We were tired of walking and went to the carriage rides. After looking at all the horses and carriages, we chose Jerry. A beautiful 5 year old black horse. Our Guide, "T" was very knowledgeable and made our tour very interesting and relaxing. I would definitely go again.

After supper, we took an evening carriage ride with T and Jerry, the gentlest of horses. T took us through the city showing us the sights and giving us a history of this beautiful city. Intertwined were stories of haunted houses and graveyards, brave citizens and cunning entrepreneurs, a city on fire and the many cultures who rebuilt it. T... More

If you want to see St. Augustine, and learn some history about the city, the best way to travel is by carriage. Relaxing, with stories about how the city formed, battles won, and more are part of your tour. This is always something we look forward to when in town. Even if we had heard the story before, the carriage... More

Did a night of lights carriage ride through the tasting tours and the horses ronnie and donnie were awesome. Tour guide was great and full of historical info. Highly recommended this way to see the lights rather then the trolley tours. Fully enjoyed the night. Thanks again

They advertise a Ghost Ride for $20 as a matter of fact the add reads Tickets $20 for ride. When we called the price was more than double and a shorter trip that is advertised. To me that is plain crooked business. The add doesn't say that the tours start at $20. They wanted to charge my boyfriend and I... More

These folks picked up a brochure from a ghost company we had formerly worked with. They have been asked many times to take them down because the ride was no longer offered. I personally spoke with this guest and explained that at the time. Yes it is two different tours, times, and pricing. Unfortunately we can not control the other... More

Enjoyed our carriage ride through historic St. Augustine. Our guide/driver was very informative and knowledgeable. The horses, Samuel and Adam were great as well... The kids love buckskins so they were excited about this trip. The guide kept their interest which is very impressive. Would definitely like to do an exclusion with this company again and try the ghost tour.

To find a horse & carriage with tour guide we simply strolled down along Bayfront Bvd which is where all the tour guides, horses & carriages from the different companies offering these sorts of tours hang out. We felt this to be the one time where it was great to book in person if you have the time instead of... More

For our 37th Wedding Anniversary, my husband surprised me with a carriage ride around St Augustine. It made an already special night...even more special. It was a wonderful and relaxing way to not only see the St Augustine downtown area, but to learn about it's history as well. Fred came by our B&B to pick us up, which was also... More

My wife and I took a ride with this company on the beach and had a wonderful time. The horses were very gentle and cooperated all the time. The ride up the beach was very relaxed and enjoyable. Our guide led us around and pointed out various things of interest. The beach was not crowded with people, so having to... More

Our children purchased a carriage ride for us for our trip to St. Augustine and we really enjoyed it. Our horse Holly was a former race horse, but she was gentle and obedient. I did not catch our driver's name but she was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. We got some facts about St. Augustine that we had... More
