Our tour was along the water. Shaun delivered great info and was entertaining as well. Charleston is rich in history and architectural beauty. A must see and Palmetto Carriage Works delivers.

This was our second tour with the company and we value the knowledge of the drivers and the personality they add to the conversation. If you want the skinny on Charleston, these are the people to ride with.

We came to Charleston from Michigan for our honeymoon. We wanted to be dazzled by the history and the beautiful old houses. We definitely were dazzled! Our tour guide, Myron, knew so much about the history of Charleston. He made it a wonderful experience for us. We would love to do it again.
