Went on a Sunday morning and by 9:30, it was already hot and sticky. The carriages are covered and when moving, you get a nice breeze. The seats are vinyl and one faces backwards. We were a family of 4, so picked a 4 seater carriage....this costs (half hour) $90 vs $72 if you go in a larger, 8-10 person... More

We brought our adult children to NOLA for the first time. We took them on an evening carriage ride and Dumaine was our driver and guide. He did a wonderful job. He was pleasant, funny and very informative. Also, the Hurricanes at Jean Lefitte's Blacksmith Shop bar were wonderful and much better than Pat O'Brien's.

Our driver was Dumaine and I must say that he is one of the best. Very knowledgable and funny. We had a very good time. This is our second time taking this tour this year and both times we made sure that we had Dumaine.

Shine the mule pulled our elegant carriage around Jackson Square and through Bourban Street. All the while her owner told us the tales of the area. Super informative.

Wayyy too much money for way toooo little, best discribes the carriage ride the four of us took in the New Orleans French Quarter. We are all hugh fans of New Orleans and are always willing to add touresty things to our list of things to do. But, this is not one.

Tho our tour guide was fairly new to the job (3 weeks exactly) he was entertaining nonetheless. The mule was beautiful (Rocky) and the day was perfect (4ish in the afternoon) so we took the 1 hour tour and had a blast looking at the old areas of the quarter as well as learning about the history of the area.

We had Mark as our tour guide, and we toured the Quarter, the Cemetery and part of Treme. Mark gave us time to walk around the Cemetery and give us information about what we were seeing and the changes the Quarter went through throughout history. It's a little pricy, but it was worth it.

A big priority for our girls group getaway to New Orleans was to take a carriage ride. After being offended by one of the drivers earlier in the day, we returned that night to seek out a different driver. Upon hearing of our earlier disappointment, Mr. Dumaine went out of his way to make it up to us and provide... More

We were a party of 5, some of us were first timers to New Orleans. Dumaine was patient and was very knowledgeable of the area. He made an effort to answer our questions politely and was very entertaining! Everyone in our party had a wonderful time! Something I would recommend to any visitor to NOLA
