Excellant Tour and Tour Guide. Tour Guide really knew the History of the area we rode thru. This was our 2nd. Tour with Palmetto Carriage Works and we will do another the next time we spend a few nights in Charleston.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The carriage driver had a dry sense of humor like we have, so we thought he was funny and entertaining. He shared a ton of history about Charleston. I would have liked a longer tour but understand the restraints with the live animals. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of this great southern town.

Guide had very good knowledge and the ability to convey it in simple but informative way, maybe the best hour we spent in Charleston. Well worth the time and price. PatrickGuide and TekBelgian Draft Horse were great.
