A nice tour filled with non-stop history and information about Charleston. John was a wealth of information. While Charleston is very walkable, this gives you a nice background. Highly recommend this

Our first time in Charleston and we decided a carriage ride was a must. Patrick was our guide and very enthusiastic, entertaining and informative. Carson was our horse, gorgeous and well taken care of. We had a great time. Would definitely recommend.
