I wasn't expecting a carriage ride to be all that interesting or being able to cover most of the island but it was. Was well worth the time and gave a good overview of the island.

This was an excellent tour....beautiful scenery, interesting history, great tour guide who encouraged interaction among all those taking the tour. Loved the horse and carriage and the blankets to put over your lap....turned back the clock to a simpler time, even if only for a couple hours.

Everytime my husband and I go to the island we always go on this tour. We typically learn some new tidbit about the area on each tour. It never seems to get old.

we had Katie for our tour guide. She was very knowledgable. Loved the tour- just long enough, but gave us a chance to see the island without having to walk or bike. We were here in October so it was cold and a lot of things were closed. Wouldn't have wanted to find my way around and get lost- too... More

Very good tour guide/driver. He was funny and entertaining. He loves his horses which is good when he has to work with them daily. Easy to get onto the tours from the main street. Don't sit in the very back seat as the loudspeaker is in your ear.

We have taken this tour many times. We took it this time as we had a lot of first timers with us on our trip. Usually this is a great way to see the island and learn some island history. Usually.... This trip was all about the driver. She loved the horses, which is nice. That is all she talked... More

I would have rated higher but the cost for a couple now is over $50. Although a nice tour it goes a bit slow through part of the island. Our first driver was fairly new so the color commentary wasn't as rich as I would have expected. Our second driver (after having to wait in line half way through for... More

Took this tour as soon as we got on the island. Judy was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable about the island and island life which she shared with everyone. I'm not able to walk very far so this was a perfect way to see the highlights of the island. It was a bit chilly so they provided... More

For anyone's first trip to the Island, this is a great way to get an overview of the State Park. We got an excellent price, because I bought our tickets on line as a bundle with our Shepler's Ferry Tickets. Very accommodating to my mother-in-law and a wheel.
