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.

This carriage ride is WELL worth the 50 dollars. The driver is knowledgeable and provides a lot of tidbits about Cape May history and 30 minutes is perfect!

Excellent and friendly tour guide, beautiful horse and awesome scenery during the tour. The tour route showed my wife and I the most beautiful sites in Cape May. The weather was very warm but rainy but that did not spoil the tour. This is one attraction that will never get old.

We did this tour as soon as we arrived. It was romantic and fun. Our carriage guide was a character and very knowledgeable about local history. She made sure we were warm under fuzzy blankets before we set out. The streets of Cape May are very charming, especially at Christmas.

Carol and I were given a gift to the Cape May Carriage Co. which we were able to find a reservation for on New Years Eve. Bob and Stormy the horse were very nice to both Carol and I while on the carriage ride. Bob took us throughout the streets of Cape May to some of the nicest Christmas light... More

My husband and I enjoyed our carriage ride with Cody. She was friendly and very knowledgeable about Cape May. We enjoyed all her stories on a beautiful night in December. This ride is perfect for couples and families. I would highly recommend this experience for all.

Beautiful ride through the streets of historical Cape May. Get to see many of the old Victorian homes decorated for Christmas. I also learned a lot about the history of Cape May. A must do at least once if you are there during the holiday season.

Planned on taking a horse and buggy ride on a weekend night in December but apparently you need to book ahead of time as they sell out way in advance for evening rides. Ended up taking a daytime ride on Sunday and it was such a fun/laid back thing to do in Cape May. Also very romantic!

Highly recommended for any trip to Cape May. We took our granddaughters for the first time. They loved the horses, Stormy and Deisel and we all enjoyed the mild evening ride through Cape May and the beautiful ambience of all the houses and bed & breakfasts all decorated for Christmas. Our driver was wonderful and gave us a wonderful history... More
