About Old South Carriage Company
See historic Charleston from the vantage point of an Old South Carriage. Family owned and operated since 1983, Old South Carriage Company offers narrated, hour-long carriage tours by licensed guides, day and night. Come to our stable at 14 Anson Street, just 2 blocks from The City Market and meet our friendly and professional staff. Reservations are not necessary but recommended as tours frequently sell out. We use French Percherons and Belgian Draft horses. These sturdy equine employees vacation at Sugah Cain, the owner's 65-acre plantation on John's Island. For 2-3 months annually, these beautiful horses are free to run in large pastures or graze under century-old live oaks. Look for the Red Sash: our symbol of a quality horse-drawn carriage tour of Charleston, South Carolina.

Loved this tour! Learned so much about Charleston and its history. Our guide was amazing with lots of information about the city with a little bit of humor to go along with it! The horses are very well cared for at this facility. Very impressed from start to finish! I would recommend going in the early morning during summer months. We were on an 9:45 am ride and it was 86 degrees. It was comfortable but could image mid-day would be hot!

The city assigns what route you get so maybe we had a bad route but I came away knowing very little more than when I left. The guide was bland and not funny. Don’t get me wrong, he tried but there was no rapport. Compared to the many city tours I’ve taken elsewhere, theirs fell far short of reasonable expectations. I would not recommend this. Pro tip if you still chose to go- don’t sit at the front because the driver stands in front of you- literally stood on my foot once it was that tight and the flies from around the horses ass will irritate the hell out of you. Good luck.
