I needed a rickshaw to get from upper king to east bay street, so called the company and they had a rickshaw at my location in five minutes. It was fairly priced, and a great solution.

Day or night, fast service and reasonable prices. The drivers are skilled and personable. Highly recommend this company over the other pedal cab/taxi options.

We called from our restaurant just like we would have called a cab, and they were there within minutes, despite it being 1030 at night. Out driver offered us a blanket and had us back to our hotel before we knew it!

Spotted a bike near the drop point from the water taxi. Young guy said he was trying to keep cool but the market was 8 blocks down. Gave us directions but said he was on break. Called later for rates, then when we got done shopping and asked for a ride back to the port, the rates had gone up.

We used this company for 5 days in Charleston every day! If we were out walking somewhere and needed a ride to dinner or back to the hotel or from dinner to the hotel or anywhere we would call and they would come and get us. Highly recommend!

Mother booked a day. There were all of these fiberglass turtles painted and placed all over town. Mother wanted to see them all. This was a copy of what had been done with cows in Dublin, or was it Chicago? Anyway Mother is now 84 years old. She doesn't walk all that well. Charleston Rickshaw is a blessing to both... More

My Mom and I had walked all over Charleston in blistering heat and humidity. After stopping for a Gelato, we just could not walk anymore so we called the rickshaw company and they took us back to our Inn. Felt so sorry for the poor guy having to peddle in this heat - way to go guys!

Someone pedaling you around town??? Charleston is a walkable city. Those who need a lift can take a free trolley that the city provides.

We decided to try the Rickshaw to get back to our hotel. The driver was very nice and told us some good restaurants to try while he was pedaling the bike. This is a fun and interesting way to get around Charleston.
