We had a great time learning about the different houses and history of the town. Shelby was a great guide and knew the history well. She made us laugh and smile and we had a fantastic time. It was a beautiful night for a carriage ride which made it even better.

A must do if you staying at Amelia Island. Cyndi has so much local and institutional knowledge of the town, the houses and founding families. Wonderful experience and perfect for a couples romantic prelude to dinner out on the town. She will drop you right off in front of your restaurant. Beats a limo any day.

We loved our ride with Cyndi and her horse, All That Jazz! My husband and I took the tour with our 3 kids (11, 7, and 2). Although my toddler was lulled to sleep right away the rest of us enjoyed hearing about the historic homes and the families who lived and still live there. The standard tour was 30... More

Jazz pulled our carriage as we rode around Fernandina and learned about the lives and homes of the town's early residents.

We are Fernandina residents, and Boomer the draft horse is a local celebrity. We finally decided to try a ride around downtown Fernandina Beach and had a wonderful time! We learned so much about the history of our town, and the residents who lived here. This will now be a must-do when visitors come to stay!

This is a very pleasant, wonderful way to see Fernandina Beach. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. She might have been a bit canned, but I am sure she has done this hundreds, if not thousands, of times.

My family loves to go to Amelia Island and have been a couple of times. We have gone on the carriages with Cyndi and Jazz and with Shelby and Boomer. As a teen parent, you want things the teens will enjoy. Cyndi and Shelby are both entertaining and tell great stories about the town, homes, and even a few ghosts!... More

My husband and I chose to do this carriage ride and were very pleased with our experience! Cyndi was very knowledgeable and taught us many things about the history of the town. She made the stories that she told very exciting and fun. She also was extremely helpful in recommending places around town to eat, shop, or things to do.... More
