This after-hours tour covers 15 blocks, mostly within the original city's boundaries. As your licensed tour guide expounds on Charleston's 350-year history, ride past the Powder Magazine (oldest building), the Circular Congregational Church with the oldest graveyard in the city, and the Four Corners of Law.
Turn onto Broad St. taking you on one of the oldest trading routes through the city, passing the Old Exchange Building, Waterfront Park with its prominent Pineapple Fountain, and the historic City Market. 

The carriage is pulled by the strongest working draft horses! These are the same kinds of draft horses that worked on American farms in the early 1800s.

Interesting tour of old Charleston.

We had a great time with Elliot the guide and Chip the horse! Elliot is very knowledgeable about Charleston's history and provided valuable commentary as we rode through the streets. We will go back☺️
