Great fun way to see some of the island and gain some insights. The tour guides are knowledgeable and entertaining. The draft horses are beautiful and well behaved.

This was a narrated tour that took you all over the island. The guides gave interesting facts about the island and its history.

for a carriage service it is ok. If you don't want to walk uphill to a lot of the sights it is helpful and informative, but mostly crowded and can sometimes be annoying. Ours was a smooth ride and had a much better and more comfortable carriage after the transition at the museum.

We loved the actual tour of the island but the first segment of the tour on the smaller carriage was miserable. They force four people into a row even if there is not enough room. I was pretty much kneeling on the floor because there wasn't enough room to sit back on the bench. Once we switched to the larger... More

We LOVED Mackinac Island!!! That being said, we would have seen virtually nothing if we had not been on the carriage tour. This will allow you to see the entire island, getting on and off, viewing the sites.

This is the easiest way to quickly see the island. In just over an hour and a half they take you down main street up the hill to the Grand Hotel and back through the State Park. Most of the time is spent riding through the woods, but it was still fun and entertaining. The fee was about $24 a... More

It has been quite a few years since we took a carriage tour on the island. Times have changed and there are more stops than years past. The negative is you now have more drivers to tip. ;-) This tour is a great way to get an overview of the island. We enjoyed the stop at Butterfly House and the... More

Where do I even start? Well, when we first started our tour, we were greeted so kindly by our tour guide, Blaine. If you're one of the lucky ones to ride with Blaine, you're in for a treat! This guy is hilarious! You won't miss him. He's the cutie with the long, blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail. I... More
