About Old South Carriage Company

Southern Hospitality Since 1983

Welcome to Charleston, the pleasure is all ours! We have been owned and operated by the same family since 1983. Owner David Compton started tours with just three horses and one small carriage. Today we maintain a herd of 30 horses and over 20 carriages. Old South Carriage Company is now a large family of personable ticket sellers, a knowledgeable barn staff, and engaging tour guides who share the stories of Charleston with hundreds of thousands of guests a year.

Please stop by our stable at 14 Anson Street to meet our friendly and professional staff. See for yourself the quality of our operation. We offer what you’d expect from a large touring company without sacrificing the personal commitment that is unique to a family-owned business. Quality is of the utmost importance for us. Visit us and find out why we're the premier carriage company in Charleston.
