Our Story

Originally located here at 20 Anson Street, Olde Towne Carriage started providing carriage tours in Charleston, SC some 25 years ago. In October of 2013, their owner left the industry and opportunity knocked. That knock was answered by the minority partner in another local carriage company here and a few key members of his staff. They brought their combined Charleston carriage tour experience of nearly 60 years to Anson Street—and Charleston Carriage Works was born!

We immediately established this company as a reflection of our very high standards. The goal was to improve on every aspect of carriage rides and tours. Everything from staff and animals to the building and carriages has been carefully chosen to reflect a commitment to providing quality tours. This process is ongoing and will always continue. While we may be the newest carriage tour company in Charleston SC, our experienced team will ensure that your expectations will be exceeded.

The City of Charleston

For centuries, Charleston, SC has been a hub of culture, class, charm, and national history. The British settled here in 1670 and quickly established the area as one of the most important cities in America. As years passed, Charleston has thrived and evolved while keeping her unique personality.

Charleston has it all: A beautiful harbor as rich in history as it is rich in breathtaking vistas, centuries old homes kept in pristine condition by their proud residents, cobblestone streets, one-of-a-kind shops and vendors, and much more. We’d love to introduce this wonderful city to you with an authentic Carriage Tour experience that is as classic and unique as the city herself.
