About Old South Carriage Company

A Rich History Rooted In Providing The Best Tours In Charleston
We’ve been family owned and operated since 1983 when founder David Compton started touring guests with just three horses and a single carriage. Now, nearly 40 years later, we’ve given carriage tours in Charleston, SC to thousands of guests from all over the world.

We pride ourselves on delivering an authentic, Old South experience that our guests enjoy every time they join us for a horse carriage tour. These memorable, horse-drawn carriage rides have been improved over the decades, however, with state-of-the-art carriages that are built for comfort and seat 16 passengers.

Our team has grown as well and we now have a large staff of passionate, hard-working people—including our Palmetto Guild certified guides—that help make us the premier carriage tour in Charleston.
