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

Had not taken the tour for several years and wanted the grand kids to see the island. Maybe I remembered it for more than it was, but this time around was pretty boring. The first part was basically a ride to their office where you change carriages. The trip goes along a route where they point out several old buildings... More

Great tour of the island without having to walk/bike/ride it and stop to look things up. Informative and funny.

cost way too much money to have an attitude from the people loading the carriage. I prefer to sit towards the back because of an allergy to the horses, nothing severe but enough to stuff me up.. when I asked if I could skip to the back row I got a STURN no, a rude attitude and a STURN "row... More

My husband and I visited Mackinac Island in July. I have always wanted to see the island and The Grand Hotel with the longest porch, all 660 feet of it. The carriage ride left from the main street of town up the road next to the park below Fort Mackinac and through the residential streets to a museum and Butterfly... More

The charge seemed a little steep, but it was worth to see a lot of the Island you don't get to see while just walking the main street and the fort. You also get to hear some of the interesting history of the island. The drivers are a great source of information and entertainment. Being from Michigan I thought I... More
