The historic tour lasted about 2 hours. We were on a small bus. Our tour guide, Will, had a great sense of humor and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He had interesting stories and background to tell about all the sites that we saw. This was a great way to learn about Charleston quickly. Very enjoyable.

Will was our tour guide for the day. He was very entertaining and a consummate professional. His knowledge of the area was incredible, as should be expected. We went on the city tour first and then the plantation tour. One thing that I didn't realize before we started out was that all but one of the original plantations were burned down during the war. The company can arrange to pick you up at your hotel downtown if needed. I recommend taking these tours upon your arrival to the city. My seating advice is to sit on the passenger side of the bus about midway back as you'll get the best glimpse of everything. Enjoy!

My husband and I spent the second day of our trip on the tour that combined the historic city and Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Our guide Will was personable, informative, and entertaining! We learned about Charleston's role in history and the ongoing efforts to preserve historical landmarks, architecture and wetlands. At the plantation, we had some free time to have lunch and visit a petting zoo. Different guides gave us a tour of the beautiful plantation house and some of the property. That rounded out our wonderful day.

My daughter and I did the city and plantation tour combined. Our guide Will picked us up at the hotel. After going to the visitor's center to pick up the other guests we were off. Will was very informative and interesting. We got off at the battery and walked around for a while. After the tour we went back to the center and got other guests and then we were off to the plantation. The plantation was huge and had a petting zoo. We took a tour around the plantation and then we went into the house. On the way back to the center we all chatted with Will and asked all kinds of questions ranging from where to go to eat and what other tours to go on. It was a long day but it was a good one.
