So disappointed with this carriage company......we were misinformed before arriving for our tour about the cost of our private tour and when I asked the owners wife to do the right thing and credit me the difference (I had paid ahead of time but was told I could get a refund) she not only refused but also didn't tell me...

Rode around a few blocks behind a horse with a virtually silent guide. I asked him to please tell us history and stories and he said oh he would until we wished he would stop. But he only shared a few sentences and was clearly not engaged. The couple beside us (it was a full carriage) also felt it was... More

Had a great time...the tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining, it was conveniently located as it is right in the middle of the market area, the ride was comfortable and the price was reasonable. Would highly... More

A horse drawn carriage is a must whether you're a first-time visitor or a regular, especially for different times of the year.

Had a wonderful tour of historical downtown Charleston. Our tour guide Analissa was awesome. I was skeptical at first because I was concerned about the horses but Analissa explained how the city ensures the horses are not overworked or mistreated. The city tracks how long each horse is out for the day. We were overwhelmed by the beautiful homes on... More

We recently had a private tour by Mike(I believe) that was his name. His Mom runs the office scheduling details, she was very nice also. Mike was very interesting and very factual. He entertained us for 1 hour. The tour was very interesting and informative. I learned a lot from Mike. Charleston is very interesting, but you can not even... More
