We were on a cart that only carried 4 other tourists (including ourselves), so it was like having a private tour. Brenda took us around and showed us key buildings in and around Uptown--government buildings, sports and event complexes, landmarks, and historic homes in the Fourth Ward, all within 1.5 hours. She was very knowledgeable and was able to cite recent events or celebrities that performed in the event arenas, as well as point out certain building details on the tour that many people may miss. The tour provided a good overview on the 'lay of the land' in central Charlotte and where key landmarks are located. Because our group was so small, we were able to ask as many questions as we wanted without causing any delay in the tour. Brenda's enthusiasm about the town showed through during the tour, making it very enjoyable as well as educational.

The tour was awesome and really highlighted the amazing city of Charlotte! Our tour guide, Sandy, was very informative and a great ambassador for the Queen City. I would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Charlotte!! One recommendation would be if you are taking the Lynx, the CTC Transportation Center is the closest train stop to meet up with the Golf Cart. The web sent us to 7th street stop, which was quite a long walk for anyone who has mobility issues.
Well worth the price and the Queen City Tour team are the best!!!

This was a great experience. It took us on a historical ride through the wards (Charlotte is broken down into wards). We were introduced to many historical facts/buildings and new facts such as the banking commerce in Charlotte, the new soccer team the updated improvements and building in the area. Wear comfortable clothing, prepare for weather. It’s an open golf cart. Would do again.

Brian was our tour guide. He was very informed: he clearly knows the city very well. He was not only knowledgable about the city's history but also about modern-day changes, developments and places - and we loved that he pointed out both where Michael Jordan has a home and where Peter from RHOA has a bar LOL for example. He was good-spirited, entertaining and funny in addition to smart. He was a font of great anecdotes and observations. And we appreciated that he would ask us if we wanted him to stop the trolley so we could get better pictures and also that he pointed out good restaurants and bars. We learned so much, big and small things. He was great.

We had a great time with Danny. He is very knowledgeable, entertaining and pays attention to his customers. The tour was excellent to get an introduction to Charlotte. He gave us lots of tips on things to do and restaurants. The cart was comfortable and perfect to visit town in a hot and humid climate as the cart is open on the sides and you get a nice breeze. Highly recommended.

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.

This activity takes up to 7 people in an open air electric cart sightseeing tour of the four wards of Charlotte. The guide, Brian, was very knowledgeable, easy to hear and understand, and accommodating of guests who wanted to take a picture or look longer at something. He obviously loved his job and his city and had a great sense of humor.

Queen City Rides with Brian as our Tour guide was an excellent way to see the city! We were entertained and learned a lot along the way. We went to all 4 wards and got to experience the culture of the city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and gave great restaurant recommendations.
