Owner description: Why walk or ride a bus, when an intimate mule-drawn adventure is an option?

“Must Do this Tour!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Be sure and take the two hour tour for $37 per person. So much info to learn about New Orleans, plus the cemetery. We actually got out at the cemetery and took pictures of the tomb of Nicholas Cage and Marie LeVeau. Our guide told us all about the cemetery and how many people are in each tomb. Our guide also recommended places to stop and have a drink, and eat. James was just a wealth of information.

“En français!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We found a French speaking guide, which gave the tour a special flavour. Great way to relax after a long day of walking, while continuing to discover French Quarter Architecture and history. Circled on Frenchman street in Marigny. Seemed expensive at first (18-22$ pp for 30 min), but it ended up being well worth the money.

“Adam was a terrific tour guide...knowledgeable,”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

funny, and entertaining. Paid $18 plus tip for a thirty minute tour through the French Quarter. The carriage tour is a good way to get introduced to the French Quarter without overworking your feet. Love the way the company takes such good care of the mules.

“We take a carriage ride 3-4 times a year!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My husband and I always try to take a carriage ride when in NOLA. The drivers are so knowledgeable and interesting. Also, we learn something new, go through a new neighborhood, every time. Highly recommend with or without kids. the cemetery is really cool and usually you can get out and walk around. They will also take you to a couple of bars that are notable, old, famous too!

“Good tour”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Its a good way to see the French Quarter while learning the history of the city. I do think this is aimed more at couples but could be done for others as well. It makes a stop to get drinks along the way as well.
