Charleston offers a free shuttle, carriage rides and rickshaw rides, all of which are highly recommendable. The rickshaw ride we took, however, was nothing short of awesome. We didn't catch our driver's name, which is a real shame, but he was very nice and talked...More

We wanted a tour and the young man was full of info on our ride back to our hotel. We waved down the 1st one we saw but he had a call and radio to another pedicab to pick us up.

My wife and used this service twice, once to go to the harbor for a cruise. Nic was our first "driver" and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. It's a fun and relatively inexpensive way to travel.

Sweet guys. Very polite. We'll worth the $5 per person. Saves time and let's you enjoy the view. Hope soon to see all (electric) rickshaws and let the horses retire. The horses are not happy ones.

We tried this service twice: once unsuccessfully, the other time very successfully indeed. The first time we called them for a ride, it was in the early morning, which would have been a beautiful time to be pedaled around the city, but they don’t open...More

This wonderful company sent a driver to pick us up after we had walked the Historical Society's Home & Garden Tour. My feet would not carry me back to the car in the parking garage, & that nice young man came & picked us up.

We took a ride to our tour of the Calhoun Mansion. Our driver was very courteous and gave us a delightful ride.

Are the pedicabs relatively easy to get in and out of? My husband has had a hip replacement. Thanks for any info. Also are there fixed rates or do we negotiate with the pedicab owner?

Pedicabs are fairly easy to get into. They are equipped with a step attached to the platform making it easier for customers to enter. Also drivers can pull up to the curb which makes getting in a breeze for anyone. Answered... More
