We love a great carriage ride but we don't like to be raped on the price. $40 for 15 minutes was a joke and $60 for 30 minutes. NO WAY! Almost no one was falling into that trap. Buyer beware.

First off, we have been on many house & carriage rides all over the country - This one was OK. A bit on the pricy side of things for the time you spend, but if you have never done this...go for it! The people that run things do a great job, and the carriages are clean and very convertible (we... More

We took the carriage ride outside of the Bavarian Lodge. It was $40 for a twenty minute ride. We went through a parking lot for a good portion, and the ride was only thirteen minutes - I timed it. When I asked why it was so short and why we didn't get the full time, I was told to take... More

I wish we could recommend it but we cannot. It is definitely not worth $60 for a half hour ride through a residential area. No narration except when we asked a question. The seat material has wear and several tears in it. So very disappointed and overpriced. Be forewarned that the height of the step and the step size for... More

A slow paced ride through town pulled by a gorgeous horse and carriage. Enjoyed the sites around town. Would recommend this ride even though it is a bit expensive $60 for a 30 min ride and $40 for a 15 min ride but I think it is worth it for a slow pace ride for picture taking of the beautiful...

My kids have been bugging me for years to take a horse drawn carriage around town so we finally did and it was a nice little jaunt around town where we learned a little Frankenmuth history from the driver. The cost was $40 for 15 minutes which is a bit expensive, but it was a nice trip and the drivers... More

We started out visit with a carriage ride and we are glad we did. Our guide was helpful and knowledgeable.

Fun if your looking for the novelty of a horse drawn carriage ride, especially if you're celebrating a special occasion or enjoying the reaction of a child. The carriage is very comfortable and the horses are well trained - important since they will be walking alongside automobile traffic at times. However, the prices are per hour for up to 6... More

Nice, comfy and clean carriages. The carriage-driver was friendly and answered all the children's questions. Nice trip around town at horse-speed.

Fun after a good meal. Nice, relaxing, fun. Nice way to end the day. If you've been on one carrage ride you've been on them all but nice nonetheless.
