The ride was comfortable, even on a warm morning (suggest early tours during summer months), and the treatment of all the carriage horses was heartwarming and impressive.
Whenever my husband and I travel to a new city that offers carriage tours, we have found that by taking the tour it is a great way to learn about the city and discover where we want to go after the tour.

Our guide, Dana, was very personal and highly informative about the buildings, the history, and the city regulations of the carriage tours.
He gave us an insider view of modern peninsula life, including the real estate market, gardening, historical preservation, and the unfortunate debate of the future of the carriage tours in Charleston.

Linda's tour is informative, with some subtle humor-none of the kitschy, over-done humor usually found on tours.
Jini at Ashley on the Cooper Walking Tours was the very best I've ever seen.

It appeared that Charleston Walking Tours schedules guides based on the number of people who had made reservations, so there were only 8 in our group, which made it very easy to hear our guide.
I have taken countless carriage tours over the years, and this by far was the best tour I have ever taken in Charleston.

Geordie did an amazing job of making sure everyone understood without loosing anyone's interest, including ourselves who had been on several tours already.
We are locals and when we have guests come from out of town we get to be tourists and most of our guests have wanted to do ghost tours.

I only realized that recently when we took three food tours in three different cities and found ourselves comparing each of those tours to the tour we took with Hoon on Upper King Street.
We have done other food tours in other cities and always find them to be a great experience and very helpful in finding out where to go for good food in a new place.

When we arrived at each destination, the tours were just waiting for us and ready to whisk us away whether by carriage, boat, or just for the tour of the Boone Hall Plantation.
Next we were bussed to Charleston Harbor Tours on the Carolina Belle, which included a box lunch provided by Teds Butcherblock.

The historic district is so large that you could take several tours and see new areas/hear new historical facts each time.
While the private tours are much more expensive, we enjoyed the personal attention and un crowded coach.
