First you have to understand that History is very important in Charleston. So the wisdom of the father's before us made Tours a first class operation. Tight. In order to be Licensed by the City of Charleston one must undergo a rigid course with a 600 plus page text, and rigorous tests, both written and oral. Once you are ready to venture out into the most beautifully preserved city in the United States rivaling any in the world, then the Manual will guide you to the guide.
In 1978, there were two carriage companies with twelve amongst them. There are over 7 companies now with easily over a 100 carriages on the street. Carriages are only allowed in certain sections of the city. The city is split into three sections. One does not know which section one is going until the carriage goes to the gatekeeper and is directed into the proper zone. Fear not. The entire peninsula is an historic district with a myriad of sights and stories to marvel.
Please be aware of the weather when thinking about going on a carriage ride for an extended time.
