Overview
Take a romantic carriage ride through the French Quarter and cover more ground than you would on foot—including Faubourg Marigny. The private four passenger carriage typically passes by highlights like Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, the French Market, Bourbon Street, and Royal Street, but the guided route can be customized to personal interests.

This was an enjoyable tour, with a knowledgeable carriage tour guide. It really felt like we were up close and personal with the French Quarters. Nice outing even during the quarantine time. Thank you for being able to accommodate.

We started off our French Quarter experience last Saturday with a carriage tour from Jonathan and Bernard. Learned so much about the history and culture of the area. Perfect way to experience the quaint streets, with the clip-clip of Bernard’s hooves on the pavement! Such a fascinating and historic locale; so glad we had a knowledgeable guide to set the mood for our entire vacation. Thank you Jonathan!

We came down to the area to escape the cold in Colorado and Wisconsin. We had a wonderful carriage tour by Mark (Interpretive Guide) and Cloudy (Mule). Mark did an excellent job telling us all about the history of the city and showing us the sites. He had a wonderful personality; friendly, funny and personable. He is very knowledgeable of the history of the city. Cloudy also did an excellent job. This is a great company. We would highly recommend them as well as recomend Mark and Cloudy!
