Charleston’s Old South Carriage Historic Tour

Offering a novel and fun-filled way to explore Charleston and the rich history of “the Holy City,” Old South Carriage Company runs a variety of tours using their old-fashioned style horse-drawn carriages. Learn more about Charleston carriage tours below!

A Fascinating Tour You Won’t Want to Miss

The Historic Residential Tour through Old South Carriage Company is a fantastic way to experience the many historic mansions, gardens, and churches that have called Charleston home since before the Civil War.

With experienced, professional guides in red waist sashes steering your carriage and its Belgian or Percheron draft horse while giving insight and facts into over three hundred years of Charleston history, this in-depth tour covers over thirty blocks and two and a half miles of historic Charleston over the course of an hour. It’s the perfect way to learn more about antebellum and post-Civil War life in Charleston!

The carriages used on these tours have been upgraded from classic wooden carriages to carbon-fiber composite material for greater durability and lighter weight for the horses. Old South Carriage Company’s carriages comfortably accommodate anywhere from four to sixteen passengers, depending on the style used for the carriage tours in Charleston.

Tickets for the Historic Residential Tour are priced at $16.00 for children ages four to eleven years old and $26.00 for adults. Children ages three and under are free of charge.

While this tour is incredibly family-friendly, Old South Carriage Company does provide a child-free, adults-only version of the Historic Residential Tour for those who want to experience the city without the possible distraction of children. The price for the Child-Free Historic Tour is $30.00 per adult. The content of the child-free tour is the same (i.e. not R-rated), only without passengers under the age of eighteen.

Old South Carriage Company operates their Historic Residential Tour and other tours daily, with the exception of Christmas Day and extreme weather conditions. Seasonal hours vary. The company’s operational tour hours last from 10:00am to 4:00pm during the months of January and February. During March through December, Old South Carriage Company is open from 9:00am until 5:00pm.
