“First Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

The carriage ride should be your first stop when visiting Lexington. I wish we had taken this first because it would have saved us a lot of time in knowing where to go. The young lady that drove us was very pleasant and did a great job in filling us in on all the history and sites

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a great time. I grew up in Lexington but had been away for years. Brought wife and family to visit. We all loved the carriage tour of the city. Would recomend it for anyone who has never taken it whether you are a 1st time visitor or have been in the area all your life

“Informative Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Visited Lexington in July. We decided to take the carriage tour for an overview of the historic sites. Our driver/tour guide was Peter who is a serious history buff. He knows the city, historic background and takes the time to answer questions and even recommend sites to visit. We also would recommend this tour. The visitor center is right across the street with plenty of parking and the cost is reasonable.

“Great Historical Overview of Lexington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We took the Carriage tour of Lexington, and it was a wonderful trip around town, seeing many of the historic spots. Our driver/tour guide was an expert in Civil War history (he was a consultant and an extra in the movie "Gods and Generals") and he really brought history to life.

An excellent tour, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

“OK experience, but I would not do it again. Just not enough interestin information during the ride.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

part of the ride was a stop to water the horses and dump their diapers. It has to be done but why part of the ride?
