We thoroughly enjoyed our carriage ride. The driver was knowledgeable and Larry, the horse was entertaining. Our tour took us through the Battery. It was the last tour of the day. Neither horse nor driver rushed us through the tour. I would do another one the next time I am in Charleston.

Matt was our tour guide and he gave an excellent presentation. Even our teenage grandsons liked it. He gave lots of interesting details about all the Charleston attractions as well as facts about Charleston's history.

This horse drawn carriage tour takes you around charleston and mainly highlights the city architecture. If you like this sort of thing then this is the tour for you. About 15 people are seated in each carriage. Be aware that during the summer it is EXTREMELY hot, so consider the time of day when booking your tour. Overall it was... More

Beautiful morning ride through Charleston streets. I'm from the area (Summerville) but it's nice to be taken down streets you'd never drive or see. The tour guide had a great sense of humor and the horse (Larry) was ready to go. Friendly stable staff. Great care for the horses after the ride. I would recommend this carriage company to anyone!

Our tour guide John was excellent. Well spoken ( with a nice southern drawl), clear and audible, smart with history and funny. Definitely recommend for your Charleston visit and it only takes an hour.

I spoke to Tim last month to plan this tour. I did a lot of research & Classic Carriage came highly recommend. We had Ginger as our guild along with Magic the most beautiful horse.

Ginger was very informative and pleasant. Magic the horse was a dragon showing his dominance to all who passed by. He was a great part of the tour. We saw such a beautiful part of the city with great information from Ginger. Classic Carriage Rides is a great company.

Taking a carriage ride is a great way to see some of Charleston and learn some of its history. There are a lot of them, operated by several different companies, not sure it matters which one you choose as they all use the same lottery system to get an assigned route as they are leaving, and pricing seemed to be...

Matt was our guide and he was fantastic. Lots of interesting stories, history, architecture, etc.. Very well versed in local history, easy to hear, and answered each and every question. A great way to get an overview of Charleston.
