We had a great time learning about the history of the town! Our guide was John and our horse was Bill! John Was great at explaining and had a wonderful since of humor! I recommend doing this a least once!
Follow the history of the South Carolina port city of Charleston, which dates back more than 300 years, on a horse-drawn carriage tour. Save time by seeing the main highlights of the city’s past, including those from the Civil War era, from a comfortable perch as you travel across 30 blocks of the historic district.
For this tour of South Carolina’s oldest city, arrive at the Old South Carriage Company at 14 Anson Street about 15 minutes before your scheduled tour time to check in.
Climb into a carriage led by a horse and guide. The horse pulling your carriage is the same kind of draft horse that worked American farms in the 1800s, adding to the authenticity.
During the tour, your carriage whisks through 30 blocks of the city’s historic area, about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers). Pass by antebellum mansions, old churches, and historical homes, such as the former residence of South Carolina governor William Aiken Jr. Your guide revisits more than 300 years of history, and you’ll learn about the city’s founding and its role in the Civil War. Cover the historical district without getting tired from walking or having to arrange transportation.
Your tour ends back at Old South Carriage Company.
