    Make your own way to central Charleston to begin your tour in the early evening.

    Meet your guide and the team of mules that gently pull your carriage around the heart of Charleston.

    Head into downtown Charleston's Commercial District and hear the history of the buildings along the route. Pass the Old Exchange Building, once visited by George Washington, and learn about the architecture of several historic churches. Continue through Waterfront Park, which is situated on the Cooper River before returning to your starting point to end your tour.
