Charleston’s Old South Carriage Historic Horse & Carriage Tour

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Charleston. The booking process was efficient. From the time that we arrived for the ride everyone was so friendly. Our driver was the best and certainly made the tour very special. The horse was called Eli and is 6 years old. Our grandson was so thrilled to hear this, as he is called Eli and is 6 years old. We learned a great deal about Charleston, its history and the gorgeous houses. Thank you for doing such a good job.

Highly recommend taking this tour! My boyfriend and I were visiting Charleston for the first time and decided to choose this carriage company to book a tour. Tom (tour guide) and Eli (horse) were phenomenal hosts! Tom is an 11th generation restoration carpenter and I don't think we would have learned as much about the city and its architecture without him. I also truly feel they treat the horses well and as equals. Take this tour!

Jim, our equine tour guide, was impeccable. He guided us competently through the crowded streets and around clueless tourists. Jason, our human narrator, wasn’t bad either. We caught a glimpse of the intricate history of this complicated location.

Hearing the history of Charleston - the rules of the historic district and how expensive it is to live there.

My teenage sons loved it. They enjoyed the history and the tour guide. Good jokes and knowledgeable. My boys think they don’t like history but this proved them wrong.

The tour was excellent and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. We even saw some dolphins when we were down by the waterfront.
