Owner description: See historic Charleston than from the vantage point of an Old South Carriage. Family owned and operated since 1983, Old South Carriage Company offers narrated hour-long tours by licensed guides, day and night. Come to our English-style stable at 14 Anson Street, just 2 blocks from The City Market and meet our friendly and professional staff. Reservations are not necessary as tours depart every 20 - 30 minutes throughout the day. A ramp leading to a platform makes boarding easy. Old South Carriage Company uses French Percherons and Belgian Draft horses. These sturdy equine employees vacation at Sugah Cain, the owner's 65-acre plantation on John's Island. For 2-3 months annually, these beautiful horses are free to run in large pastures or leisurely graze under century-old live oaks. Tours operate daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 (DST) 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (EST). ~Look for the Red Sash~ Our symbol of a quality horse-drawn carriage tour of Charleston, South Carolina.

Family consensus: the carriage tour was the highlight of our trip. There was almost an hours wait which was miserably spent in the slave’s market dealing with the suffocating heat lemonade from there = delicious). Lori was our driver, Sammy our horse. She gave a nice intro re: the horses and their care and then the 1 hour tour around Charleston (rainbow row, Calhoun mansion, battery row) which was very informative and we returned the next day to tour some of the houses we passed
