This tour is great for learning about the City's history. You will learn a lot about the old houses in Charleston and Charleston during the civil war. Our tour guide, Jon, was really great and knowledgeable. You could tell that he loved what he did.

Our guide had a degree in history and was from Charleston - and seemed to know everybody along the way. We purchased our tickets outside of town at a visitors center and paid $30 (listed price was $32). I don't know if that place is legit but we weren't pressured into anything else (I.e. Timeshare spiels). We lined up on... More

This was my third carriage tour- I enjoyed them more and more each time and learned different things about Charleston each time. Tour guide was friendly, funny, and answered questions.

Had some friends visiting, of course had to take them on a carriage ride. Carolina Polo did NOT disappoint. Glen and Ashepoo were fun. Glen gave a light hearted informative tour of the city. My friends were happy and couldn't stop talking about what fun it was and how much they learned about Charleston. Living here, I could choose any... More

This was my third time with this company.The experience is wondeful each time!! The guide, Glen(from Maryland), was extremely knowledgeable and had a wonderful personality. He made the experience, not only fun, but very interesting. He took questions at all points of the ride. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience for us!! :) Your company rocks!!!... More

Upon arrival, the tour guide didn't seem very friendly. I was standing there with my children and was informed I had to open the carriage door myself (which was tricky). Tour guide provided historical information and answered our questions. Enjoyed the carriage ride and the sights. However, the tour ended at 40 minutes although I was charged for an hour... More

I had the pleasure of taking a lovely carriage tour of Charleston on Sunday with Carolina Polo and Carriage Co. Our tour guide, Glen, was terrific! He was a happy, interesting and humorous character, knowledgeable of all aspects of the history, restaurant scene, entertainment options and general "feel" of this beautiful city. Montgomery, our slow and steady steed, appeared healthy... More

This is my first tour of Charleston, despite many visits there over the years. Our tour guide was informative and seemed to enjoy the interaction with the guests. Love his own interjection of humor to the "script" of information. It made the trip enjoyable, fun, and interesting. Was thrilled to hear my out of town guest who'd never been to... More

What a great way to see part of the city. You actually only see a portion of the city and you don't know your route until your carriage stops at the police control station and is given it's route. But, we had a freebie so there were no complaints on our part. Our carriage was quite nice and our driver... More
