What people are saying about Charleston

We chose to do the USS Yorktown Ghost Tour on Sunday the 11th. It was by far the highlight of the weekend! Tad Legare was extremely knowledgeable of the ship and a very entertaining tour guide. I was worried this would be a cheesy ghost tour with a bunch of fake noises and bad stories but it wasn't at all. More about the history of those lost on the ship and what people have experienced ever since then. The USS Yorktown is beautiful at night and much less crowded. Only complaint is that it ended too soon! We could have easily spent another hour and a half with Tad giving us a tour of the rest of the ship. This should be a must do on your Charleston trip for sure!

It was fun to be out in the sun on an historical replica boat. The guide was entertaining and informative.Unfortunately, we came late so all the seats upstairs were taken, and downstairs it was freezing cold, so I couldn't stay there for long. I think it's always nice to see a city from afar, but it's definitely not my favorite experience of Charleston. To see houses it's way more fun to just walk around, since the boat is pretty far away from everything. Still, I didn't regret this little, fun trip.

THE CRUISE WAS VERY NICE. THE ANNOUNCER/GUIDE/CAPTAIN USED HUMOR WITHIN HIS TALKS OF HISTORY AROUND CHARLESTON. THE CREW WAS VERY HELPFUL. IT RAINED FOR MAYBE 20 MINUTES AND WHEN THE RAIN ENDED THEY HAD DRIED OFF OUR SEATS ON THE UPPER DECK THAT WERE UNCOVERED SO WE COULD SIT BACK DOWN.

Very fun, captain was knowledgeable and funny. Saw a bunch of dolphins too! Mask up, slightly annoyed the young couple next to us opted out after the explanation that it was required.

Fun even if you have gray hair Would have liked to have seen more historical places. Graham was a very professional and thorough guide especially on safety and driving instruction!
