Charleston is one of my favorite cities to visit. Every time I get a chance, I either go to the beach or hang around the city. This time, me and my family decided to do their tours and chose Charleston Harbor Tours for it and bought their boat and horse and carriage package. Loved the experience, the boat ride was super informational and a great ride. From the captain to the staff were all super nice and helpful. even the bicycle guy helped my dad get to the line faster by giving him a lift!
The horse and carriage ride was also nice except for that moment when the Owen Wilson-looking guy kind of tripped and lost control of the horse after one of the tires popped. It all happened so fast but as he lost control, he pulled one of the strings instead of both of them to stop the horse (harmony) which lead it to make a super sharp turn, almost tipping the carriage. Scary, I know but nothing serious happened. The horse just freaked out but he (Owen Wilson-looking guy) was able to calm the horse and get it back to course within seconds.
After thinking about how it all went down, my rating of 5 stars remain because he (Owen-looking buy) handled the situation like a pro, got us back to safety super quick and kept us informed that it will be a loud ride back because of the missing tire. He had mentioned being a horse trainer for many years before this job and that situation showed his experience and level of expertise. Needless to say, I trust these guys and would definitely pay for another horse and carriage trip!
Overall, great experience, would recommend to others. Charleston is a beautiful city and these guys know their stuff!
