Reviews of Charleston Carriage Tour of Antebellum Mansions, Churches & Gardens
Average Customer Rating: 9.1 of 10 (30 Reviews)
The carriage was a little crowded with 4 people to a row and 4 rows total. I felt a little bad for the horses because they seemed tired and listless. The stable is very small so it's unclear how much exercise the horses actually get other than walking through the city all day long. The tour guide was great - very knowledgeable and quite funny. Be careful when you walk down to where the carriage tours are because all the tour company's have people out on the street trying to get your business.

My only wish is that this would have been a longer tour. We enjoyed the scenery and our guide was very outgoing and fun.
-- Shawna Danella - Webster, FL
This is an informative tour that gave a basic overview. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We started charleston with this tour but used his recommendations for restaurants, historical sites and unique places to visit. We had a plan visiting charleston but he definitely enhanced our visit. This is a good place to start. The company was a well oiled machine, in and out but not jaded.

We really enjoyed this tour, the guide was very nice and had a good sense of humor. The only down side was a few people who would not stop talking so we could hear all of what our guide was saying.

It was something different and we enjoyed the sight-seeing tour but i disliked being in the heat and being cramped with others in the seat.

If you ever take the carriage tour, the old south carriage tour is truly the best out of all the choices.
-- Sam Bristow - Shelby, AL
The guides give a good historic tour
-- Mary Kalinauskas - Chesapeake, VA
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 passanger. The routes are given out on a round robin basis as each carriage pull up. Still a great way to experience downtown charleston though,
