Tour description

Packed full of history and charm, your one-hour tour with Charleston Carriage Works will expose fascinating stories of Charleston’s pivotal moments and unique culture. The experience will leave you falling in love with this breathtaking city just as so many have before you.  Boarding adjacent to Market Street, you will start in our stable where you can visit with our horses and then ride along in one of our modern custom carriages to see the sights of Charleston in style. Designed to be lighter and more comfortable than others in town, our garnet and black 16-passenger carriages enable our stunning draft horses to enjoy the tour as much as you will!

For centuries Charleston Carriage Works LLC has been a hub of culture, class, charm, and national history. The British settled here in 1670 and quickly established her as one of the most important cities in America. As years passed, Charleston thrived and evolved all while keeping her unique personality.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. Charleston has it all. And we'd love to introduce her to you with a Carriage Tour experience that is classic and unique as she.  Each of our tours is an hour long and covers 3-4 miles of Charleston’s residential Historic District. They are narrated by some of Charleston’s best city-licensed tour guides who are happy to share their local insight with you. Tours load and depart about every 30 minutes from our stable at 20 Anson Street and a restroom is available for our customers.Horses and carriages are an integral part of Charleston's history and there is something magical about touring the city the same way people have done for over 300 years.  We will exceed your expectations!
