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.

Patrick and Franklin

Charleston’s best carriage tour with the eloquent,fun, informative and humorous Patrick and supported so ably by the wonderful powerhorse Franklin. As Australians visiting this gorgeous southern city, it provided an historic rhetoric which is unsurpassed.

Wonderful time!

Classic Carriage Works - we had an excellent tour. Tours are randomly assigned by a city department so you don't know where you are going until you're driver draws the location. I am certain there is no bad draw as the entire city is amazing....More

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