We couldn't finish our ride due to the smell from the horse poop. Try to go there before the poop. We cut our ride short. I asked for a refund but they said no. Our driver was nice.

Loved our 60 minute tour around Nicollet Island area with Emily and Marble! Would do it again! Attn adult kid looking for something affordable to give your parents for their Anniversay? This is perfect! My husband loved it as much as I did.

Our evening out was a gift from a daughter who never can figure what to give us. By far this was one of her better gifts. We enjoyed the evening with a beautiful hour ride from The Nicollet Inn and ending with going over the Stone Arch Bridge. Since we live in Lakeville and do get to Minneapolis often we... More

We were celebrating mom's 70th birthday with dinner at the Nicollet Island Inn and with the carriage ride. It was a relaxing and unforgettable night. Thanks for a splendid time!

A beautiful white carriage with red interior. Our driver, Emily and Marbles, the horse, made our ride very enjoyable. We had a great time... More

My wife and I took the 1 hour tour from the Nicollet Island Inn, and it was fantastic! We were on the 9:30 tour, so the city was quiet and dark. Our tour guide was very casual and friendly - we had pet Mike the horse and chatted with the driver (who's name I wish I could remember) earlier in... More

My daughter and her friends were very surprised when the carriage arrived while we were standing in front of the Hyatt awaiting the surprise we had arranged for them. They commented on how, while dressed in their formal gowns for Prom, they felt like princesses touring the city. "People were looking at us and waving at us, and some were... More

Neither me or my partner had been on a carriage ride before, but afterward we both thought it was outstanding. We took the 1-hour tour from Nicollet Island Inn. Our driver, Mike, was very knowledgeable to answer all our questions throughout the tour, as well as pointing out some unique spots of history. He was friendly but not overbearing, giving... More
