Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: See historic Charleston than from the vantage point of an Old South Carriage. Family owned and operated since 1983, Old South Carriage Company offers narrated hour-long tours by licensed guides, day and night. Come to our English-style stable at 14 Anson Street, just 2 blocks from The City Market and meet our friendly and professional staff. Reservations are not necessary as tours depart every 20 - 30 minutes throughout the day. A ramp leading to a platform makes boarding easy. Old South Carriage Company uses French Percherons and Belgian Draft horses. These sturdy equine employees vacation at Sugah Cain, the owner's 65-acre plantation on John's Island. For 2-3 months annually, these beautiful horses are free to run in large pastures or leisurely graze under century-old live oaks. Tours operate daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 (DST) 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (EST). ~Look for the Red Sash~ Our symbol of a quality horse-drawn carriage tour of Charleston, South Carolina.

We really enjoyed ourselves on this tour. Worth the the money. We had John the tour guide and Jake the horse. Both very enjoyable.

I enjoyed this. My family enjoyed this.
Our guide did an excellent job. He was knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
I would recommend this to others visiting Charleston. I was concerned about the horses, but these horses are well cared for.
I would suggest to anyone to book early in the day. The humidity is high and brutal if you are not used to it.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and his horse Vern was very sweet! Thank you for comfortable and memorable tour! Also we had our 10mth old with us, and we're able to leave the stroller at the barn. They were very accommodating!

My daughter and I really enjoyed the entire experience. We "won the lottery" and got to see Rainbow Row. Really great to hear history and our female guide was wonderful! Thought it would be a little hokey but nah... it was cool, and we got to share all the info with the other half of the family that went to the USS Yorktown instead, and remembered so many details, as they were shared to us so well. :)
