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

What a fantastic way to see and experience the heart of downtown St. Paul. My wife and I took a tour as part of our anniversary celebration and this was definitely a highlight. We experienced St. Paul in a way that gave us a new appreciation for its history, beauty and vitality. The downtown evening lights were a plus. Our... More

This is the third time I have ridden with these guys, and they are a the best way to see Minneapolis. This time we rode with Mikala, her grandfather owns the company and she did a super job. Keep up the great job hitching company

My husband and I went on this carriage ride for his birthday. We did a tour at nighttime from Nicolett Island Inn and we both enjoyed it immensely. The horse was obviously well trained and we enjoyed talking to our carriage driver during the ride. The ride was both romantic and historical.

My husband and I absolutely loved our one hour carriage tour of downtown St. Paul! It was both romantic and interesting. Our driver Devon was very friendly, knowledgeable, and funny, but also knew when to let us enjoy some quiet romantic moments. Her horse Kathy was well cared for and well trained. All in all a wonderful experience. We will... More

I actually found The Hitching Company through TripAdvisor and it's positive reviews made up my mind for me. I can say that both myself, and husband were very satisfied with the experience! Their schedule had filled up quickly due to Valentine's Day, but with no time restrictions we didn't mind a 9pm departure time; I should also mention that I... More

The horse is huge, slow and mellow. What you hear is the clip clop of its feet on cobble stone streets and views that take your breath away as you cross over the Mississippi river, twice. No better way to see Minneapolis.

Our guides Arthur & DJ took us on a one hour ride of Minneapolis on a beautiful Saturday evening. Weather was great and the scenic ride through Loring Park provided a great backdrop to the in-ride proposal near the park entrance. A memorable evening made better when she answered Yes! Thanks again!
