Overview
A carriage tour of downtown Charleston takes you to the city’s top historic sites in a short amount of time—perfect for first-time visitors. Stay out of the sun without missing a sight in the open-sided carriage as your guide regales you with stories and fun facts from the Holy City’s 200-year history.
What to Expect
After meeting the horses at a centrally located stable in Charleston’s downtown district, board a comfortable carriage and begin to make your way through the heart of the Holy City. Unlike walking tours of downtown, horse and carriage tours cover more ground and keep you out of the sun—a non-negotiable for most summertime visitors.

Tour through 20 blocks of the Charleston historic district, visiting top sites like the City Market, the Battery, or Rainbow Row. Your guide fills you in on over 200 years of Charleston history—from its early days as a small colony to its recent revival—and exemplifies the South’s distinct humor and charm.

Tour concludes at the Old Brick Barn, the oldest active stable in the city and a good jumping off point for the rest of your day’s exploration.

Great Ride

Really enjoyed our carriage ride. Walked right up and got on without a reservation. Our tour went through residential areas, but not the high end mansion at the south end. Still a great tour with good info. Our guide did a good job.

A little white lottery ball determines what area of the historic district you will see.

Charleston manages its carriage rides by the lottery system. You get on a wagon and go a block when a guy pulls out a little white ball with a number on it. That number is placed on the carriage and that determines which area the...More

Fun and Interesting Tour of Charleston

We toured some of historic Charleston with Classic Carriage Works. Our guide/driver was fun and informative throughout the trip. I also appreciated that we were given information about how well the horses used to pull the carriages were treated. My only disappointment was that the...More

You can...if you don’t mind getting a little wet. Carriages have roofs.
