Having booked the combo tour, we had two excellent guides (Austin and Billy). They gave us lots of information in a humorous way. All the customer service was great. If you want either a walking tour or carriage tour (or both), definitely use Old South Carriage company!

My wife, I and two adult children had an absolutely fantastic 90 minute walking tour with Kate Abrams. We have taken other walking tours in the past and this was by far the best. Kate showed us hidden alley ways, beautiful gardens we had never seen before and shared interesting and historic facts about Charleston that only an insider would know. A former teacher, she flighted in sharing her deep knowledge of “The Holy City’s fascinating and rich history. The passion, energy and enthusiasm she brings is contagious.
A tour with Kate is a must when in Charleston.

Awesome way to learn the history of Charleston and orient yourself within the city. Perfect first full day activity. Kay our tour guide was one of the best I have ever had - informative, engaging, and ready to answer any and all questions. The time slot we selected was small (just us two and a family of 3), which made it a more personalized experience. Not sure if all afternoon sessions are like this, but might be something to consider (think we did the 130 tour).

Even though it was hot Kay did a nice job of stopping in the shade to talk whenever we could. I would definitely recommend Old South Carriage Company to anyone visiting Charleston!

We just had the best walking tour experience with what has to be the most knowledgeable and professional guide ever, Lawrence. He was so kind and willing to answer all of our questions while also keeping on task of the tour. It could not have been a better experience and if you are able to request guides-Lawrence would be the one to request!

We took a 90 minute walking tour with our 3 kids who are 7,9 and 11 years old. Kate was very knowledgeable and made it fun for the kids with interesting facts and stories. My husband is a history teacher and we both love historic places. Despite what her teenage kids think, we think Kate is super cool and informative and we would give her 10 stars if we could!! Definitely the best tour we have taken on our family vacation!

Walking tour with Don was an excellent way to start my visit to Charleston. He was so passionate about the history of Charleston. I can’t believe how fast the 90 minutes went. I am looking forward to going back to visit some of the museums and churches he pointed out. Great overview/introduction to Charleston!
