See the historic city of Charleston from a historic transportation method—by horse-drawn carriage. You’ll pass by old homes, see decorative ironwork, and learn the history behind city attractions. With a historic Charleston carriage tour departing every 30 minutes, it’s easy to fit this guided tour into your sightseeing itinerary. Plus, meeting at the stables gives you more time to interact with the horses, too.

What to Expect

For this carriage tour, meet in Charleston's historic district at 20 Anson Street, in the stable opposite Market Street, and get ready to experience the streets the same way as those of the past did—by horse-drawn carriage.

Carriages leave for this guided tour every 30 minutes, and you’ll want to check in 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time to turn in your voucher. There is a horse stable at the start of the tour, which you can explore before or after your tour.

Enjoy the views of the historic city from your carriage as your guide, licensed by the city, points out important landmarks and attractions and tells stories from the past. You’ll travel through Charleston’s historic district and cover three to four miles (4.8 to 6.4 kilometers) of its scenic streets.

Your Charleston historical tour ends back where it started—at 20 Anson Street.

Great time in Old Charleston

My wife and I had a terrific time riding with Dale and Jerry (the horse). So much interesting information and a comfortable ride. The rest of the guests were friendly and Dale did a great job helping everyone feel like part of the ride! Visited...More

We purchased tickets the same day and took a look around the city, then came back. There are specific time slots, so you should be able to return later.

Yes, ours went by there. However, the routes are regulated by the city and you really don’t know exactly where they will take you until the driver stops and picks up his route card.
