Took half an hour carriage tour around Memphis in this magical pumpkin carriage with coloured fairy lights. My daughter thought she was a princess! The guides are fab and there is a blanket to wrap around or cover your legs if you get cold. It was $55 for the half hour but what a wonderful half hour.

The young girls are pretty easy to please, honestly. What young princess doesn't need a horse and carriage ride? But we are also happy if we can please the adults, too! Thanks for joining us and come and see us a again when your princess needs another dose of magic. More

Excellent experience with the gorgeous carriages and horses. We were walking to the Riverboat Dinner cruise, running late, a few girls had heels and could not pick up the pace. The Carriage drivers took us and dropped us off in a very timely manner and were very courteous to us all. Great job, loved the puppies riding with their humans!!

While staying at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, we took a carriage ride after dinner. Our driver was a terrific guide named William, his dog Ruby & gorgeous black horse named Pi. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing way to spend an hour hearing about the rich history of Memphis. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

My wife and I booked this tour a week or so in advance. We reserved a time that we thought would allow us ample time to get checked in to our hotel, grab some dinner, and then meet back at the hotel for our tour. Checking in to our hotel proved to be way more involved than we thought (scathing... More

Being from Memphis, I've never taken part in these tours until this most recent visit. I went with my aunt, toddler and 2 of my cousins. We discovered the night before that they will pick you up from any downtown hotel at no extra charge, although we didn't need that service it was good to know. We found them in... More

It's hard to tell, since we don't have a driver's name, which carriage company that you rode with. Many people, even locals, don't realize that there are actually 6 different carriage companies that operate downtown. However, I can pretty safely say that no matter what company, the drivers are always happy to take a ride. The "negotiating" mentioned in the... More

My husband and I rode with Phil, his dog Lulu and Bob, the horse, who did all the work. Phil was a great guide as he described the history of the buildings, parks etc. that we passed. He was very personable, as was Lulu. It was a nice way to end a day in Memphis. I would recommend this tour... More

Happy Birthday! Our drivers and horses are honored when they get the chance to share in a special day in someone's life. We get to enjoy our horses every day, but it's great to give our customers the gift of a little horsey love and happiness on their birthday! More

Arriving in Memphis at 10pm one night we saw these fairytale-like horse drawn carriages rambling the downtown area. We were instantly sold! Barney was quite well behaved and Laura went above and beyond the call of duty. She shared tidbits of history, current city affairs and pointed out great sights such as Autozone Park, the old Kress building, Hebe in... More

This was our second carriage ride with Karin and Pie and they did not disappoint. She was very accommodating by picking us up at our hotel and dropping us off when we were finished. Our daughter especially enjoyed holding/snuggling with Bella. This was a great experience and we plan to do it again.
