Took family for the 30 minute carriage ride which grandaughter loved. The driver guide provided a brief history of many of the key sites and buildings in the center city which provided good input as to where we wanted to spend our limited time that day. Definitely recommend it.

This was a great way to see the historical sites around Independence Park. We enjoyed hearing the historical facts while taking in the sites. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The whole family loved the carriage ride.

We had our work Christmas party on December 19th, we hire 76 Carriage Company to give rides around the neighborhood, our carriage driver Melissa was pleasant and professional, the horse was so well behaved, they were on time and truly added that special touch to our party! Absolutely Wonderful!

Loved touring the old city of Philly by horse and carriage. Our horse, Brutus, added to the charm and ambience of the ride. He was a huge black horse that had attitude and thought for himself. Our tour guide was hysterical. She felt like a new friend you would want to share a beer with. She told us little "unknown"... More

Recently took the 1/2 hr. carriage ride with my wife, " My Princess". What a wonderful way to spend quality time w/ the one you love, see the sights, and learn some history. It was worth every penny. Yes, I recommend this.
