We were visiting Memphis for a weekend getaway from Illinois. Karin was our driver and Carley was our horse. Karin was delightful and insightful. I was very impressed by her knowledge and history of Memphis. I would definately recommend her to anyone who wants a pleasant carriage ride through downtown Memphis!

Standing at the waterfront trolley stop an empty carriage was passing and I asked the price. We chose the hour tour for $75 which turned out to be a bargain for our journey lasted well beyond the time. Our guide was a young lady who was a fairly new resident of Memphis but was well versed on the lore and... More

We rented the Cinderella carriage for my daughter's birthday party in Midtown. The carriage arrived early and everyone got several rides. The kids had a blast and it really made the party. The driver, Mason, was relaxed and great with the kids. If you are looking to put a little something special in your child's birthday party, this is it!... More

What a fun thing to do while in Memphis. Karin, our driver was very knowledgable about the city and provided us with all sorts of information about the history of Memphis as well as valuable tidbits about restaurants to visit and sites worth seeing while in the city. Would highly recommend it for all ages!

My kids saw the carriages lined up outside of the hotel and we couldn't pass it up. We paid $45 for a thirty minute ride. We saw the river walk but not too much of the sites of memphis(Beale St). However, our guide Mason was GREAT! He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city and was able to answer... More

Glad to hear you and the kids had a good time. We enjoy being able to offer a family-friendly activity Downtown, especially after dark. The kids may not necessarily remember the historical information, but we hope they always remember the ride! More

Although I am a native Memphian who has lived here all my life, I have never taken a carriage tour. My fiance wanted to do one for her birthday. So, I made the reservation in advance for an hour long tour. There was an unfortunate series of missteps by management in handling the reservation and our carriage was late. HOWEVER,... More

Karen, our carriage driver, was very knowledgeable and informative about the history and architecture of Downtown Memphis. She was also extremely personable with us. I highly recommend Carriage Tours of Memphis for a new spin on touring this historic downtown area.

Did just a half-hour carriage tour of Memphis. What a lovely, calm, relaxing way to get some info on the area. Definitely different from the usual fast-paced tour experience. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it to you.
