Golden hour haunted carriage ride
Andrea_W

Took this lovely carriage tour as a last minute decision. So glad we did! Big Mike, our tour guide, and Ron, the horse, we fantastic! Big Mike’s enthusiasm of his stories made the evening. The golden hour light was perfect. And Ron, we’ll Ron was a perfect gentleman! Highly recommend. We went back to some of the places he highlighted as well. The Battery at dark was really creepy even though we didn’t have a paranormal experience, it was worth the walk!

We were so entertained and thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was exceptional and her storytelling amazing! We fell in love with the beautiful horses that carry the guests and we’re so pleased to see how well they are treated by the establishment that runs this tour group. The history and the City’s splendor really came to life doing this at night. We highly recommend this to visitors of Charleston!

If you only take one tour, do the history tour

Our tour guide was Meredith. While she was knowledgeable about ghostly history in Charleston she had to yell the whole trip due to town noise at night. A microphone would be helpful. We would have enjoyed a different guide as she was a bit condescending when her humor wasn't instantly received. Just seemed like she tried too hard...

Not very ghostly

There was nothing ghostly about this tour except that our tour guide claimed to have come back from the dead. Ben, the horse, was wonderful though.

This evening carriage tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Our guide was very knowledgeable about Charleston history and shared some great stories, not fake ghost stories. We had a great time. Highly recommend (and please remember to tip your tour guide)!
