Great way to see part of the city and relax.

Great way to tour some of the historic parts of the city with open an open carriage and an experienced driver.

Carriage Tours of Memphis is a leisurely way to explore the city, rates can vary, and the quality of guides can vary. Our guide was young but knowledgeable, he had a good personality and finished our ride right at our hotel door.

We are glad you enjoyed your ride! We do have different tour rates based upon the length of time of the tour. And with all the great hotels and restaurants concentrated around the Downtown Memphis historic district, the carriages can pick up and drop off at most of them for no additional fee! Who needs a car when you can... More

March 26th 2016, my 2 cousins ,friends and aunt went on a carriage ride for 1/2 an hour in Memphis. We were searching all over and finally found the carriages. Something drew me to Laura's carriage she was very nice and helpful. Her horse barney was really sweet and professional I was amazed at how well she trained to pull... More

I was so excited to take our girls on a carriage ride. We chose the 30 min tour because we love history and thought the girls would enjoy the horses ect. The guide was hard to hear, hardly had anything interesting to say. I was disappointed. Perhaps it would have been different if we had a different guide. The girls... More

So sorry that you didn't feel like you got much information from your driver. There are several different carriage companies that operate downtown, so without a name reference I can't say for sure if this was one of our carriages or not. But regardless we want you guys to enjoy the ride, and normally the drivers are happy to offer... More

We had a perfect evening in a Princess Carriage. Our driver (Laura) picked us up at our hotel on time and wisked us away for a fantastic tour of Memphis.

Scheduled the 30min tour as our first attraction for our Memphis vacation. We had 3 young girls with us, so I reserved the Cinderella carriage. The girls loved it. 30 min went by quickly, should've probably done the 60min. The tour guide was knowledgeable and helped with choosing restaurants for later. Would recommend as the beginning of a vacation to... More
