Not scary at all so if you have small kids this is the tour for you.
They assign your seats, but try for the front- a better view and you can hear more.

Best time I've had in a carriage
Grant_C, May 2023
Our driver was very animated and the cornball jokes were on point. His knowledge of Charleston's history was very impressive and I learned a ton. Our driver integrated his own personal experiences with some of the most haunted places and made for an engaging and highly entertaining time. The rest of the staff at the stables were incredibly friendly and helpful. I can't recommend this tour enough and will recommend this to anyone that is visiting Charleston. And don't be a schmuck, tip your driver.
Shannon did excellent!
Lindsay_H, May 2023

Sisters vacation
Wynette_P, May 2023
The guide was great. Would recommend for anyone that likes to hear stories of the past. Our tour was before dark but was given information of places to visit on our own
Worth the ride!
Jennifer_N, May 2023
This was a fantastic way to see the city and hear the history, with some fun stories thrown in along the way. Shannon was an absolute hoot of a host and Ron the horse was a pro.
Fun Evening Adventure
Amanda_E, May 2023
We had the sweetest horse named Rowdy. My sailor loved the experience. The guide was very informative and fun.
Great history lesson
Mitchell_M, May 2023
Our guide, Devon, kept us engaged from start to finish. He did a great job of explaining the history of the city, while keeping everyone intrigued. The only downside, it is more of a history lesson than a ghost tour. Now with that said, Charleston's history is pretty violent. The guide will point out areas around the city of where ghosts have been known to cause a scene.
A must do event.
Beverly_C, May 2023
Wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and funny. This is a must do for your visit to Charleston. We must say those horses are very well taken care of and are so stunning and we have owned horses our entire lives. Would recommend this carriage company anytime. Thank you, one of the best things we did in Charelston.
Perfect night adventure

We enjoyed the tour and our guide was informative cute and funny. He was a good driver too. I would recommend this tour
Sadly the carriage was the best part.
Barb_R, Apr 2023
We were disappointed. For the second most haunted city in the USA there wasn't many stories shared. For the price it wasn't worth it.. The highlight was the horse carriage ride.

Kimberly_M, Apr 2023
The most exciting/ exhilarating tour you can have on a pretty slow carriage. The tour guide Rodger and Ben the horse were amazing. I loved to learn the history behind the ghosts and the flooding and earthquakes. I really felt like it was transforming me into old Charleston. We even went to some of the places on the tour after.
Response from Host, Apr 2023

It was not what I thought...
Kelly_H, Apr 2023
It was not what I thought it was going to be was a history ride not a ghost tour Was very boring would not do it again
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience to this unfortunate circumstance of your tour. The last thing we want is anyone to have a negative experience with us. We have been giving great horse drawn carriage tours in downtown Charleston now for 40 years, I hate to hear anything less than anyone having a great time with us. Is there anything we can do to help salvage you and your guests experience with us or get you on another tour with us in the future? Scott B. Guest relations manager 843-723-9712
