I am handicapped and was unsure if I would be able to get into the carriage. When we arrived, they took me aside to where they had a ladder and carriage for me to attempt to board out of sight of the public. I could get on the carriage and even though it took me longer to board, never did I feel rushed. They also offered to refund my ticket, if I couldn't board. The guide was knowledgeable, made history fun and took time to answer all of our questions. He related well to all ages (5-70) on the carriage. You also can't beat their policy of a refund of your ticket cost (plus a free tour) if they miss a starting time and you checked in at least 30 minutes early. If I ever get back to Charleston, I hope to take more of their tours!

The tour covered some historic homes and the market, but not much of other historic buildings.

I was on the 9:30 AM tour. Our tour guide was great during the tour but he was very curt and not very helpful before the tour. We showed up at 8:55 as we were supposed to check in 30 minutes before the tour. He was initially very curt with us and said that we were five minutes early and that he'd load up by the ladder. I wasn't sure if I still had to check in or not after 9 AM. Around 9:20 I went over to the wagon and asked him if I had to check in. He said that he'd be over by the ladder shortly. He wasn't very friendly or helpful before the tour. He totally changed into a decent tour guide during the tour. He needs help in his customer service skills. I wouldn't recommend Classic Carriage because if our initial experience with the guide.
