Amazing and fun trip with Butch. The narrations were very insightful and attention grabbing. Would recommend as the first thing to try in New Orleans that way you know the city better and have a greater understanding of the places to see during your trip.

After walking in the humid air and heat it was nice to sit back in the shade of the carriage and be given an informative tour of the area.

Kaliecia gave us a very informative and entertaining tour of the French Quarters starting at Jackson Square. Claudia, the mule, is so smart and gentle. It was a treat to watch her work. I would definitely do this again.

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods

They usually like to wait until the carriage is full = less $ per person. They do offer tours for just couples though. No set times. Just show up & when enough people get on, then you're off.

Right in front of Jackson Square & the Cathedral. 30 min rides usually run 20.00 per person; while an hour long ride is 40 per.
