When we visit a city, we always like to get the lay of the land by horse and carriage, bus or train. We had a wonderful drive with Anna and Diesel (the horse). A little expensive for a thiry-minute ride, but well worth it!

Our tour guide turned out to be the baker at the hotel where we stayed! She was great - very friendly, not to mention entertaining. The carriage tour gives you a relaxing view of some beautiful Cape May architecture, along with little known history as well. "Walk on, Taco!"

Our friends treated us to this leisurely activity. Our horse which was all white named Stormy was a beautiful stocky brute. His hooves plodded around Cape May as our tour guide, Anna, described the old Victorian houses telling us who lived there and the old stories back in the day. This was a nice half an hour.

Ahhhhhh you had our number 1 urinator Stormy .I was the lowly agent who put the bucket under him,and as he is a wiggler while going,I also have to shift my body around for a clean catch. Rarely do I get any on my hand because I've been doing this for 3 years now and know all the big tinklers.This... More

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.

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

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!
