An Evening Carriage Tour Featuring Charleston's Fascinating Walled City History

Take a step back in time on a 40-minute evening carriage tour that focuses on the settlers who built Charles Towne, which was once a walled city that defended itself from pirates, the Spanish, French, and Native Americans.


Be captivated by the stories about the construction of the first English walled city in America and important events, people, and historic structures from this colonial time period.


Enjoy sites such as the oldest building in Charleston, Waterfront Park, historic churches, and more. This evening carriage tour is a perfect before-dinner excursion with your friends, family, or significant other.
