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!

At first my Wife and I were embarrassed to utilize the service; we are both adults on the larger size, and our peddler was a petite young gal. However, within the first 20 feet our doubts and qualms completely vanished. Faith (our young peddler) was more than up to the task and also provided us with the name of an... More

This is a good way to get around Charleston - especially if you're getting tired from all of the sightseeing or if you're not sure where you're going. There is supposedly a trolley that you can ride for free in Charleston but we found it to be very unreliable. So near the end of our time we decided to try... More

We went to a show but we parked a ways away and meandered through the city. After sitting in the Sottile Theater for several hours, my shoes and feet were not getting along. We saw several rickshaws at the curb so we struck up a deal to catch a ride closer to the Market area. It was fun. The guy... More
