Signed up a group from our school for what we believed was Queen City BIKE Tour NOT the driving tour. When discrepancy was discovered 48 hours before tour, owner was unwilling to work with us to resolve the issue despite having had repeated conversations with us about what we understood was the BIKE tour. Owner of this company said NO... 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.

Boy, did i learn a lot!!! Jay was a great tour guide showing us old and new Charlotte, and everything in between. He's quite the historian, filled with all sorts of information that he easily and entertainingly conveyed. This type of tour is a great way to learn about the area!! Would highly recommend...

My daughter-in-law and I (there's no "Who did you go with?" category for just family) went on the city tour and we were both glad we did. I've lived in Charlotte for almost 15 years and still learned a lot of new things about the city. Jay dd a wonderful job of telling us the history of the city as... More

We booked a tour for a group of five and I found great coupons on the local merchant site. I was instructed that I would receive a txt msg with directions, which did not happen (even after multiple calls); finally received an email (again after multiple calls) with the exact same info that's on the web site - not sure...

We were stranded in Uptown during the tours scheduled "25 minute restroom break". About 15 minutes into the break we (me & 5 elderly women) were called and told the tour wouldn't be finishing the tour. We were told to find our own way back to our car (that was over 5 miles away) with NO offer from the company... More

We have been successfully conducting professionally guided tours of Charlotte, NC, since 1993, and have maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for the past several years. Unfortunately, unavoidable events do occur as with all businesses. We were able to complete 1/2 of this daily tour before being advised by a certified mechanic that continuing would result in...

Our guide was a retired vet who's personality is fun and nice and adds a southern flair. He did have to refer to notes and text sometimes, but we knew he wasn't just pulling this history out of thin air. The tour was part riding in a minivan and part walking, and the van was all decorated inside with Halloween... More

I attempted to book a tour with this so called tour company using a groupon special I had purchased. When I told their representative on the phone I was using a groupon he got upset telling me to read the instructions on the groupon and hung up on me. I called back to find out how I could be so...

This customer did not follow the "written" instructions that are clearly printed on his Groupon (50% OFF) which clearly states that Groupon (50% OFF) reservations are to be made via email. Unfortunately he will not be able to enjoy the best daily tour of Charlotte, NC. More

We booked an afternoon tour for the day we arrived in Charlotte and were picked up on time from our hotel.
