The Tour was perfect. I learned so much on the tour and loved seeing all the pretty houses. Our tour guide was born and raised in Charleston so we got a real amazing and personal tour!!! And our horse Yemassee was so SWEET and adorable!

We booked a private carriage on-line so wasn't sure what we were getting. No worries! They out-did themselves. Captain Tim was our tour guide...very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions and needs. Treat yourself!!

Need to start off by saying that my wife and I lived in Charleston for over 13 years and this was only our second carriage tour. We felt the price was very reasonable and it was convenient as they were located in the lobby of the hotel we were staying at. We took the 5:00 tour on Saturday the 27th.... More

we came as a group of 6 & enjoyed the carriage ride. you don't cover as much ground as I expected in an hour, but the guide provided a lot of interesting stories & history about the city. The tour path is determined by lottery. We bought our tickets & had access to seating & bathrooms in the adjoining hotel... More

We booked online from Scotland .. It was a private horse carriage ride the day before our wedding and were very fortunate to have a great guy named Tim as our driver and a lovely horse called Gibbes

Having lived in South Carolina my whole life, I had never been on a carriage ride in Charleston. We came to Charleston the night of our wedding for a brief honeymoon. Decided to take a carriage ride. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to view Charleston harbor. Got to see many areas of downtown you usually don't see... More

My husband and I enjoyed the carriage tour. The guide was friendly, very well informed, knew "secrets" about some of the historic places and had a good sense of humour. I would certainly recommend this tour to Charleston visitors!
