We were waiting at the parking lot, googling things to do when we saw a large white horse pulling a carriage. Given that it was late in the evening and the beaches were closed, we decided to give the carriage ride with Cyndi and Boomer the horse a shot. Cyndi was a great storyteller, and she really brought the history... More

My spouse & I took a morning carriage ride with Cyndie & Boomer (horse superstar!) our first day on Amelia Island. We really enjoyed the historical info. Cyndie is very knowledgeable. Prior to starting our ride, we got to feed Boomer carrots, with Cyndie's approval. Later on our tour, Boomer made a beeline to a lady friend who was waiting... More

My husband and I took a carriage ride with Cyndi and Boomer on our last night on the island. She is quite a story teller and so friendly. I enjoyed every minute and could not believe how quickly it was already over. I would do it again in a heart beat. Cyndi obviously loves her horses and Amelia Island. It... More

What a treat to be driven around by a horse drawn carriage through the historic district. Lovely tour guide was very knowledgable about this great small island town.

We have gone on a few carriage rides before, but was very underwhelmed with this one. The owner showed up 30 minutes late and said she had lost our reservation (this is after we had walked around for 30 minutes looking for her). She was puffing on her cigarette in front of our three kids as she explained this to... More

I am very sorry that your family had such an unpleasant experience. In reviewing the carriage logs for June 10th and the 3 days prior, your family could not have ridden with me or my company. On the 10th, I was working with a news crew out of Jacksonville about things to do while on Amelia Island and my other... More

We met Cindy and her horse, Boomer as part of our tour while recently visiting Amelia Island. Cindy knows her stuff! Very interesting, very educational, very informative! I would highly recommend. I hope to book this again in the future when the family and I return.

Best thing to do on the island if you are on a romantic getaway. From the first moment we stepped on the carriage, we were having a great time!! Cindy introduced us to Boomer who is a beautiful horse and then gave us an awesome and informative tour of the historic district of Amelia Island. Cindy is so passionate about... More

We took an evening tour with Cindy and Boomer. Lots of fun and educational too. They added to feeling of warmth and friendliness that we enjoyed in Amelia Island

Cyndi picked us up at our hotel and took us on a peaceful, fully narrated tour of Amelia Island. It was fantastic. Her knowledge and down home approach were wonderful. It was the highlight of a 4 day stay on the island. Don't miss the carriage tour.
