Well worth the ticket price, you get to see a lot of the island and get lots of information and intertained at the same time.

Both drivers, John on the first leg and Luke (I think, he was from Wisconsin) on the second leg, were awesome drivers and hosts. Funny and friendly. Perfect for the tour. Definitely a great way to see the island and learn a bit about it's history. Sat in front - only downside is getting horse hair on you. So if... More

Take a carriage tour to get a feel for the island, then walk or rent bikes to see more on your own. The corny puns the drivers make are funny at first, but after three or four they started taking a toll on my husband and me. Not all the info the drivers give you is correct; you will discover...

Very knowledgable funny drivers! Great way to see highlights of island! Well worth the money. Don't miss the butterfly house and the fort. It gave us a good overview so we could go back to the place we wanted to visit longer.

The carriage tours take you throughout the island and the state park. We had four different carriage drivers throughout our day and my two favorite were Chris and Kendra. They were funny, nice, and so helpful and full of information. Favorite part of my trip on the island.

Nice way to see the island away from the main street. Had Grant and Anna as friendly, informative driver/guides. Other than by foot, it is a good way to see the island and tour through the state park- while experiencing the history, horses, and nature. Pick up on Main Street.

This was our 4th tour and what I love the most about it is the fact that no two tours are the same! Every time we go, we learn some new, interesting facts. It's nice to change it up and make it exciting so that you don't feel that you have the same experience each time you visit the island.... More

This was the first time that we took the carriage tour while visiting Mackinac Island. We were with a group of eight, which they cleared 2 rows so we could all seat together. The jokes were awful, but the history was great. Our guides were Jake for the first part then Sam the second part. Sam was great!! Jake over... More

This was our first carriage tour and we were not disappointed. Our guides were Candace and Josh (I really hope that is his name because he was fabulous). Yes, there are some bad jokes and puns but the historical facts of the island triumph over all. We had no idea there was a graveyard on the island, let alone an... More

The first part of tour lasts 20 minutes from main street to state park! Our first part gave us Stephanie as tour guide who could be given a trophy for terrible jokes as a way to tell about tour and using "you guys" 54 times in 20 minutes and five minutes asking for tips! However, Aleece, through state park was... More
