My husband and I enjoyed our private drive-yourself carriage ride. We were given great instruction on how to operate the carriage as well as a well-timed out map for the hour trip we were looking to take. Our horse, Maybelle, was a perfect match for beginner drivers like us. It was a unique way to see the sites and experience... More

The customer service was great! Very friendly people and they do all the horse grooming and hitching for you. Their horses are healthy and well trained so I believe anyone with minimal horse experience can drive them. Our horse was very slow, but we laughed about it and had a great time. Highly recommend!

My wife and I decided to take a private tour with one of the locals. We learned a lot about the Island that you would not get by taking the group tour. A bit expensive but enjoyable. This Livery one can also rent a carriage and drive it themselves.

Paid $120 for a 1 hour private tour. We had a bit of a pokey horse so did not see all that I had hoped. I asked to see what one does not see on the "big cart" tours. Our tour seemed only slightly more diverse for 4 times the cost. Our driver was pleasant.

The staff at Jack's couldn't have been nicer. I can no longer ride due to a spinal injury, so I was interested in learning how to drive a horse and carriage. Mabel the horse was well-behaved and she appeared to be well cared for. We had a very good time, and we'd definitely recommend Jack's to any novice who wants... More

It is a fun time and not too expensive! Drive/Ride around the island and explore! The attendants were welcoming and helpful ... the horses know the route exactly and not a problem if you're a novice!!

We (two adults and two 4 year old boys) happened upon Jack's soon after arriving to the island. We had no itenerary so it was a perfect way to discover the island first. They have tours of every size starting at $80. It may seem pricey, but compared to any other, with a driver involved, they're far less expensive. They... More

This was a fun. We took a carriage ride. I was the designated driver. You could almost say it was an almost boring ride, as the horse goes very slow and knows his route, but then when you consider "the traffic" of other carriages, bikers, and pedestrians, I did have to pay attention to what was going on around me!...
