What You'll Get
A city is a place of tremendous variety, usually constructed upon rock ‘n’ roll. Plumb the secret depths of Charleston with today's Groupon: for $19, you get two tickets to a one-hour carriage tour from Olde Towne Carriage Company (up to a $40 value).
Providing tours of Charleston for more than 30 years, Olde Towne Carriage Company guides customers along an illuminating one-hour tour of the Holy City in a horse-drawn carriage. Let the dynamic duo of a licensed, knowledgeable guide and reliable animal chauffer point out notable locales like an impressively wizened centaur. During the tour, eyes can feast on comely historical homes, beautiful gardens, and the regal storm drains of the Old Market area. Become acquainted with the Old Walled City and numerous churches while marveling at the grand architecture and scanning 300-year-old streets for gold bullion.
During February, tours depart Friday through Sunday in one-hour intervals between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.; from March on, tours will be available seven days a week. Each group-size carriage can hold up to 15 guests, ensuring an intimate sightseeing experience that’s much more enjoyable than curling up into the wheel well of a passing bus.
