Attraction details
Owner description: The Borges Sleigh and Carriage Rides is still a family operated business at the same location in South Lake Tahoe for over 42 years. Over the years, other locations have been used such as Squaw Creek & Northstar Resorts. Our 1 hour or 30 minute narrated sleigh ride travels along the Pony Express Trail then over the meadow and though the woods...to a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe. A picnic area, snow play area & pony rides are some of the addition activities. Hot drinks & souvenirs are also available.

“Field Ride”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2008

We were excited at the thought of a sleigh ride and read about Borges Sleigh Rides in South Lake Tahoe on the Internet. They claim " Your Sleigh Ride adventure will take you over the meadow,
through the woods to grandmother's house and to a peaceful place overlooking one of Lake Tahoe's most spectacular views." Our "ride" lasted 25 mins. and cost $35.00. We only went around an open field and spent more time stopped while our guide talked a little about the surroundings but mostly about his life. The horses only walk except for the last 10 seconds when they are allowed to go a little faster but not much. We were also pressured to purchase our photo that they took before the ride that shows the beat up side of the sleigh with a big green tractor behind us. It didn't really capture anything we wanted but felt sorry for the photographer when he came down from the price of $20.00 to $5.00. The whole thing really is a rip off.

“A rip off in the snow”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2008

We paid way to much for way to little. We bought a package deal of dinner and a sleigh ride to find out that you get ripped off. The ride is in a field and then for dinner you have to drive yourself downtown to a restaurant . You end up paying 70 dollars more than if you got it separate. When we asked for a refund for the dinner their emloyee Dwight was rude and refused, telling me that they offer no refunds. He implied that I should have read their web page more carefully, but in fact we had bought the tickets at his little hut in the snow. I would not recommend there package deal of a dinner and ride unless you have extra money to waste!!!
