We are a horse-drawn carriage company.We provide guided tours through Historic district of Cape May.We would like to fully explain why we do not accept credit cards.We are located at the corner of Ocean and Washington St. we have a small unprotected mobile table that has no power,no phone and no protection from the weather.We cannot get a phone jack which is needed to take credit cards because we do not have a store front.Cape May is an island with terrible satellite and cell reception therefore the mobile credit card devices also do not help us.There are other very expensive mobile devices that are weather sensitive and do to the fact that we have no protection from the elements ,that is not an option either.We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to some .There is an ATM located directly behind where we are parked.We hope that you enjoy the horse and carriages and the joy, and beauty they bring to the hundreds of people who ride each year.

What a wonderful tour of the town and the tour guide was very informative! Besides the tour, there are lots of things to do, i.e., the wonderful beaches, the fabulous dining, and shopping!

We did the New Orleans Carriage ride, this one was much longer and way more pleasant, our driver was friendly and really informative, She didn't treat us as tourist and really connected, I would recommend and do it again!

A fabulous way to travel through Cape May with a knowledgeable driver. One gets to see the homes and architecture of buildings at a slower pace. The anicdotes and explanation of the history of Cape May is so very interesting.

We had a delightful time celebrating our birth-day, our horse and carriage was excellent. Our party of four was delighted with the history of Cape May. A return trip is recommended for another time of the year.

What a great way to end an evening. You get to slowly ride through the city and see thing you don't see when driving. The coach driver tell great stories of the historic homes and city. Carriages are clean and beautiful.

We have taken this carriage ride many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. The ride takes you through the town and is narrated by the driver. They seem to be open for business most of the year as long as the weather is clear. The Christmas season offers a view of the lights of the town while bundled in a... More

Took a half hour ghost tour. Our guide was Dale. She was friendly, but I feel she could have given more history of Cape May as well as more legends. The "ghost" stories were very vague. It was a beautiful night to ride in a horse & buggy, and Cape May never disappoints. I recommend booking online one of the... More

"I think "ghost" stories are supposed to be vague aren't they?They are just stories after all.Not all drivers will even do these tours,they prefer real history.I'm disappointed you gave us 2 stars based on what you think a "ghost "story should be,and also that you didn't enjoy yourself. More
