We had the opportunity to take a carriage tour with the Old South Carriage Company. Our tour leader's name was John (a band teacher) and he was great. He was able to answer our carriages questions, tell about local real estate, and of course the history of Charleston, SC. The tour lasted about an hour and we were awarded tour section #3. They have discount tickets on their website and also have the ability to combo with other tours within Charleston. The only regret we had was that we were told the last tour left downtown at 5:00 pm, however we went on a walking ghost tour with Bull Dog tours (next door) and saw many carriages in the city after 8:00 pm. Puzzling, but that is what all the companies said as well?? However, John was a great guide. Ask for John!!!
