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

We had a great tour through the city of St Augustine. Very comfortable carriage and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. He was hilarious and did a fantastic job. Only downfall was it was a little pricey but we'll worth it.

We chose to take a carriage ride as a part of rommance weekend. It urned out to be fun. Our driver was a very knowledgeable horse women. She was great with the horse. She also let us ask our own questions as we are familiar with St. Augustine. Nice touch to a wonderful evening.

My husband and I did not have as much time as we would like on our first visit to St. Augustine so we thought that a good way to get a basic tour and some history without walking all over was to take a carriage ride. It was the best idea! Amy, our tour guide, and Lee were a great... More

Really nice carriages and tour guide/driver. We had a nice 45 minute tour (which took an hour - thanks Jim and Chip). Just a great way to get a view and some knowledge (did you know that Ponce de Leon was only 4' 1")?

On our trip to St Augustine for Nights of Lights, my family and I had discussed taking a trolly ride vs. a carriage ride. The line for the trolly was super long, and the drivers and passengers were obnoxious during our observation of them while walking around the town. My husband recently had neck surgery, so I didn't want him... More
