We are a horse-drawn carriage company.We provide guided tours through Historic district of Cape May.We would like to fully explain why we do not accept credit cards.We are located at the corner of Ocean and Washington St. we have a small unprotected mobile table that has no power,no phone and no protection from the weather.We cannot get a phone jack which is needed to take credit cards because we do not have a store front.Cape May is an island with terrible satellite and cell reception therefore the mobile credit card devices also do not help us.There are other very expensive mobile devices that are weather sensitive and do to the fact that we have no protection from the elements ,that is not an option either.We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to some .There is an ATM located directly behind where we are parked.We hope that you enjoy the horse and carriages and the joy, and beauty they bring to the hundreds of people who ride each year.

I highly recommend this carriage ride. First I was impressed by their care of their horses. Prior to our ride the horse was given a rest and a cool down and brush down before we got on. Our driver was informative about both horses and the area. I reserved the Cinderella carriage which is absolutely beautiful-they only have one though... More

We have driven through cape may multiple times but have never gotten to enjoy it like this. The carriage ride was relaxing, informative, and fun. We wished they offered a longer ride . We definitely would do it. We would do this again for sure. We even had a grumpy noncompliant child with us that day. This even mellowed him... More

Booked a Cinderella carriage ride for my daughter early in the AM but there was a mixup on the reservation when we arrived at our scheduled time and we weren't able to take that one. Just an honest mistake and it happens. They did all they could to accommodate us including a free ride about an hour later and a... More

We very much enjoyed the carriage ride throughout Cape May. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we only stumped her with one question out of many! Definitely a must do!

I rented the Cinderella for our 4-1/2 year old granddaughter. She dressed in her Cinderella dress and loved the surprise! We booked for 8:30 so the lights would be on. I can't imagine a better gift. A memory none of us will soon forget. The driver was outstanding...

Another "must do" when you're in Cape May. The horses are so gentle and the drivers are very knowledgeable about not only the history of the town and architecture, but they'll throw little tidbits at you like the first overhead flush toilette being patented by Thomas Crapper. There's something you don't learn every day.

Har har Thomas Crapper indeed,and the fact the bathroom sat on stilts off the side of the house because ahem, they overflowed very often and you might as well plant flowers under it.We do love our history and our HORSES !!!They are draft type horses and are generally very gentle.We do have to keep an eye on because they have...

We had beautiful weather and decided to take the 30 minute tour before dinner. The driver was knowledgeable about the history of Cape May and the 30 minute length was just right to keep us interested.

We booked the larger carriage so all 11 of us could take the ride together. The carriage was very nice and the driver was outstanding with her knowledge and presentation of the sites in cape May. All of us, from ages 3 to 68, had a wonderful ride!

What a great reason to get the whole family together,A carriage ride!!The wagonette holds 8-10 adults and various size kids,it's just a big jumble of fun in there sometimes.The little kids get to sit just behind the driver,and can watch the horse do his job.I'm so glad to hear your gang had a fun time, we aim to please.

We recently rode in the Cinderella Carriage with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 small granddaughters. It was a magical experience for all of us, our little granddaughters felt like princesses. We chose the 8:30 P M ride so the carriage was lit and at that time of night the sky thru the top of the carriage was so beautiful. Our... More
