Step back in time with an authentic ride in a horse-drawn carriage through approximately 25-30 blocks of narrow streets in the Historic District of Charleston that were created in 1670.

Pass by antebellum homes, mansions, churches and office buildings displaying a wide variety of 18th and 19th century architecture including examples from the Greek Revival and Federal periods.

You will also have the opportunity to see numerous Single houses dotting the area; these houses have a width the size of a single room with a long side entrance and double piazzas, or porches.

Along the way your guide will share many fascinating stories, secrets and fun facts about the history, life and people in this Holy City.

Admire the many well-manicured gardens and tranquil parks this city is known for and observe the locals as they go about their daily routines.

This small group tour is only a 1 hour long ride and a must-do for those who are first time visitors or for those returning that have yet to immerse themselves in the charm of this culture-rich city. This is your chance for a memorable overview of historical Charleston so don't miss out, sign up today.

Really enjoyed the buggy ride through the streets of Charleston. The guide was very knowledgeable about the city and was very clear in her sharing that knowledge with us. Thanks
