We lucked out and got the Rainbow Row tour, and learned so much from Dana, our guide. She was funny and informative, and our horse, O'Malley, was great as well. We took an 11am tour in June, and things definitely started heating up by then,...More

We had a great experience! Even though it was a hot day it was very entertaining. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. Rhyme and Reason, the mules that pulled us, were very well behaved. We learned so much about Charleston.

I had bottled water with me. There is a refreshment area where you can purchase drinks and restrooms located in the barn. There are no stops on the tour.
