A Surprising Option

I had not seen these bike tours before, but can be a great way to get around town if you need to give your feet a break from walking.

Had a voucher from our hotel. We took it from our hotel to North King Street for dinner. Our "Driver" was super fun and chatty. Made for a very pleasant ride to dinner. Not too expensive either. An enjoyable way to get around town.

The pedicab drivers varied in how sociable they were, but more were very friendly than not. Only thing to be aware of was that the price, although supposedly set by management, varied between rides...$5.50, $6.00, $6.50...not a big deal but something to be aware of.

A fun, efficient way to travel around the city and historic district of Charleston. The drivers are all great and the open air rickshaws make the trip even more enjoyable. They are everywhere s o you just grab one and go!

We walked four or 5 miles each day and these guys were lifesavers when our feet were tired or when we needed to get somewhere faster than we can get there on foot. I highly recommend them. Each of the five drivers we hand was courteous, helpful and accommodating and it is a great way to see the city

After a long walk in the Charleston sunshine, we were hot and tired! We decided to treat ourself to a rickshaw ride back to the hotel... Drew, the rickshaw "driver" was fantastic! So friendly, quick, and pleasant. He gave us some really interesting information about the area during our brief ride. It's a great alternative to the normal taxi ride... More

Our group traveled to and from dinner several times and enjoyed the ride. Non-walkers in the group were especially happy and the drivers were a lot of fun. A good relaxing way to get back to the hotel after dinner. We'd call ahead and they'd be there for the pickup.

Great service! Nice local guy named Josh! He gave us his number to call when we needed him later in the day. And it was priced reasonably!
