We chose a Civil War tour for our carriage ride and it could not have been better. Although I cannot remember the guide's name (nice gentleman with a beard), our horse was Elwood (hard to forget that!). We are history buffs, so it was nice to listen to someone with a real knowledge of the Civil War in Charleston. The other nice things is that the carriage itself was not crowded with a lot of people -- but I hope this does not deter the company from continuing the Civil War tours. It was very enjoyable.
