About Experience Paris - Private Horse and Carriage Rides
Can you imagine a more romantic way to experience Paris than by a Horse and Carriage with beautiful interiors and blankets to keep you warm in the winter, and a covered top in case of rain. Pulled by a black or White Shire, our elegant Burgundy carriage trots through some of the most beautiful sections of Paris. For special occasions, proposals and weddings packages we offer a White Vis-a-Vis and a Cinderella Carriage.

This hour long carriage ride was a perfect way to capture a magical bit of romance around the gardens of the Eiffel tower and along the cobbled streets of Paris. The driver is kind and respectful of your space. He is also very respectful to his horse. This carriage is apparently the only one in the city and captures a fair amount of attention from onlookers, which I thought was fun. There is an opportunity to purchase a bottle of champagne. The ride is very comfortable. I would do it again!

This was booked for myself and my daughter and her friend and her mum, it was booked as special treat after a wonderful weekend in Paris. We were given the location via Email however received a text from the driver prior to the ride to say the location had changed. I called the driver for further instructions and was abruptly told 'read the text' not a good start tot the experience. when we finally arrived ( after getting directions from the local police who were very helpful ) we were not welcomed in any way and ushured into the carriage. There was a dispute over the inclusion of champagne in the package with the driver abruptly poking the bottle in and out of the bucket while talking to Larry on the phone. This went on for 15 minutes and I can honestly say this was the poorest customer service I have ever received. I asked if the time would be made up and was told No, and off we went. There was no dialogue between the driver and our group for the duration of the journey. when we arrived back to the Eiffel Tower, my daughter was about to take a photo of the horse but the driver galloped of into the distance - leaving us standing there in disbelief! Reading the comments below, I can only assume you all had a different driver than we did as we were certainly not made 'to feel like royalty' the whole experience was ruined. I have taken this up with Larry on my return only to find he too responded in a hostile and unprofessional manner too. 209 Euros wasted.

On the last day of our trip to Paris from the highlands of Scotland i booked this horse and carriage ride as part of my proposal idea and it could not of gone any better. I went through every detail with Larry via email in the months leading up to it and found him to be very accommodating to my requests and very professional to deal with. For anyone planning this as a proposal idea i highly recommend adding the photographer and champagne options for and added special touch. Cannot recommend enough.

I took my then girlfriend to Paris to propose. Knowing this wasn't very original I really wanted to do something special. After a quick search I came across this horse and carriage trip. As you can see from the photos it worked out beautifully and the whole family was there to surprise her. Amazing quality cariage, horse was beautiful and the guide was absolutely fantastic. 100% recommendation for this trip.

This was so amazing. We drank champagne whilst trotting through the streets of Paris on Christmas Eve. And the horse is from Knutsford so speaks perfect English :)
