Family Trip to Charleston
Had a great time, Austin and Garth Brooks ( horse) were awesome ! The kids loved it, aged 3-15. I’m amazed at how well they can navigate through the busy streets and never miss a beat with the story telling .

Ghost tour with Shannon
Sep 2021 • Couples
Shannon is thee absolute best tour guide we have EVER had on any tour or any travel destination.
Her enthusiasm and humor as well as comfort with telling stories was second to none.
Horse Rowdy was a gentle horse amd proceed a smooth trip.

HIGHLY recommend this trip but ya gotta request Shannon.

Ok, but not great
We normally love historical tours. We took this tour on the night of arrival hopping to get a good introduction of the city and highlights of areas to visit, with a few ghost stories laced in. However, we mostly got random ghost siting stories. Because it’s only 40 minutes, and apparently we may have been assigned the random fifth route that doesn’t have a lot of points of interest, we were disappointed for the price we paid. We were also seated in the last row and had difficulty hearing the driver at times. We later took a walking history history tour during the day and a walking haunted history tour the next day and loved those.

Loved the carriage ride. Austin was a very good tour guide and was knowledgeable about the town history. Garth Brooks was a very good horse. He was gentle and not spooked by cars or sirens.

A must in Charleston
Great tour. Well worth it. Our guide Austin was fun, knowledgeable, and a great storyteller. Our horse Austin is new, but behaved like an old hand, even when we were passed by a fire truck with lights and siren. Make sure and take this tour!

Our carriage ride was great. Our guide Big John was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our horse, Jason, provided a smooth ride and kept calm through all the noise and bustle of traffic in town. Can’t wait to check out all of the haunted locations that were pointed out up close!!!
