Historic Charleston Tours by Carriage

Quick: name a relaxing vacation event that’s informative, entertaining and memorable. Having trouble? That’s understandable. After all, it’s rare to find vacation events that the entire family will enjoy together. As one of the top-rated activities to do in all of Charleston, historic Charleston tours by carriage might just be the exception!

Don’t believe us? Here are a few reasons top reasons to experience a carriage tour in Charleston today!


Be honest: in how many other places can you bring together up to 16 people in a group and have them all sit and relax together? When you think of it, let us know. Vacationing with a large or even a small group can sometimes feel like herding cats, which is why the naturally relaxing clip-clop of a historic Charleston tour by carriage is such a nice respite.

In addition to the comfortable seating and our heavy draught horses, the overall carriage experience is marked by fresh air and a quieter take on Charleston. It’s naturally relaxing, which makes it equally great for kids as it is for adults.



Because we tour through Charleston’s historic district, there’s no shortage of history to be enjoyed. We cover such eras as the colonial period, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and beyond. Many of the sites you’ll see are kept historically accurate to their respective periods. Experiencing all of these sights in a carriage is a bit like taking a trip back in time.

Historic sight-seeing is fantastic, of course, but it’s enhanced by the old-time experience of a tour by carriage. It’s a way of transporting your tour group with more than just a simple visit. It’s like having a little slice of life from old Charleston for your very own.


Our tours aren’t there just to enjoy a little bit of scenery—though there’s plenty of that to go around. Our tour guides also engage every member of your group so that you feel like you’re part of something more than a carriage ride. You’re also experiencing history.

That engagement is something you won’t get simply by visiting the sites and looking at them for yourselves. Unless you want to do the research necessary to be your own tour guide. Instead, our carriage rides are aimed at engaging every one of our guests with something interesting that they might not have known before. You’ll likely hear a great joke or two also!



Finally, we come to one of the best reasons to experience historic Charleston tours: the city itself. Few cities in the U.S. have the history or the atmosphere of Charleston—and few are so perfectly-suited for tours by carriage. If you want to experience the beauty and rich history of one of America’s first cities for yourself, there’s only one way to do it: a carriage ride.
