This was my first horse carriage ride and we were celebrating our anniversary. We did the Grand River Tour and I must say it was the best way to end our night after dinner at Oceanaire. We toured the nicer side of Minneapolis, my husband & I have never seen this part (we usually know the bad side and the... More

I took my wife on a carriage ride with The Hitching Company for our twentieth anniversary. I was concerned because it was 90 degrees but the ride on Harriet Island was mostly shady. The houses dating back to the late 1800's and all of the other historical attractions were pointed out by our driver. He was very friendly and courteous.... More

We had the pleasure of taking the 1 hour tour on a beautiful day in the Twin Cities. Our driver was courteous and knew a lot about the local history of the downtown area. Felt like a celebrity as so many people we passed took our picture. Not only was the ride great, but enroute we passed a number of... More

From start to finish, this was the best customer service and experience we have ever had. We had difficulties navigating through closed roads and construction on our way to meet our awaiting carriage. We called in to see about rescheduling or assistance getting there on time just to have the person on the other end offer to be our "OnStar".... More

A beautiful ride on a perfect summer night! Emily and horse were right on time, prim and proper. Our kids, ages 8,8, and 3 enjoyed it. Our 3 yr old got restless, but that's her nature because she never sits still...ever! Anyway, I'd recommend for any age.

This was a wonderful quiet hour through the city. My wife and eye enjoyed the ride and seeing the sunset as we rode along the river. I recommend it to anyone.

We read about the carriage rides at the German Days sponsored by the Germanic-American Institute on Summit Avenue in St. Paul and thought our granddaughters (8 and 6) would enjoy it. It was free to us because it was pre-paid by the GAI. What a deal! The white carriage was decorated with bouquets of artificial flowers. The trip was short... More

This was our second stop with the hitching company. Our first big date and our one year anniversary. We met Mike and our driver right where we were supposed to. We were able to take pictures with our house, in our carriage and in front of the amazing hotel we started at. Mike helped make sure the photos were amazing!... More

I bought this for my parents when they came to visit in Minneapolis. They had an amazing time and highly recommend it. Great way to see beautiful downtown and they enjoyed the company of the tour guide.
