The tour was informative and fun. I learned about Charlotte’s history, including it’s name, and saw so much of the city. The fourth ward was beautiful. Sandy was an outstanding guide. Highly recommend this.

Getting to know Charlotte
Oct 2021 • Solo
So much history in Charlotte - learned about the origin of the hornets - Charlotte Hornets basketball team for example. The 4 wards each have their own uniqueness. Dave was a top-notch tour guide - friendly and knowledgeable!

Fun and Informative Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed our historical tour with “DJ”Danny. We walked up without a reservation and he was able to squeeze us in. We were lucky to get on and will make a reservation next time. DJ gave us lots of interesting tidbits about Charlotte. The tour is a great way to get your bearings in this fine city and determine what you want to investigate further. He also had some good recommendations for meals and museums. We definitely recommend this tour for when you arrive in town, or if you live in the area, it’s a great way to learn things you didn’t know about Charlotte.

Aug 2021
Fantastic tour! Sandy was our tour guide, and she did a tremendous job! It was a great way to see the city uptown Charlotte and learn about the city. The golf cart helps to get around to different areas quickly, allows for frequent stops to explain what's around, and gives everyone a great seat! Highly recommended!
