Our driver & tour guide was well versed on the history of the historical section of Cape May. Would suggest doing this tour during the daylight hours - difficult to see the exquisite Victorians at night.

What a beautiful and peaceful ride through Cape May Driver was very informative and entertaining. Carriage goes slow enough to appreciate all the beautiful architecture in Cape May.

This is a great attraction for a beautiful evening to see the Victorian homes lite up and to get some interesting history information. Drivers are very educated in the history of the area. We have take the carriage ride a few times and had a different route each time making it more interesting

The ride around Cape May was nice, the driver really knew her history, well-informed. This is the best way to get to know the area quickly.

We so enjoyed the carriage ride around Cape May. We learned a lot and saw areas that we wouldn't have seen or walked too. It was a great way to see more of Cape May!

My family (wife and two kids, age 7 and 9) enjoyed an evening tour through Cape May. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided some real insight into the history of Cape May. The different homes and hotels revealed beautiful architecture throughout the tour. A real treat for the family.

We have taken many a horse & carriage ride with the Cape May Carriage Company. Each one has been excellent, yet different. The drivers give you a tour and history of Cape May as they take you around this very scenic town. It is a must do for any visitor of Cape May. You need to reserve a seat ahead... More

Oh my what a great review but I've got to correct you on two items.The big wagon is not public anymore,in fact it hasn't been for three years.We use it now for groups and families who wouldn't fit into a carriage.It is roomy enough for 8-10 adults and a kid or 2.You may see it moving around town with a...
