The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Elwood (the horse) was equally entertaining. We had a very great time.

We had a nice time in this tour learning about the history of Charleston. My daughter and I booked it last min but we enjoyed it.

Our tour guide, Fox, was fantastic! His horse, Kent, was also great as traffic caused some distractions but he stayed under Fox’s capable guidance. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history, seeing the sights and relaxing during our ride.

One of the best ways to see the city while learning pieces of history! The horses are beautiful and appear to be well cared for. Your takes an hour and there’s 5 different routes that the tours take which are assigned by random draw. The tour guides are very informative and share lots of stories- new and old.

The tour guide was awesome! I’m sorry that I didn’t catch his name. But the horse was named Elwood. It was a great time. I’d definitely recommend it to friends and I’d go again myself.
