Horse and Carriage Tours
For hundreds of years, the only way to get around New Orleans was by horse and carriage. You can still experience the leisurely pace our ancestors did in one of several carriage tours offered today.
Mule-drawn carriages can be boarded on the Decatur Street side of Jackson Square almost any hour of the day or they can be chartered for special occasions and large parties. Or you can simply hail an empty carriage from the street. They are a scenic and rustic way to tour the storied streets of the French Quarter while being entertained and enlightened on the city’s history by a knowledgeable driver. He or she will stir your fantasies and funnybones with true-to-life stories and amusing anecdotes about the Quarter and its colorful cast of characters through the ages. The listings below will tell which tours are available and how to contact them.
