Medium and large horse-drawn carriages driven by knowledgeable/young summer guides take you on sightseeing tour around the Island, State Park, etc. Several stops along the way. Guides are well versed on local knowledge and care of the horses. A pleasant 3 hour tour beats walking. Never seen so many bikes for rent in my life. Tips are appreciated!

The handlers were knowledgeable of the Island, and make it fun with a sense of humor. Not too much time is spent at the land mark Arch Rock only 5-7 minutes. Take pictures quick.

I really enjoyed the carriage tours because I got to see a lot of the island. The drivers were fun, funny and informative. I loved all the places we stopped and the horses are amazing.

The ride gives you a chance to see other sights on the island and other things you might want to do. Also gives you a break from shopping. A must to do

Excellent tour guides; interesting places to see. A bit pricey, but good to do once. We got a good overview of the island and learned a few things about its history.

We took the carriage tour on our second day on the island. It was a wonderful way to explore the island and get an idea where everything was located. The guides were so informative and funny.
