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!

I wanted to surprise my wife with a carriage ride for our 22nd wedding anniversary. I got their phone number from The Nicollet Inn. We were picked up in front of the Inn at 6:30 sharp. 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

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.
