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 covered, open-sided carriage as your guide regales you with stories and fun facts from the Holy City’s long history.
What to Expect
Arrive at a centrally located stable in downtown Charleston at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time. After meeting the horses, board a comfortable carriage and begin to make your way through the heart of the city. The carriage is covered to protect from the sun but open on the sides for easy viewing.

Tour through 20 blocks of the Charleston historic district, visiting top sites such as City Market, the Battery, and Rainbow Row. Your guide fills you in Charleston history—from its early days as a small colony in 1670 to its recent revival—and exemplifies the South’s distinct humor and charm.

The 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.

Our time in Charleston was limited, and the heat was terrible, so we opted to take a carriage ride. We had always heard that Charleston was lovely, but really didn't see it until this tour. Our driver, Eric, was funny and informative, and our horse,...More

Great way to see Historic Charleston!

Our tour guide Patrick was friendly and well-versed in Charleston history. He shared stories of the past, educated us about the different styles of architecture, and amused us with his interactions with Carson the horse.

A disappointment

Really think we would have enjoyed this much more with a different driver. Ours was quick to tell us he had a history degree so he knew a lot. I think he thought he was amusing but instead he came off as arrogant and incredibly...More

No, there is no guarantee what route you receive. It is drawn by luck when your tour departs.

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