This was our first trip to Charleston and what better way to learn about the city and its history than from a history teacher. Nick not only shared a wealth of knowledge about Charleston with us, he did it while handling Amigo who wanted to turn an hour ride into a 30 minute ride.

We had made a reservation directly with CPCC (843-577-6767) prior to our arrival, allowing us to avoid any lines to purchase tickets. Our credit card was not charged until we checked in. Katharine was both helpful and a pleasure to work with both on the phone and in person.

We thoroughly enjoyed our carriage ride and highly recommend Carolina Polo and Carriage Company.

We were a bit worried because when we made reservations for this ride, the website only let us choose a date, not a specific time. On a day when downtown is super crowded, we worried about a long wait. We arrived at 2:15 and were told to be at the pickup location (a short walk away) for the 2:40 ride. That gave us plenty of time to hit the restrooms at the City Market and grab some yummy candied pecans while we were there. When 2:40 came around, we were waiting for our carriage and loaded up right on time.
Our horse was Chico, and he (along with our driver) gave us a great tour around town. We saw some areas we hadn’t seen before, and learned some history that our other tours hadn’t shared. We even got to see the mansion of one of the Southern Charm stars (and saw some of the filming crew, too).
The ride was a full hour long, making us feel that we got a great value for our money. We would definitely do the tour again, especially knowing that the city chooses one of four routes for each tour that goes out. If you got lucky, you could do it four times and have four different experiences!

Nick and Yemissy were awesome. Our family is in Charleston for the week and decided a carriage ride would be a great way to learn about the city. It was even better than we expected. Nick was engaging and very knowledgeable, answering any questions and overall making a very pleasant experience. 10/10, 11 if allowed, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the city.

We had a great ride with Amigo leading the way. The guide was extremely knowledgeable of the tour spots and pointed out small things that would normally be overlooked when walking on your own. If you have 4 or less I would definitely do the private tour. We will do it again.

We totally enjoyed our private carriage tour with Eric, our guide, and Chico. Eric was extremely personable and informative as was Michael who we met in the office prior to the tour. This is such a pleasant way to get acclimated to the lovely historic district of Charleston. We would highly recommend scheduling this wonderful experience.

Our tour was fantastic! The driver was so pleasant and had lots of cool stories about Charleston history and architecture. You can also tell that they can fantastic care of their horses. It was worth it to book the private carriage for my group of 10.

Highly recommended if you want to see the less travelled parts of the Historic District and little known history of the area. Our coach driver was David. His knowledge was deep and his presentation was engaging. Great ride and experience!
