In the last post, we discussed some compelling reasons why any history buff will enjoy a ride in a horse carriage tour of Charleston. However, understanding the depth of knowledge our tour guides have can help you make the best decision for your sight-seeing and history-related activities. There are so many historical sites in Charleston, and it can be tough to see everything in one visit.
Here are just a few more compelling reasons to urge the history buff in your life to participate in a Charleston horse carriage tour.
High Caliber of History Expertise
Let’s be honest — a tour guide isn’t the only place you can get information about Charleston’s exciting history. But at the same time, how interesting is reading about something that happened 100 years ago on Wikipedia? Any true history buff knows the experience relies on getting up-close and personal with some of these historic locations and monuments. To see these famous landmarks in person is an experience that no online resource can even come close to replicating.
And for anyone interested in U.S. history, there are few cities better than Charleston, South Carolina. This iconic American city played a vital role in the U.S. Civil War, but its history stretches back to the earliest days of the colonies.
Better Fact Retention
This is by no means an absolute, but many people retain facts and other information more precisely when hearing them rather than reading them. And the retention rate only increases when you have a visual memory to go with the knowledge itself. Taking a horse carriage tour in a city as historic as Charleston will leave you with so much fascinating knowledge that you just can’t get from a Civil War book. You’ll feel like you should be earning college credit!
Unmatched Historical Expertise
Finally, the biggest advantage carriage tours provide history buffs is the unique and one-of-a-kind knowledge that these tour guides have to offer. Not only can they provide you with even the smallest details about any given aspect of Charleston’s historical locations, but they’ll leave you with the perfect amount of supplemental knowledge to fill in any gaps. And because you get to see these locations up close and personal, you will be fully engaged and blown away by the scenery at the same time. There’s truly nothing else like it.
Still not convinced? Make a reservation today and feel free to put your tour guide to the test! Ask them any question you can possibly think of regarding one of Charleston’s most famous landmarks, Civil War history, or past events. Charleston attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, and tour guides never get tired of answering questions from eager visitors, whether they’re absolute beginners or full-on history buffs.
