After walking all day in 90 degree heat across a lot of Charleston, have one of these gals available with the rickshaw was a real relief. The cost was about the same as a taxi we took a couple days before. Do it !

We used the rickshaw service to ride through a hot muggy night (typical for Charleston in August) when we dressed up for a nice dinner at Circa 1886 (see separate review). Our plan was to walk off dinner by hoofing it back to our lovely B&B - John Rutledge House (see separate review). However, simple as sitting there riding in... More

Friendly and knowledgeable drivers, prompt courteous service, reasonable. After arriving to town taking a ride on one these quickly made its way to the top of my to-do list. A most enjoyable way to arrive for dinner reservations as we did and an even better way to take in the city sights. Without this service I would have missed much... More

On a hot, humid summer day in Charleston, these folks were our go-to transportation providers. Ask for Faith or Sid. They gave us fast, friendly, entertaining service around town. We called ahead twice, and at the appointed time, they were there at the hotel waiting for us. Can't say enough nice things about these bike-riding fanatics. They made our trip... More

I was walking all day touring Charleston and noticed this companies rickshaws many times during the day. I was staying north of Calhoun at the Hampton Inn and the walk all the way down to Battery Park was quite a hike in the mid day sun. A rickshaw ride was just the ting I needed and they were nearby near... More

The ride was safe, fast and very polite. I can't believe he took all three of us from downtown to Mother Emmanuel Church. It was worth $5.50 a person.

We were in town for the 4th of July and decided to take it easy and catch a ride on the way back to our hotel. Our driver's name was BUD and he was great! We got a feel of where we were in the city and got some quality entertainment to go with it. I would highly recommend this... More

Remember that Charleston is a walking city, but if you need an alternative, I suggest taking a rickshaw. Great way to get through the city quickly while enjoying the beautiful views.

We caught one of these back to our car sort of late at night after a long day of walking Charleston. They aren't allowed to take some of the main roads, which allowed us to see some streets we hadn't yet. The driver was friendly and the price was right. All in all a great experience!
