Key Points

  • Experience 25-30 blocks of Charleston’s historic downtown district
  • See houses, gardens, mansions, churches, and parks
  • Learn about buildings, history, architecture, flora and the people that make up the “Holy City”
  • Learn everything that Charleston has to offer on a Palmetto Carriage tour


  • A limited number of passengers allowed on the carriage:
    These carriages can hold private groups of up to either 4 or 5-8 seated passengers, which include adults and any children 2 years old and older, as well as up to 2 children under the age of 2 years old who can be seated on an adult’s lap.
  • Limited availability for private carriages:
    Due to the limited amount of private carriages, the start/end time of your tour is not flexible. Your tour hour will start and end at the time you have scheduled, for this reason, we recommend that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time. If you are late your tour will still end at the designated time in order to keep the carriage on schedule.
