Seeing and hearing the history about the places we visited. The tour guide was prompt, and he knew the history of Charlotte very well. The bus was clean and the guide provided water

Patrick as a native was so good at bringing his city to life. Loved the "rest" stop at Reid's Market. Given the smear heat, the air conditioned van with the large clear windows was a wonderful way to see Charlotte in comfort.

We took the tour on 7/5 at 10:00. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about Charlotte. I recommend this tour for everyone. I truly enjoyed it.

June 26th departure from the Westin. Our guide Greg was very knowledgeable. He did a magnificent job, from driving in congestion to explaining in great detail about the buildings, etc! Definitely recommend this informative tour! Well worth the $$. Would do it again!

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Joe, was born and raised in Charlotte and was knowledgeable and friendly. We saw all the highlights and got ideas for what we wanted to visit later. On a hot day, it's really nice to see the city in air conditioned comfort. It can be difficult to see taller buildings up close because of the roof of the van, but it's a good trade off when it's so hot out. The food hall where we stopped didn't have much that I was interested in eating. (It seriously needs a cookie or donut place!) But the bathrooms were clean and it was enough of a rest stop to get out and stretch your legs. I would definitely recommend this tour. I went with my mom who is older and can't walk long distances, so it's a good tour for people with mobility issues.
