We really enjoyed our carriage ride through Charleston, despite both oppressive heat and pouring rain during the hour! We were interested to learn that our tour route is dictated by a lottery (literally a ball in a cage) when you leave. That's not specific to this company - that's how the city runs all the carriage tours. We ended up... More

As all Carriages are highly regulated by the city and the state there is not much difference, neiter in the price nor in th erout, approach or anything else BUT check out who will be the driver before you go as they make all the difference and as there are no feedbacks that can be given nor any indication that...

Charleston is beautiful. Taking a carriage tour is a good way to see the old city area. You get see the sites without walking everywhere. The line was a little long to board our carriage. The smell while waiting is not a pleasant one. That is just part of the process. The guides truly make any tour. Ours was fine,... More

We go downtown Charleston every time we visit my parents. We were just taking it easy and decided to take a carriage ride. It was relaxing, educational and affordable. We even got a military discount! A+ service and our guides were great!

Very pleased with our experience at Classic! We made reservations online for the first tour of the morning at 9:30. We printed our tickets at home and arrived by 9:15 as instructed. Our guide, Ginger, and our black Percheron, Dakota, gave us a wonderful tour. It was already hot at 9:30 (late July), so I was really glad we took... More

Took Classic Carriage Works' Civil War tour this morning, with Matt (human) and Berry (horse) as our guides. I could not have been any more impressed with Matt's knowledge of the story behind Charleston and South Carolina's role in the events leading up to, and during, the American Civil War. Matt did an excellent job weaving his storytelling with the... More

My hubby and I had taken one of these carriage rides about 10 yrs. ago but we really liked the Classic Carriage Co. and will stay with them from now on. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and was kind to the percheron pulling our carriage. We heard a lot of history which our family enjoys. We luckily got... More

The carriage rides are the best way to see and learn some of Charleston in a short time, and its so relaxing! The guides are very knowledgeable of the city and that's what you pay to hear. You will cover a portion of the city as the carriage dispatcher assigns one of 5(?) sections to the driver.

We splurged for the smaller carriage that was just our 3 family members plus the guide, and it was well worth the expense! While I have already forgotten our wonderful guide's name, I will always remember the fascinating historical details that he shared with us about his beautiful city. The slow pace of the horse-drawn carriage (the horse's name was... More
