Guide contradicted his own info and gave inaccurate info more than once. Did not share a lot about Charleston history but just gave some "facts" here and there about multiple things. Some stuff sounded made up. Horse's shoe came loose midway and he said we needed to go back to barn but then took several detours on the way back. Made fun of people that would tell him the shoe was loose-we had 15 people and he said his record was 20. Evidently this happens quite a bit. It was sad, embarrassing to be riding it that way and there was no compassion given to the horse. Carrier said this had just happened to this horse on same foot and then when asked said it didn't hurt them-like wearing a bad pair of flip flops. Well-guess what, walking miles in a bad pair of flip flops hurts! Poor Pickney!

My husband and I had a great time on our carriage tour. I don't remember our tour guide's name, but I know she is a high school history teacher. She was very knowledgeable. She adds in a few jokes here and there. I will definitely encourage you to take a ride on this carriage if you are visiting Charleston. 4/8/2021

We had a great tour guide and a very positive check-in experience. They were very cautious in how they met Covid restrictions and we appreciated that everyone wore masks. However, it was very hard to hear the history and it was hard to see the landscape and historical homes past the plastic put up between each row. We noticed the other carriage ride companies did not have the plastic and if we book again we would enjoy the experience much more without that particular barrier.

A good way to see Charleston and acquaint yourself with its history and see the sights that you may want to go back and visit in your own time. The guide showed his knowledge with humour as well as trying to manage a frisky horse.
