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

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
