Charlotte's Historical City Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a unique guided tour through North Carolina’s largest city on a guided tour of Charlotte and see some of the top attractions in the area. From its earliest years to the present, Charlotte has had many nicknames but we simply call it 'home'. We are proud of where we live and have a strong desire to share the historical side of this city!  We can't wait to pass along this information to first-time visitors as well as long-time residents. Sit back and enjoy a smooth tour on one of our golf carts.
  • Cruise through Charlotte in an open-air golf cart ideal for close-up views
  • Small-group tour means plenty of time to ask questions
  • Fully narrated tour introduces you to fun Charlotte history and culture
  • Try fried pickles—a Charlotte favorite—at the end of the tour
What to Expect
Make your way to an easy-to-find meeting point in Uptown Charlotte to begin your tour. Board a premium 7-person golf cart for a Charlotte city tour with open-air views of top sights including the NASCAR Hall of Fame, BB&T Ballpark, and Spectrum Stadium. Ride past vibrant Victorian homes in the Historic Fourth Ward and the warehouses, breweries, and art galleries of the First Ward as your guide entertains with insight about Queen City. Continue through the artsy South End and onward to the up-and-coming areas of NoDa and Plaza Midwood, pausing to take photos and ask questions as you go. Finish your tour at a favorite pub chowing down on fried pickles—a classic Charlotte snack.
