We took a private carriage ride. They were very accommodating and selected a nearby location to pick us up. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the historic district one clip clop at a time. People on the phone were helpful as well.

The carriage ride throughout the historic district of Savannah, GA was very interesting and beautiful. Our guide, Jason, was very informative and could answer all our questions.

We were anxious to take this tour because we love horses and history and had gone on a very informative ride when we were in Charleston. We had already walked several of the squares with guidebook in hand but were anxious to learn more. The carriage did pick us up at the Hamilton-Turner house where we were staying which was very nice. We paid for a private tour ($90) and were told that the tour lasted 50 minutes. Our guide was friendly and cordial but I'm afraid we didn't learn too much more than what we learned just walking around by ourselves. We didn't cover all of the squares and arrived back at our hotel at 36 minutes past the hour. We had spent about 5 minutes allowing the horse to drink from the watering trough near the end of the tour. I would have rated this experience much higher if the ride had been the length that was promised.

My husband and I lucked out and got a wagonnette all to ourselves like a private tour! I wavered between a carriage tour, a walking tour, and the trolley, and I'm SO glad we went with the carriage! The weather was beautiful and the leisurely pace is perfect to really look at what the guide is telling you about and to take pictures if you want (the trolleys move too fast and it's hard to get pictures). Savannah is a very walkable city, but I was glad of the break to sit and enjoy the atmosphere and listen to the history.

This tour company leaves from in front of the Hyatt on the riverfront, so if you're shopping down there it's right next door to you. We paid $38 for two adults and thought it was a really good value for the information and overview of Savannah we received. We hit the major historic squares and houses and felt neither gypped nor overwhelmed. Of note, tips for the driver are not included, so bring a little cash. Our guide was Christa, and she was a lot of fun and answered all of our questions knowledgeably. Our horse was Pepper, and he was beautiful, wonderful and had a beard. :)

We would not hesitate to recommend this tour to others! If you are wavering, just do it! Fabulous, relaxing way to learn about and enjoy seeing the city.

It was a chilly morning but they were right on time and came with blankets for us. The guide was cheerful and told us all about the city as we rode through. She asked about our interests and modified her information to us. A wonderful romantic morning.
