Charleston Carriage Tours

Charleston Carriage Historic Tours

Palmetto Carriage Works is the oldest carriage tour company in Charleston, and has developed the greatest carriage experience in the city! A Palmetto Carriage tour offers a blend of knowledge, wit, humor and history, and is exciting and ever changing, a seamless fusion of 19th century conveyance in a 21st century city.

From the ground crew that assists in loading the carriage to the guides that lead the tour, our personnel is the most experienced in the industry. Carriages load and unload in the Big Red Barn, ensuring you have a shady place to wait in the summertime and can also interact with our animals, purchase drinks or snacks, or use the restroom before the tour.
