We took a Classic Carriage Works ride on a beautiful December afternoon and enjoyed every minute of it! Our guide, Patrick, was amazingly informative, well spoken and fun. We booked the "adults only" (really, no kids under 8 allowed). The carriage was well-maintained and blankets were provided. The horse looked very healthy and well treated (and we were invited into...

Had a great tour of the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the city and its history. Our young daughters enjoyed seeing the horses and the houses but did get a little bored (which was to be expected). Definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed our tour through historic Charleston. Our guide was both informative and entertaining, and we loved our horse, Jake. Classic Carriage Works seems to take really good care of their horses, and they have nice, spacious stalls when they're not working. The horses also get a considerable amount of vacation time at a farm or whatnot! Pretty impressive!... More

I have taken carriage rides in the past and every one is different. This one was informative and funny. Although the weather was nippy in the shade; the sun warmed everyone up. The driver was comfortable with people.

Matt and his horse Barry gave us a wonderful overview of the city, and showed us many of the great ante bellum mansions and town houses. His knowledge, especially of the history of Charleston, was impressive, and he kept us all amused and entertained throughout

I was very apprehensive about taking a carriage tour while on my family's recent trip to Charleston. I was told by some friends that many of the guides are ill informed and lack the experience and charisma to give a worthwhile tour of Charleston. However, I recently took a carriage ride with Patrick and his horse Larry and was astounded... More

My daughter, granddaughter and I took a historical sightseeing tour with Classic Carriage. The guide was great. Very informative, courteous and funny. While in FULL DISCLOSURE, there were other carriage companies available, we decided on this particular one due a discounted ticket. I believe I would choose this company again. Not speaking ill of any other carriage co. because we... More

We were advised to tour with CCW because of their knowledgeable drivers. Our choice was right on. Trey, our driver didn't stop speaking from the minute we started until we finished. We toured Route B, a section we had not yet walked. Trey explained the history of SC leadership in the succession from the Union as we passed the homes... More

October 12, 2014 2 PM tour, horse: Bud I understand that our experience is not the norm for this company. The guide insulted other carriage tour companies and made derogatory comments about various States, religions, and the City of Charleston. Comments about the history of the city were minimal.
