Horse carriage tour with Todd as our very knowledgeable and personable driver and tour guide. It was well worth the $23 for the one hour tour. We have been to Charleston many times but learned some incredible history and facts on this tour. And kudos to Carson, who pulled us around Charleston.

We did the civil war tour while visiting Charleston. Matt was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and kept it interesting for the entire tour. I would gladly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

We really enjoyed our carriage ride through Charleston, despite both oppressive heat and pouring rain during the hour! We were interested to learn that our tour route is dictated by a lottery (literally a ball in a cage) when you leave. That's not specific to this company - that's how the city runs all the carriage tours. We ended up on route 1 and had a great time. If you're lucky enough to have Patrick as your tour guide, you are guaranteed to have fun! He had fantastic history, great stories, and plenty of jokes. The carriage itself was well maintained and comfortable. Shout out to our horse, Larry, for a great job too. It was our favorite part of Charleston and we highly recommend!

As all Carriages are highly regulated by the city and the state there is not much difference, neiter in the price nor in th erout, approach or anything else BUT check out who will be the driver before you go as they make all the difference and as there are no feedbacks that can be given nor any indication that the companies are interested in feedbacks these driver will make the difference. The one we had today was one of the 'wrong kind'. Neither knowlegable, nor interested funny or at least entertaining...therefore again the advice to check before you buy....

Charleston is beautiful. Taking a carriage tour is a good way to see the old city area. You get see the sites without walking everywhere. The line was a little long to board our carriage. The smell while waiting is not a pleasant one. That is just part of the process. The guides truly make any tour. Ours was fine, not great, but not bad either. For a first timer to the city I would recommend taking a carriage tour.
