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.

We happened on Mike and his horse and carriage by the NIcollet Island Inn and he took us on a terrific trip around the island. The lights of Minneapolis and the river were fantastic. It was chilly out, but the blanket were warm and the ride was SOOO relaxing...a nice break from the day. Better than Central Park in New... More

Minneapolis has so much to see....what better way than to see it in style in a horse drawn carriage. It was a beautiful night to explore Nicollet Island and enjoy the elegance, beauty and lights of the Twin City bridges and skyline! Mike, our driver, was so courteous and friendly. Martin, the horse, was wonderful as well. Warm blankets kept... More

I was afraid that temps in the 40s and a bit of wind would ruin our ride. I was happy to be wrong. The blanket provided kept us very comfortable. The tour of Harriett Island was excellent. Our driver offered to tell us the history of the area, or sit quietly and let us enjoy the ride . It was... More

Magnificent experience! We picked the one 70-degree day this month to take a carriage ride along the riverfront in Minneapolis as a date and it was perfect. The driver was very knowledgeable and kept a comfortable pace, the horse seemed to be enjoying his leisurely walk and we got to see some amazing sights and take in the beautiful day.... More

We loved the ride. Our only complaints were that we wished the driver would have talked to us and told us what we we're seeing. Beautiful area but we had no clue what anything was as we were visiting from Arizona. Also our hour ride was only 45 minutes.
