Old South Carriage Tours was recommended to us, and we were NOT disappointed. Our guide was John Bryan, and other than pausing for dramatic effect or taking a sip of water, he talked the whole time! I gathered that he was native to Charleston. He...More

The ride was nice and relaxing and our guide was friendly. Wish we could've heard more history and sometimes it was hard to hear her but overall a good experience!

After taking a historic tour with Old South, we were looking forward to the ghost tour. However, the ghost tour was extremely disappointing. The poor horse, Jake was still panting from the tour he did before ours. We did see the staff check his temperature...More

We had an initial hiccup with the front desk staff when we arrived. Our printed ticket stated where and when to arrive to check in our reservation. There was nobody at the desk when we entered. If it wasn't for a local that walked in...More

I'm sorry but I can't recall if they do the tours in the rain. Might want to call ahead of time or wait until its stops raining-they seem to run all the time.
