The folks at Charlotte NC Tours couldn't have been more enjoyable and helpful. We had never toured downtown Charlotte, and it was fascinating to learn how much of South Carolina history began in Charlotte! Riding the Segway was fun, even for one who is not particularly coordinated! :)

John and Ty were our tour guides and they were the best. Everything was explained exactly how he described. They had a lot of knowledge about uptown Charlotte. I would definitely choose them again.

Our tour guide was great! I forgot his name but we went on the Haunted Segway tour on September 9. He waited on us and also gave us extra time. He was friendly and informative! Great job!

About This Deal

While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Charlotte in terra firma style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an extended history and architecture van tour from Charlotte NC Tours (a $50 value). There’s no purchase limit on today’s deal, so buy enough tickets to bring the entire family, a bunch of co-workers, or a collection of bobbleheads.

As its name slyly suggests, Charlotte NC Tours specializes in illuminating the city of Charlotte for locals and visitors alike. An extended van tour of the city lasts up to 2.5 hours and covers a wide swath of city history and architecture, as well as the streetcar suburbs. Competent and knowledgeable tour guides will wind you down streets lined with oak trees as you explore the myriad surprises Charlotte has to offer, from the naturally occurring and man-made beauty to the numerous cans of peanuts filled with cashews. Architecture is heavily explored in the extended van tour, beginning with the Victorian-era homes of the Fourth Ward, iconic houses with wrap-around porches, turret roofs, and Addams Family mystique.

No tour of Charlotte would be complete without exploring the city’s numerous churches, which come in many architectural styles, including Victorian, Gothic Revival, and Byzantine builds. The tour alights at various moments to explore building interiors, hunt for hidden art gems, and discuss Charlotte’s early Revolutionary War history. Finally, the trip ends with the diverse architecture of Myers Park, which includes several churches, some of the city’s oldest theaters, and the Duke Mansion. Whether you’re a local hoping to learn more about your homestead, you have relatives dropping by, or you simply want to study the life of a tour guide for your upcoming post-modern novel on a tour guide’s inner world, a visit with the kindly folks from Charlotte NC Tours will do the trick. Tours are scheduled weather permitting; call ahead for a reservation.
