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

Our "driver" was Faith and we called back and requested her again.......Nice, great personality........very knowledgeable about Charleston. Took us off the beaten path a bit (at our request) . Now I am taking my teenage daughter and just called... More

On our first day in Charleston we started our day with a rickshaw ride around town. Bud was our driver. He was super friendly! We enjoyed the opportunity to get a lay of the land and plan out our trip. My husband and I both agreed this was one of the highlights of our trip. We would both highly recommend... More

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
