A Tourist’s Guide to Charleston Carriage Rides

Interested in carriage rides in Charleston? You’ve come to the right place. Here’s our breakdown of what carriage rides are—and why you should think about booking a carriage ride on your next trip to our fair city.

Why You Should Take a Carriage Tour

The first question most people ask is: why carriage tours? We can’t explain it with just one answer, so we decided we’d use four instead:

  • A carriage tour gives you a way to sit back and relax. Too many vacations are about hustle and bustle—get to this place on time, be sure to meet up within fifteen minutes, don’t miss the bus. But a carriage tour invites you to slow down, enjoy yourself, and take in the scenery and the history of a place at something akin to walking speed—all without having to walk yourself, of course.
  • It helps to work with a knowledgeable guide. It’s great to Google everything yourself and become more knowledgeable. But an experienced guide will be able to “plug you in” to areas and facts about Charleston that you didn’t even know existed.
  • The novelty is something your kids won’t forget. There’s something different about using a horse-drawn carriage to get around; it evokes a different kind of feeling from the usual tour and is such a special experience that your kids will remember it for years to come.
  • You want to experience more than just an ordinary tour. Driving or walking around Charleston is a great way to get to know the city. But to experience a guided tour around the most historic areas, all while enjoying a leisurely stroll? That’s a new level of experience entirely.

Why Charleston Carriage Works?

Okay, maybe you’re convinced that carriage rides in Charleston are the way to go. If that’s the case, why experience your next carriage ride with Charleston Carriage Works specifically?

We have a couple of reasons. First, because you’ll have a great time.

When’s the last time you actually sat down and got to know a city? Chances are, it’s been a while since you’ve done that in your own city, let alone a vacation city. A carriage tour introduces you to areas of Charleston that you never knew existed—and never would know, unless you were to book a carriage tour and find out.
