In our opinion, Classic Carriage Works is the best carriage company in the city. They have been in operation since 1991 and have the most knowledgeable tour guides and staff, as well as some of the best looking horses on the Market. Small and large private tours are available and will take you 25-30 blocks through the residential and historic district of downtown Charleston. Tours are completely narrated and you can even meet the horses and tour the barn at the end. Convenient hotel and restaurant pick up/drop off can also be arranged.
If you are looking to get on the water while visiting Charleston, look no further than Coastal Expeditions. With three different on-the-water locations, they offer everything from Kayak Tours, Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP), Ecotours, and personalized Chartered Boat Tours. All of their options are perfect for groups/families of all sizes, and everyone can spend the day doing something different. A party or family get-together atop the Coastal Expeditions deck can also be arranged and waiting for you when you return from your activities. There is no doubting one of the best ways to experience Charleston is on the water. Spending a day with the Coastal Expeditions crew is the way to do just that.
Who wouldn't want to enjoy a locally brewed beer while learning some local history?? The Pub Tour, led by a licensed tour guide, visits a handful of historic downtown pubs sharing drinks, appetizers, and tales from Charleston's past along the way. Or, venture away from the downtown pubs and board a bus for a Brewery Tour which includes beer samples, snacks, and a behind-the-scenes tour of each brewery.
If you would rather stay indoors, enjoy a glass of wine and show off your inner Rembrandt, our friends at Wine and Design know how to show you a great time. With three different locations to choose from, they are the perfect place for bridal luncheons, bachelorette parties, outings with the kids, etc. Just let us know what you want to sip on and it will be waiting for you when you arrive. Sit back, grab a glass and a brush, and start painting!
We believe that the absolute best way to see Charleston and learn about its history is by walking through it! There are so many tiny, unknown, hidden streets and alleys that carriages and motor vehicles are forbidden to navigate. Let us book a walking tour for your group with our in-house tour guide, one of the most knowledgeable guides in the city!
