A relaxed and informative way to get an introduction to historic Charleston. Because of the zone system used to regulate carriage traffic in the city you’ll only get a portion of all that’s there to see in one ride. Nevertheless, our guide Matt was knowledgeable and we enjoyed the experience. Complement this with a self guided walking tour and you’re set.

After walking Charleston for several hours, our one hour private carriage ride was relaxing, fun and informative. We would definitely do this again in the future. Bubba, our guide was great along with Clementine our four legged friend.

Our tour guide, Dana, was exceptional. The tour was great, although a little cramped in the seats for us plus size people! LOL We highly recommend this tour. Granted, this is the only carriage tour we took while in Charleston, but I doubt any of the others could be better!
