Carolina Polo and Carriage Company has the capacity and training to specialize in groups of all sizes.
We offer a wide variety of services to accommodate all types of groups, reunions, and corporate functions. We look forward to providing you with the best carriage tour in Charleston.
Your tour will begin near the 200-year-old Historic City Market which spans four blocks and is one of the oldest public markets in the United States.
Highlights of your tour, depending on the zone you are given, could include the French Quarter. Your tour guide will bring the French Quarter to life with narratives of the Dock Street Theatre, the French Huguenot Church and St. Philips Church.
You can see the Miles Brewton House on King Street, known for its Georgian Architecture, the Swordgate House, and St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, which is the oldest church structure in the city.
If your guide navigates the streets nearest the Battery you might catch a glimpse of Fort Sumter and hear the fascinating history behind the attack on the fort and the beginnings of the “Late Great Unpleasantness.”
These are just a few of the sights possible on our variety of detailed routes around beautiful Charleston. All tours finish in the Historic City Market where you are free to enjoy your next Charleston adventure.
What to Expect
Our large carriages can accommodate up to 16 adults or a combination of adults and children.
Pricing is per carriage and includes a one-hour, fully narrated, horse-drawn carriage tour of the historic district. If you have a special request, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Once guests are loaded onto the carriage and cleared for departure, it is a requirement by the City of Charleston Tourism Officials that they check in at the gate prior to departure.
For tax reasons and traffic flow, the city is in charge of randomly doling out one of four routes that each carriage will receive through the historic district of Charleston. This is determined by a spin of a bingo ball machine.
The color that comes up determines the route or “zone” that particular carriage is allowed to tour.
Please check in with an attendant at the Carolina Polo & Carriage ticket office at 45 Pinckney Street 10 minutes prior to your tour start time.
