“Great Tour!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We loved the 1 1/2 hr. Carriage tour. The tour took us into the interior of the island and we learned much local history. Since there are no motorized vehicles on Mackinac Island it was interesting to learn more about the draft horses that pull the carriages, haul freight, and pull the sleighs in the winter time. Would highly recommend the tour!

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is a great way to see so much of the island and get the story of the sites. Very friendly people. I used this as a "what to come back to" reference for my trip.

“Well Worth It!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

While having visited the island before, this was the 1st time any of us took a carriage tour. The staff, from buying tickets to our guide, was wonderful. The tour was 1 1/2 hours and went inward on the island which was great. Our guide was quite interactive and informative. Her jokes would have been better off unsaid as they were quite lame though. Because it was a cooler day, they had wool blankets underneath the seats for which we were glad! I may not have enjoyed the tour if it was a Summer day though. Because they sit 4 to a seat, you are arm to arm with people. If it was a warm day, I think I would have been too uncomfortable. But on a cool Autumn day, it was perfect!

“Good way to see the Island”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Nice way to see the Island and learn some of its history. They have a set route that takes you through town, to Arch Rock and Mackinac Fort. The tour lasts just over an hour.

“Stinky Ride”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Although my husband and I enjoyed it completely, it was stinky behind those horses! The guide was very pleasant and informative.
