We ended up running late. Parking is available, but the parking lot was a few blocks away. We arrived and Classic Carriage Works had taken the time to contact us, and remind us of the reservation. When we got to the barn, they had given...More
So first of all this company charges $2 less per ticket, but they do fewer tours in order to be sure to give their guides and horses more rest - I thought was a great thing! Patrick was so funny and sometimes borderline sarcastic, but...More
I highly recommend the Slavery to Freedom tour with Dave, who is extremely knowledgeable of Charleston history. He answered all of the questions and kept the group engaged throughout the tour. Learning more about African history in America, is such an important aspect of understanding...More

The tour to take depends somewhat on your own personal preferences. If this is your first trip to Charleston, then our Charleston History Tour is a great introduction to the city. The Civil War Tour and the Slavery to Freedom Tour are both a little more in depth and focus on a particular part of the city's history. If you want to get the full experience, then you can always take all three tours! With any of these options, you are guaranteed to get a tour guide with no less than five years of experience. We are the only carriage company that can guarantee that level of professionalism.
