We loved everything about this full day tour! The only thing we wish was different is we wish we had more time at the plantation so we could do all the tours and hear all of the history and the market to shop. But we did get to do and see a lot in one day! The guide Bob was awesome!

This was a great way to see and hear the history of Charleston. The carriage ride was very informative and explained loads of history from back to the 1600’s. The harbor tour was beautiful and luckily it was sunny. Boone plantation was gorgeous. The bus was comfortable and smooth riding.
