Our group of 4 decided, after looking about for a "ghost tour", to book a carriage ride with a ghost theme. Miss Rita offered us an appointment the evening after we contacted her and met us in front of the courthouse with her impressive horse, Indy, and her beautiful carriage. Excellent choice and one of the best things we did... More

Indy the horse was smarter than most humans. The tour is a MUST and you will be awed at every turn. The history of this town is special and it covers every question with historical fun facts

Great tour with interesting history of the area. Rita is very entertaining but Indy is definitely the star of the show! Such a well mannered and attentive gentleman!

We had Rita pick us up at our B&B, The Florida house Inn. She took us on a private tour of the historic district. We learned a lot of history and had a romantic evening ride.

Our dapple grey "horsepower" Prince was on his second outing and a great horse to follow through the city. His human companions were very interesting and knowledgeable about town and history. The route we were assigned was lovely; canopied streets with a variety of architectural styles among the homes. I sometimes hesitate with carriage rides because I often wonder about... More

What an incredible wealth of Knowledge our driver had! The hour seemed to fly by with interesting story and tidbit after another. She was so well-versed in the town that we swore she must have grown up in the town, but she hadn't! The ride was smooth and lovely!

The owner and horse are quite lovely and if you are mostly interested in hearing stories about the old downtown area, this is perfect. There were four of us, and we were a little dismayed that the actual carriage ride was only a few blocks--we were looking for a half hour carriage ride with a little narrating, not a lot... More

Rita Jackson, owner/driver, is a class act and the the 60 minute tour our husband went on was wonderful. She showed us areas that we normally would not have seen if we were on our own. Rita's knowledge of history and her ability to tell a story makes this a must do if you are new to Amelia Island. This... More

A wonderful activity after a perfect dinner off Centre St. And Rita is perfect host with her 2,500 lb Belgian horse providing a history view of pirates, architecture, Eight Flags, love, etc. Really neat way to see the quaint Centre St. of Fernandina Beach. Enjoy the Olde Town Carriage Company!
