Very enjoyable. Our guide was great. Paul Newman was the sweetest. I am so glad they really treat the horses well. The next day we were in Charleston and I was appalled by the treatment of the horses there.

Very knowledgeable guides and a fun tour of this little historic city. The drivers are compassionate about the horses, and the tour is comfortable and informative. Try the ghost tours in October!

You can buy your tickets ahead of time online - that’s what we did. Our driver was an excellent guide, tipping her is recommended.($23 ticket-plus tip) It’s a lovely historic tour, so worth it! Enjoy!
