“Private Carriage Tour”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Three of us couples spent a day recently on Mackinac Island (new experience for all of us). One couple was from NJ, one from New Zealand and then us from MI. We loved it and wished we had booked rooms to stay overnight one night. Loved the atmosphere. Ate at Goodfellows, which was recommended and food was excellent. We were going to take the public carriage tour but realized that for $4 more per couple, we could take a private tour and see so much more and learn so much more. We had an excellent tour guide with Nate. He was very informative and even extended our tour time. Highly recommend a private tour guide but keep in mind that if it's just a couple or 2, it will run more than the public carriage tour substantially. You might try and find other couples who would be willing to split the cost even if you don't know each other.

“soooo worth the money”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This was such an awesome tour. Saw so many things that I probably would not have seen and learned so many things I
I wouldnt have learned on my own. Get the discount package through Star line ferrys and it even includes the tix into the fort!

“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We rode our bikes around the Island last year...that was a bit too much for us, so this year we toured the Island with Island Carriage tours.. Enjoyed it very much and liked how we could stay at the Surrey Museum and Butterfly house for as long as we wanted and catch another carriage for the second part when we were ready. It was well worth the money for us. We bought the round trip ferry, carriage tour, butterfly house package.

“Carriage Tour”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We purchased the carriage ride tickets in a package. Had never taken the ride. So worth the money. Learned a lot about the island and the drivers were all great. Very enjoyable way for a family to get around the island and learn about the history of it. Would definitely take it again.
Keep up the great work.
