All the companies are pretty much the same and offer quality tours using licensed guides. It all depends upon the particular guide to make it over the top and that would be hard to predict who would be where and when.

All the tours start at the same place. Where you will go is chosen by a lottery method which is conducted by the City of Charleston, to help prevent traffic back-ups in certain locations.

We've been in several different directions and have enjoyed them all.

this will be our first trip into Charleston. Where do we catch the carriage rides? Is there easy parking for there? We are looking to come the middle of October, during the week.

All the carriage tours leave from the middle of the Historic Market area. There are a few surface lots close-by and lots of parking garages.

Here's a map that may help you...

The Market area is just to the left of where the Cruise Ship Terminal is shown.
