I've been to Mackinac Island twice, and in hindsight, I would definitely start out my tour of the island with a carriage tour first thing in the morning. The guide was extremely helpful, fun, and informative. You get to see a lot on this tour, including the arch monument (with amazing views of the lake). It is very relaxing and... More

we had a great time on this tour. i don't think we could do it ourselves. our guides were funny and very informative. stopped for us in a few places to take pictures and look around. the whole excursion to visit an island might be pricey but once you are here you shouldn't hesitate and pay for the carriage tour....

We had three of us only on this ride and we were all family. What an experience and it helped that the man had his own horse and has lived on the Island for many years. He had all kinds of knowledge of the place and went to all the landmarks. Gotta do this on the Island.

Even though we'd seen a lot of the sites already, we decided to take a guided tour to maybe find out some history behind certain things, or some hidden spots we wouldn't find on our own. The tour guide we had was awesome! He was hilarious, and even changed the route a little bit based on the fact that a... More

If you are ever on the Island, spend the extra money for this carriage tour. The guides were very informative and took us by the main attractions of the Island. Fun for every family member.

I loved going to the Island and touring on a horse driven coach. (there are no cars on the island) We went late in the year about a week before things start to close. It was amazing even though it rained the whole time~HARD. The shops are plenty if you like to shop and look for gifts but the tour... More

Loved every "clop, clop" of the tour..but what was best was..(must call and reserve ahead of time)..they have handicapped accessible carriages!....the carriage has a hydraulic ramp on the back of special carriage...drove my scooter right onto it(probably can get two on) and away we went...front part of carriage has regular seating for about 8

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.
