The and I took this tour to check out downtown Charleston. The tour was $50 for two and they gave us a coupon book which we used for the water taxi. The wife and I both enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very informative.

The large carriages seat up to 16 people, so if you purchase group tickets you will be riding with other people. Kids 3 and under can ride on a lap for free.
