Not scary at all so if you have small kids this is the tour for you.
They assign your seats, but try for the front- a better view and you can hear more.

Absolute must for those who love the spooky things and want to learn about the history of Charleston!
Isabel_V, Jul 2022
We loved the haunted carriage tour and think it’s an absolute must on your list of things to do in Charleston, especially if you love the spooky stuff like us. Our tour guide Madison was super sweet, engaging and knowledgeable. And she did a great job telling us about the spooky history while also handling the horse- awesome multitasking! I loved how she told us some things to look up for reference about the stories and shared where we could find additional information. Our horse Ron was also the best, he was so beautiful and did a great job guiding us through the city. Definitely don’t pass up this ghost tour on your trip, The Old Carolina Carriage Company definitely knows what they’re doing and if you’re lucky you might get to meet their barn kitty too! :)
Fun Ghostly History
Martha_V, Mar 2022
Relaxing way to see a little of historic, Charleston. It was a lot of fun riding in the horse drawn carriage, listening to ghost tales from yesteryear, and imagining what, Charleston was like when Pirates, British Soldiers, earthquakes, Poe, Cholera, and, the Civil War was being fought in the, "Holy City".
