This tour was great! Our guide was amazing and it was a beautiful day to go on a carriage tour. We will definitely come back and do another one and maybe a ghost tour.

Outstanding carriage ride. Learned a lot about the history of Charleston and the ride was a lot of fun. The guide, RoRo was fantastic, very nice, funny and knew her stuff. Finn, our horse guide was also fantastic. He, along with RoRo kept us safe from the traffic. He deserves lots of extra treats! I moved here a year ago and have lots of friends coming to visit. We will definitely be using this company again.

We were introduced to the company in a visit in early 2020 when visiting. Later that year we moved to Summerville, SC and every time family or friend visit a visit to Charleston is rewarded by visit to Charleston's Old South Carriage for a tour. We now have been on all five of the tours and simply love them.

I was hesitant to do this because of recent news on how the horses are treated but they do tell you how they are taken care of which made me feel better. The lady who conducted our food tour also talked to us about the horses care. Definitely a great tour. 4 to a seat when you are a larger person is uncomfortable though and in peak season they are trying to get as many people in as possible. Great information provided during the tour.

Our guide Zack was fantastic. We were looking to ground ourselves with the layout and local sites. We got that and so much more. Zack was extremely knowledgeable about people, places, architecture, history, and so much valuable nuance. At the end we felt we were a part of the inner workings of this charming city. We definitely recommend the trip.
