Nothing was cohesive.

Great Tour! On time, our tour guide was knowledgeable of Charleston. I will book this shuttle service again in the future and will tell my family and friends. I was just a little puzzle that we had to choose between going to the Museum or tour a home, I thought I read the MUSEUM was a bonus, that us why we paid $32 per person.

Original plan was to take carriage ride tour but because of frequent pop-up showers so we did chose the Gray Line bus tour with Bob. Bob knew so much about the history of Charleston but spoke a little bit too fast and we could never get in a question before he was already onto next spot. Not bad tour but not what hoped for.

Should all do tour of Charleston but I kind of wish we tried the horse drawn carriage tour.
