There’s no better way to see historic Charleston than from the vantage point of an Old South carriage. Family owned and operated since 1983, Old South Carriage Company offers fully narrated hour-long tours by licensed guides wearing the red sash - our symbol of quality and your assurance of a great tour. Come to our English-style stable at 14 Anson St, just 2 blocks from the City Market, and meet our friendly and professional staff. You can order tickets ahead of time online or walk in - tours depart every 20-30 minutes throughout the day. A ramp leading to a platform makes boarding easy.

Old South Carriage Company uses French Percherons and Belgian draft horses. These sturdy employees vacation at Sugah Cain, Old South’s 65-acre plantation on John’s Island. For 2-3 months annually, these beautiful horses are free to run in large pastures or leisurely graze under century-old live oaks.

Tours operate daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (DST) 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (EST).

  • My husband and I took a tour Tuesday afternoon (9/27/2022). From the beginning at check in to the end of the tour, it was a very pleasant experience! Hunter was our guide and Rex was our beautiful Belgian Draft horse! Hunter was very engaging, funny and very knowledgeable about the city! I would recommend the Old South Carriage tours, if you are considering one and definitely ask for Hunter and Rex!
  • “Moose” our ride and Bill (Billy the Kid) our carriage driver were awesome!!! Took the tour on 10/04 at 9:45am. The morning was crisp (cool) and sunny. ☀️ Great information about the history of Charleston! Just a really fun hour around the city. Highly recommend 👍🏻😀
