Experience! We have conducted more professionally-guided tours of Charlotte than any other company. In fact, we have 15 years MORE experience than our most experienced competitor so do the math -- More Experience=More Content=More Bang for Your Buck!

Is there any such thing as a certified guide?

Unfortunately no. There is no official certification process of becoming a tour guide in Charlotte; as such you must apply due diligence in choosing who you spend your hard-earned money. It takes at least 10 years of professional experience to conduct a worthwhile tour of Charlotte!

Why are you not members of Visit Charlotte and does that matter?

We were members of that organization for many years, however, have found the current leadership extremely dishonest and non-trustworthy. A "paid" membership in Visit Charlotte has absolutely NO bearing on the level of tour that you and your guests will experience! Please check with the Better Business Bureau for a more independent review of any company.

Why are your competitors' rated higher in Trip Advisor?

Trip Advisor is a good consumer-based open-sourced review site which is useful, however, should not be used as your sole source of information on a company or service. In addition, please proceed with caution if a "new" company displays an unusually high and frequent list of favorable testimonials. There is a good chance that some of those accolades have been coerced and possibly fabricated to make up for a lack of a long track record of success.

Do your offer discounts or coupons?

Yes, we offer child, senior, and "early bird" discounts as listed on our tour times/pricing page. The best way to keep up with all of our discounts is to "like" us on our Facebook page or sign up for our email list.
