This was a great carriage ride. The driver was very knowledgeable about Charleston and allowed us plenty of time to take pictures. The horse was extremely well trained even to the point of watching for traffic when he crossed the road.

a carriage is a carriage is a carriage....for what it is worth, this wsa top rated on trip advisor. Very knowledgeable driver. Comfortable and safe. Interesting history in a historically rich city. Good tips on places to visit and eat. We tipped $5 each. For what it is worth - and I'm not an animal guy - there was an... More

The sites along the tour and the people at the tour station were great but we weren't a huge fan of the guide. She clearly doesn't agree with choices the city has made and the money they have spent on certain things - she makes comments about it throughout the entire tour. Overall I think she's just a pessimistic person... More

Based on other reviews on TripAdvisor, we took the advice and scheduled our tour early in the visit. This was a great way to become familiar with the downtown streets and their historic significance. I highly recommend this tour! Everything was timed well and handled professionally. It's a great tour for children and adults. Great scenery! Note: The company provides... More

We had a great tour with Tim and Elwood, the Percheron draft horse pulling our carriage. When you tour by carriage, you stop at a city kiosk where the driver is given his route by lottery draw. This helps to keep the traffic moving because the main streets are not clogged by carriages. Unfortunately, this means that you may not... More

Matt was our driver and guide. He was great. He dressed in period costume(the only one). He was a wealth of knowledge and very humorous to boot. Kids and adults had a good time.

Since my daughter is studying the Civil War, this tour was a must do! What a great tour! Our guide was incredibly funny, intelligent and full of civil war info! We drew the bingo ball for Route #1, which includes the battery and Rainbow Row, so lots of great photo ops as well! Dakota is the largest horse they have,... More

Greg, our guide, first explained how the horses are cared for - in case we wondered. And we usually do after hearing horror stories of the treatment of horses in Mackinac Island, MI. Once assured that Classic Carriage Tours takes suburb care of their co-workers, the horses, off we went to hear of the architecture, the politics, churches, Civil War,... More

We have always wanted to take a carriage ride to see sites. We found out early that you really never know which route they will be taking because they don't like to overcrowd one area. Our route was interesting and our horse was Carson. Our guide was very knowledgeable regarding civil war info which is what my husband was excited... More
