We were just happy that we did this on a rainy afternoon and didn't make the trip into town for this tour. The guide seemed bored and the tour company seemed uninterested. We arrived at 1:50 for a 2:00 tour and were told they had left without us and that the next possible tour would be at 3:00. At three... More

Terrific carriage ride and narration for an hour historical tour. Our guide was really good - great energy and style, and a lot of good information.

The carriage tours were everywhere. We took the 1 hour tour of old downtown, learned some interesting history and stories about the city. The horses and mules are well cared for and the guide was knowledgeable.

We had a group including small children. The staff was super friendly and gave us a great deal of historical information! Our tour guide was funny while also giving us a ton of great facts! She even told us about the horse which the kids enjoyed! This made our first-ever visit to Charleston even more fun!

Great tour stops horse-drawn carriage. Cost is reasonable and helps you find other spots you may want to visit .

The manner in which they welcome you and accommodate you into the carriage is well organized. The guide was funny and knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. His family had lived there for over 100 years. And, he was nice to the horse, which to me was very important!. Bud, our horse took us for a really fun ride for... More

The history presented in this tour was just bad. The Civil War ride was 1 hour of slavery (in which the guide kept looking at the only back guy on the ride) followed by very basic and I'll researched history snippets. The horses are well cared for and not a commodity. I just wish the research was as well cultivated... More

A good way to see all of Charleston in about 1 hour or maybe more time. I felt our guide was very knowledgable about the history of Charleston and I'm glad we spent the money to do the tour. Worth it.

Josh was full of interesting information. He had a great personality for a tour guide... no cheesy jokes, no silly trivia. Just rich, intelligent conversation. I also thought he did an exceptional job of weaving in current events and delicate political positions prevalent in Charleston, both historic and current. He embodied the principle of historic pride with zero hate, and... More
