We just returned from a wonderful visit to Kiawah Island and Charleston SC. Our carriage tour was to start at 5:15 on Thursday 11 July. The driver/tour guide and carriage arrived at 5:30. It was a hot day and no shade and no where to sit while we waited. No apologizes were given! .....the driver asked how old our youngest grand daughter was and thought we should sit at the BACK because "kids that age (3) always scream" etc. We told him she would be fine and he said "yeah thats what everyone says!" So we loaded our party of 7 in the back. BTW our grand daughter didn't make a peep the entire ride.
NEXT "Lighting".... I think that is what he told us his name was... told us we would not be seeing any of the historic area of homes as he didn't want to get caught in that district after 6pm as he would get a $1500 fine. WELL THEN let me see.... maybe the guy that booked our tour might have mentioned that? MAYBE the driver should have been on time? Just a thought! The drivers whining about the $1500 fine went on for many minutes. So instead we saw..... alleys.....buildings with no meanings and a lot of personal chatter from Mr Lighting! We were even on the streets with cars in the shopping area at one point. It was awful and very disappointing! And at the end.... he "asked" for tips! Needless to say we gave NOTHING as he gave us NOTHING! FIND ANOTHER CARRIAGE COMPANY! This one takes your money and doesn't care what kind of experience you have!
