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.

RoRo, our driver, and Tom, our horse, made a great team. RoRo shared stories and information about historic Charleston. She was full of enthusiasm and seemed to really enjoy her job. Tom, though quieter, was amazing in his own right, seeming to know just what to do and where to go. He would pull to the side of the street to allow a car to pass, or wait for Ro's go ahead at intersections (even though we are pretty certain he can understand traffic signals). Back at the barn, the horses appeared to be well taken care of. We love the fact that they are rotated out to Sugah Cain Plantation, where they can enjoy some time off.
