We are a horse-drawn carriage company.We provide guided tours through Historic district of Cape May.We would like to fully explain why we do not accept credit cards.We are located at the corner of Ocean and Washington St. we have a small unprotected mobile table that has no power,no phone and no protection from the weather.We cannot get a phone jack which is needed to take credit cards because we do not have a store front.Cape May is an island with terrible satellite and cell reception therefore the mobile credit card devices also do not help us.There are other very expensive mobile devices that are weather sensitive and do to the fact that we have no protection from the elements ,that is not an option either.We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to some .There is an ATM located directly behind where we are parked.We hope that you enjoy the horse and carriages and the joy, and beauty they bring to the hundreds of people who ride each year.

We love going on the carriage ride. No matter how many times we have gone, we always see something different or hear new facts about the history of the town. The drivers are always pleasant. No trip to CM is complete without a carriage ride.

We had a wonderful carriage ride, we signed up and then went for dinner. Came back and got right on our carriage. This was our 3rd time and our driver took us a different route. We learned new things that we had not learned on the last ride. Fun for EVERYONE!

If you're planning to ride in the carriages, be sure to get your name on the list early or be prepared to spend time in the shops until it is your turn. Our first night, we had an hour and a half wait, so we tried again the next day and had an hour wait. Our driver was incredibly knowledgeable... More

Very nice and informative drivers. Take a carriage ride, or for an added treat, ride the new Pumpkin Carriage. Book that first thing in the morning, it books up!

This is a very pleasant and informative way to tour Cape May, learn about some of the more interesting Victorian homes in the area and soak in some of the history of this amazing area. A ride in the evening for us was extra special with the glow of the gas lamps and the gentle clomping of the horse hooves... More

Our tour guide was very helpful and the horse himself was friendly and accommodating. I recommend going in October when it's cooler out and doing the "ghost tour". It was great to learn about the ghosts and haunted houses of Cape May. Tour was quick, but a nice beginning or end to your evening.

Great evening with my husband and our two children. The kiddos loves the ride and the guide was very sweet. Worth the money.

Taking a carriage ride around cape may is a great way to learn about the history, and get cozy with your special someone. On a lovely summer evening, listening to the sound of the horses hooves hit the pavement......such a wonderful way to start or finish an evening.

We have taken many horse and carriage rides from the Cape May Carriage Company. They have always been friendly and professional. They also enjoy the safety of guests and the horses. Often times you can walk up and make your reservation, they only accept cash so come prepared or there is a atm nearby. The guides are very knowledgeable and... More

We booked our carriage ride online a couple months before we visited. We learned all kinds of "fun facts" about the area and different houses we passed. The kids loved it also. The horses were dressed up with flowers and painted hooves. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
