Welcome to the city of Charleston, known for its cobblestone streets, colorful antebellum houses, horse-drawn carriages and Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the Civil War rang out. There is so much of this city to discover and it’s waiting just for you! As your room at the hotel won’t be available until late afternoon, we’ll take you to the heart of the city for independent exploration prior to checking in.

Beaufort, SC–Savannah, Georgia
Your day begins with a visit to Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens. Enter along the world-famous Avenue of Oaks and discover one of America’s oldest plantations, including a guided tour of the first floor and the Black History in America exhibit, presenting the history of slavery during plantation life. Travel down the coast through South Carolina’s Low Country, stopping en route at the lovely little harbor town of Beaufort, located on Port Royal Island. Here you’ll find a downtown designated as a historic district, with horse and buggy rides, antebellum architecture and some of the South’s most unique restaurants. You’ll spend a bit of independent time in the historic district and grab lunch (on own) before continuing your journey to Savannah. (B)

Savannah, Georgia
Savannah is waiting! Climb aboard and step into Savannah’s fascinating history on a trolley tour of the city’s cobblestone streets and elegant neighborhoods. Your historic conductor will share scenes from life in the historic South, divulge stories and secrets, and point out the landmarks and mansions you pass along the way. We’ve included a hop-on-hop-off, unlimited re-boarding trolley ticket, affording an afternoon to explore as you please. Tonight, join the group at a local waterfront restaurant, dwelling in an 18th-century restored cotton warehouse, for your farewell dinner. If you’ve never had or heard of shrimp and grits, you’re in for a treat. Watch and learn as the chef demonstrates how to make this delicious southern favorite. There’s plenty of recipes out there, but there is something about this recipe that stands out above the rest. (B, D)

The essence of a company is what they are, not just in the good times, but in the tough times. You all have come through with flying colors and are the model of how it "should" work. Yes, we have been on multiple wonderful trips with Cruise & Tour, but your customer care is what has just separated you from all others. We sadly had 3 international trips (with other companies) canceled in March of 2020 and are still wading through endless bureaucracy to get reimbursed; Cruise & Tour just displayed a WHOLE different and critical side of travel. No one EVER has said, "I hope my wonderful planned trip is canceled", but when it does, hopefully they have chosen Cruise & Tour! An ecstatic customer! :)

From the communications that were emailed, to the availability of people when you had questions and all the sign holding people at the airport, Cruise & Tour took care of every detail. We didn't have to think about anything except having a good time and relaxing.
