Great way to see Historic Charleston
, Jan 2021
Because of Covid, we purchased a private carriage ride through viator, and at the time I didn’t realize we were not booking through the actual company but through a third party, which caused some confusion with the attendant who had to make phone calls before we were able to go. He said it was his mistake tho. The actual tour itself was awesome! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about history and we enjoyed it very much.

Very pleasant ride, knowledgeable guide, did not know in advance that there were three routes, and which one you get is kind of a lottery. If we had a choice, we probably would have picked a different route.
