A truly amazing way to spend the evening. I highly recommend the Grand River tour as it is away from the hustle of Hennepin Ave and a more romantic setting. Our driver, Carol, was excellent and very knowledgable. The horse, Marble, was beautiful. Thank you for a memorable experience! We will certainly be back.

Attractive, clean carriage pulled by a beautiful horse (Frank) and guided by a gentlemanly host. Lovely sights. We had amazing weather as well. Could be a great date, though we went as a family with 2 young children (4 and 1) and they had grins on their faces for most of the ride.

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.

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!
