Matthew Toome was a great tour guide. It was a very relaxing and informative carriage ride. We saw some very beautiful buildings and residences. I highly recommend it.

Great informative tour! Mike W was funny and informative. Our family is staying in Isles of Palm and chose a cloudy day to take a tour. It was an easy ride to Charleston and learned a lot about the history of the city.

We take a carriage ride every time we visit Charleston. The carriages often take different routes, and we learn something new every time. The tour is a great way to get an overall view of this charming and historic city. It is highly recommended.
