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.

Beautiful ride through historic Cape May -- seeing and learning about all the beautiful victorian houses along the ride. Very knowledge staff, calm horses and so much fun. Highly recommend. Also learned of some of the "ghosts" who reside in Cape May.

My bf and I did this on a whim and we had a really nice time. We went on a short tour of Victorian Cape May and learned some great facts about the town. The carriage offers a blanket if you're cold and polite drivers. I wish it had been a bit longer for the price ($50/2 ppl) but it... More

The 30 minute ride is $25 per person. We enjoyed listening the the driver give us tidbits of the history of Cape May. She also answered questions we had. Only gave it a 4 because it was a bit short for the price. 45 minutes would have rated a 5! If you enjoy carriage rides, don't miss!

If you've never taken a horse and carriage ride in Cape May my advice is to try it as I know you will like it. We chose a sunset time of day for our ride and it was lovely. Our driver was very knowledgable about Cape May history and we enjoyed our time learning new facts.

Cape May is so beautiful, and this is a really nice way to see a lot of the town at a leisurely pace. It is a little pricey if you're on a budget, but they have to cover their expenses and make a profit, so, it's not going to be cheap. If you can afford it, I'd say it's definitely... More

Hi,I'm sorry your most recent ride felt just mediocre to you.You can come to the booking booth and mention that you weren't satisfied any time you come.You are correct that the drivers are human and some are better speakers,and you can tip accordingly.Maybe they need to change up their game. I want customers to get the best possible ride as... More

Horses can actually work long hours in the real world,we just choose to give both horse and drivers a bit of break.Some of the horses will drop their heads and take a short nap,others beg for attention or play in their water buckets.Sam enjoys dumping his bucket so I'll come running to fuss at him. Thank you so much for... More

A few years back my parents took me and their grandchildren on this carriage ride in Cape May. It was a very relaxed and educational tour of the small town and we all enjoyed it very much. Hope to get back there at some time to do it again.

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

The Cinderella carriage is just Fabulous !!!Everyone seems to enjoy this ride,last week we even had Cinderella herself,driving her steed Royal. Royal is a lovely fellow who enjoys attention and his brushing.Although horses can work in all sorts of weather,we like to keep ours as cool and comfortable as possible. We drip sweat while the steeds get a bath,and that's... 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
