This is the best way to see Charlotte - from the historic areas with beautiful homes to the up & coming downtown developments with amazing modern architecture that still captures the history & beauty of historic Charlotte.

I initially contacted QCT via it's web site and was directed to leave my e-mail address and I would be contacted. Sure enough, I was contacted but was asked to sign up for all kinds of sales pitches. Needless to say I was very frustrated by the time "unsubscribed." Shortly after, I was sent an application for the tour through... More

Was contracted to do a tour for our family reunion. They had an issue with the bus vendor and therefore we never had the tour. We were notified 15 minutes before the tour was to start that there "may" be a delay. Would stay far, far, far away.
