The carriage was raggedy; the tour was decent but he seemed to enjoy telling the more lurid side of history. Maybe that’s popular but I’ve been on 3 tours from other companies that were more informative.

David was a great tour guide and Chico the horse kept us giggling every time he stopped to eat the street plants. This is a great way to spend an hour in Charleston and see the old style homes and streets.

The driver was very knowledgeable and fun too. Recommend these tours. Wish we could have taken more as each tour is covers different parts of the downtown area. Did these in Wilmington, NC too and they are great.
