This was a group carriage ride which is a good value. Be sure to buy your ticket as soon as you arrive as rides are very popular so you don't have to wait long (but you could go shopping in the meantime). Guides were very informative about sights and personalities of the horses which i enjoyed as an animal lover.... More

When we were stepping off onto Mackinac Island, I had this fear that I was going to see horses' hooves in bad shape everywhere we went. But this was not the case. Animal lovers, you will be happy to know that the folks who work there really hold the horses in very high regard, and they have excellent facilities there.... More

Even though we didn't do the private tour this was much more memorable our guide was so wonderful. He had a sense of humor and he had a cart full of comedians! We sang Happy Birthday to him as we learned his birthday was the day previous after we passed a fellow co-worker who expressed a belated birthday wish. We... More

We were on the first carriage ride of the morning, and had great drivers throughout. We chose to visit the butterfly conservatory, after finding a discount ticket for both attractions online, and enjoyed this portion a great deal. The carriage drivers all have a lot of knowledge about Mackinac, which they pleasantly and humorously share. The trip through the woods... More

My wife and I spent the past weekend in Mackinaw for or anniversary. We went on a carriage ride and had Rick as our driver. Without going into deep detail, this guy was the best guide I have EVER had on any tour and on any vacation I have been on! He was so funny and mad us all laugh... More

The day we went to Mackinac Island it was pouring rain, so unfortunately the bike riding was out of the question. We decided to do the carriage tour. The guide was awesome and very informative about the island and added a lot of her own stories and jokes which I always love when guides do that, makes for an interesting... More

Decided to go again for a tour. It had been years. Great drivers and fun to listen to. New stop in the middle to change horse teams. Nice building of information at the stop. GrandKids enjoyed it and will remember now.

The tour was good & informative. It is a must! The tour takes you down roads that would have been harder to discover on our own. So after the tour we were able to go back to places we enjoyed & spend more time & explore.

This carriage tour is a good way to get an overview of what the Island has to offer. The carriage driver gives you facts and tidbits about the Island as they take you on a journey around the south 1/3 of the Island. We did find at least two things the driver stated as fact to be wrong, so this... More

The carriage was big enough for our five-member family to share one row with comfort. The drivers know all the information we wanted to know about the island. As you are driving past everything and through the state park they continually talk about history and things going on in that specific place. The carriage stops at Surrey Hill and then... More
