We loved the tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and funny. We were shown areas that we would not have seen if we walked around on our own. A great way to see many historic properties.
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.
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.

We had a great time on this tour, We had a spirited horse pulling our carriage! Our tour guide was very knowledgable and quite funny! The buildings, architecture and local history is amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour if you visit.
After having taken a walking tour (which was incredibly informative...but limited in geographical range...), it was great to take a carriage tour: equally informative, but with added geographical range. Al was terrific...and my wife assured me that the horses were well cared for and happy:)...More
