The city regulates all horse-drawn carriages in Charleston. As your carriage approaches the check-in point, it will be assigned a specific route through a randomized lottery system. Whatever route you take, you are sure to see beautiful sights while our guides provide a unique and in-depth glimpse into the history of Charleston.
