Local recommendations. As well as it being a neat way to travel through town. Mostly college kids and they are reasonable with prices

What a great way to get around this beautiful city. Took the rickshaw to dinner on a Saturday night, got to see neighborhoods we wouldn't otherwise and have a delightful conversation with our "driver." If you are at all inclined to do this, do not hesitate: We would do it again in a heartbeat and absolutely beats taking a cab... More

Very glad we chose this bike taxi company. Our driver, Andy, was wonderful. Great conversation and a fun quick ride to our destination. Loved getting to see the beautiful homes off the beaten track from busy touristy roads. Will definitely be calling for a lift again on our next charleston trip.

We were in a hurry to meet a walking tour group and public transportation was behind schedule. (Imagine that). He safely but quickly got us to our destination and even tracked our tour group down so we didn't miss a minute more. This is a great way to get around Charleston at a very reasonable price

My husband and I hopped on one of the 2 seater tricycles in town and our "driver" peddled us around town. The cabs are covered to shelter you from the sun and (shudder) possible rain. I was amazed at how easily the young girls were able to go up some of the hills. It was a lot of fun.

If by the end of the day you're too tired to walk to your favorite restaurant in Charleston hire a rickshaw. These young kids can get you all about Charleston in a matter of minutes. I prefer using this company rather than a taxi company when I am not walking about the city. The rates are extremely reasonable!

I really don't know what my family would do without the rickshaw folks. These people are amazingly friendly and work so hard without complaining. Even though it was over 100 degrees out they were still friendly and smiling. Visiting Charleston means a lot of walking! My mom has knee trouble and I have back problems. We also have small children... More

Rickshaw driver from this company ran into the rear and side of my vehicle while I was at a complete stop! There were 2 passengers on the rickshaw, who luckily did not get hurt. I wish I could say the same for my vehicle!!!!!!!!!! The driver, who was clearly at fault, was very rude and inconsiderate! While attached to my... More

Randomly got a Charleston Rickshaw Co pedicab on first night of weekend trip to Charleston last week - had a GREAT driver Geoff. The ride back to our hotel was so enjoyable, we called ahead for almost everything the rest of the weekend. Saturday we used CRC 4 times and at each pickup, Jay was our driver. We started at...
