We took the carriage tour through historic Natchitoches and were amazed at the information our driver was able to provide. The tour lasted about 45 minutes and was well worth it. Best $12 spent!

Tom, our carriage driver was certainly the perfect guide. His knowledge of the town and it's history floored me. The trip lasted almost an hour. Twelve dollars apiece was a steal. This outing was a pleasant surprise.

The ride was very affordable and the carriage and horse were well cared for. The tour covered a several block radius and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It would have been nice if it could have been a bit longer.
