Charleston is famously one of the most historic cities in the U.S, and that history and charm are best experienced as it was in days past - aboard a horse-drawn carriage tour as you enjoy the beautiful sights of the city! This experience will be fun for the whole family to enjoy as you see the popular sights in the area in a historic and classic way.

Get in a time machine and go back to Colonial times and be shown three centuries of history, including churches, antebellum mansions, and other unforgettable sights. Tour sights vary on each trip on which route is taken, so there could always be something new every time you head out on these amazing carriage tours. Your tour guide with Old South Carriage will be dressed in Confederate regalia and will inform and entertain you with lore, humor, and historical facts as you drive through the city in a surrey-style carriage. You will learn valuable information while having an amazing time. These carriages feature four rows of seats and canopy tops to provide comfort and protection from the elements, so their carriage ride is always perfect!

The tour has two different options to choose from for a wonderful experience. Head out during the day for a one-hour tour of the city in the fun carriage ride. Or, explore the city at dusk on the 40-minute Haunted Carriage Evening Ride where you can hear stories of ghosts and legends that surround this city while seeing sights of haunted buildings and graveyards for a spooky and historic experience.

There are many interesting sights nearby to see and discover before and after your tour. Clean restrooms and a DVD showing are available while you wait for your carriage. A ramp and platform system is used to load the carriages, so the boarding process is very easy. Tour Charleston the best way - with this Old South Carriage Company tour!

"This tour was great."
This tour was great. But be aware that the tour takes different routes, controlled by the local authorities. After you have started the tour, the 'carriage police' give the driver the route they must take. The carriage company has no control over this, and neither do you as the passenger. The routes are given out on a round robin basis as each carriage pull up. Still a great way to experience downtown charleston though,
