Not only did our carriage ride begin on time, we also drew the best carriage route and were able to see Rainbow Row. I was unaware of how the city of Charleston requires a drawing system so that all of the carriages would not be on the same route holding up traffic in the city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed ourselves.

got there a few minutes early and met an older gengleman who gave us the lowdown on all the things and people that made the tour what it was. quite an educated man and very intelligent ans very well mannered. hopped up in the carrigae and away we went. it is amazing how much history has transpired since the days of the pirates and before slavery, during slavery and up through martin luther king to today. beautiful town, amazing gardens and all the history you might ever want to know about this beautiful town. can't say enough. well done!!!

I liked this tour - but there were lots of competing carriages and other tours about town ... which kept it interesting. I loved the horses and the information we got along the way, so I'm going to recommend it!

This was great and the animals well treated (they had their own personalities). The guide was great and talked the whole time about the history and buildings. Charleston is beautiful.

The staff was very friendly and professional. Our carriage left the barn on time and the barn and stable that the horses where housed in was very clean. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour lasted roughly an hour and I would gladly take another tour with this company in the future!

Our tour was everything we had hoped it would be. It was our first time visiting Charleston, and this experience really gave us the history lesson and tour of the city we were looking for. Our guide was quite knowledgeable as she has been a guide since the 80's, and she was very entertaining which we appreciated! We were shown a decent amount of the downtown area and exposed to some wonderful historical homes, churches and businesses. She even took some time to explain the extent of care the company provides their horses with which was very important to us. I would highly recommend the tour and would do it again myself to see enjoy some of the alternate tour routes they provide.

We had a nice area to wait til they called us for our time slot. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. He also explained all about the horses and how they take care of them. Being a horse person I really appreciated the great care they give these horses. He explained why we had to wait for a route and gave us an excellent tour. I appreciated that he would stop along the way to explain the history of a home or area in further detail. It was a very pleasant tour and I would do it again.

This tour was a wonderful way to see the historic parts of Charleston. Our tour guide was great and gave us lots of interesting tips about the city. He shared great stories and I felt like I learned a lot about the city. We had done a ghost tour the night before so it was fun to pass some of the same sites during the day and see them in a different light.

Informative tour with an excellent guide. Great way to enjoy historic Charleston architecture and history in leisurely comfortable fashion. Just the right amount of time to see the beautiful old homes and to learn about the residents, government, religion and city development of this fascinating place!
