At first I thought this was going to be a tourist ripoff, really 80bucks for the 4 of us to ride in a carriage?
I was wrong, it was a bargain. We had at least one hour of riding through history. Our guide Alli (short for Allison?) was knowledgeable, and our horse Spoons was slow but totally safe. It was a closeup look at the homes while our guide told us about fires and indians and malaria.
It was a windy and cold day and they squeezed the four of us in one seat,which worked out good since it was cold. They gave us blankets for our legs and we were comfortable for the entire ride. They split the routes up so all the carriages don't go to the same places. We went on route three,so we didn't see the painted rainbow row, this only makes me want to do the ride again!
I was going to preorder our tickets online but there is a 2.50$ handling fee per ticket. We printed off the coupon online and just showed up. The coupon was one dollar off each. We parked behind the red barn on the gravel lot provided and had a little over an hour to walk around before our tour was scheduled. It is a short walk to the open air market which was an added bonus. It had lots of neat stuff.
I really am glad my husband made me do this and I cant wait to do it again!
