Our tour guide Patrick was friendly and well-versed in Charleston history. He shared stories of the past, educated us about the different styles of architecture, and amused us with his interactions with Carson the horse.

A low key, historical up close tour of Charleston, in the comfort of a horse and carriage, for at least an hour. Drivers and horses are great teams to amuse and educate, and really appreciate the teamwork between man and horse. Reasonable prices......

A nice tour filled with non-stop history and information about Charleston. John was a wealth of information. While Charleston is very walkable, this gives you a nice background. Highly recommend this

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.
