My husband, myself and our 5 month old son went on the carriage ride. They were so accommodating allowing my son to stay in his car seat on the carriage. Ken was our driver and the horse was Mike. Very knowledgeable of the area. He even recommended great restaurants in the area. I would recommend this tour to everyone and... More

We have taken this tour twice, once as a couple and most recently with our two young children. Both times we were lucky enough to get Andrea and the wonderful Leo (the horse) to accompany us. Andrea is a great story teller and adapted her stories to make them more child oriented for the tour with the family. The price... More

Aaron/Erin was our guide and carriage driver. Extremely knowledgeable, articulate and humorous when the occasion demanded, he really knows his adoptive home, much more than other guides I have had. He also took great care to praise his horse, Rudy, who is equally versed in the quaint ways of St. Augustine traffic. Our tour was at dusk, a perfect time,... More

Our daughter loves horses, so we wanted to do this for her. Our guide was Christina and our four-legged guide was Brock. The cost was a flat fee of 85.00, and let me tell you that it was absolutely worth every penny. Unlike the cheesy, pre-recorded trolley rides, Christina gave us a very personalized and interactive guided tour. If we... More

We used country carriages for our wedding at Castillo de San Marcos. I spoke to the owner several times, she was prompt, professional, and easy to book. To top it off they were on time, actually a few minutes early. We ended up having more time for our victory lap around the down town area. Highly recommend if you are... More

We own a condo in St, Augustine and our daughter bought us a carriage ride for Christmas. Hard to believe we have lived here for 5 years and have never done this type of tour. We learned so much about the city and it's history. It was a nice, pleasant, unhurried ride through main roads and side streets. Aaron did... More

My brother decided to surprise my mother for Mother's Day with a carriage ride. Mark was our driver and Ella was the horse. Mark did an excellent job reciting the historical facts of the town highlights, especially the info on Henry Flagler, with a few jokes thrown in for good measure. We stopped at the Memorial Presbyterian Church and were... More

With two couples, we decided to spring the $20 each for this carriage tour. It was a beautiful day and a lovely way to see the old town, but our driver was hot and tired and droned through his spiel - we could barely hear him at times much less understand him. Which was reflected in the $10 tip.

We were able to book this tour through our hotel and the carriage picked us up at our hotel. It was a leisurely tour: our carriage driver was very knowledgeable and informative.
