This carriage tour was absolutely fantastic! They really take care of their horses and stop if the temperature gets above 91° - so go early! Beaufort has a lot of cool history and you actually see most of it on the carriage ride. Charleston's carriage rides may be more iconic, however this company has more accurate information, horses aren't drugged up to stay calm (or at least not as much as Charleston's) and you get headphones so you'll for sure hear everything your guide says! This is a must-do for HHI vacationers and those who are traveling up the coast following Colonial and Civil War History - it all connects together!
