CASH ONLY - $20 PER RIDER (Adult or Child) - COLLECTED AT END OF RIDE. There, you've been warned (because I know some people don't bother reading the tiny little signs posted at the bottom of the carriage). Anyway, these tour carriages can be hit or miss.  You really have to gauge the personality of the driver from chatting with them a bit before committing to a ride. If the person is someone you feel you could handle a half hour (or hour for $40 per person) with, then hop on!  BEWARE: if you take a seat on a carriage as the only passengers, the carriage driver will have you sit in the carriage for about a half hour while he/she tries to tempt other passersby to take a ride.  So, you may want to hop on a carriage who already has two people sitting on it for faster service.Our driver was super friendly and knowledgeable about the city, its rich (and dark) history and will answer you general questions. My family really enjoyed the tour. More...

Adam was our driver and we had a great time. Very informative about old New Orleans.

One word...Chica!  This is certainly worth the 30-45 min tour of the French Quarter without being inundated with too much information!

It was already a Merry Christmas Eve when we were picked up by David and Baby Girl for a great evening carriage ride through the FQ. It was a crisp clear night w a great big Moon. The streets were not that busy due to the holiday and some of the most popular restaurants closed in observance. David knew everything about the history of the French Quarter and shared generously with us. The Cabildo/ Jackson Square/ Info on rents of apts/ special history of certain homes/ a little voodoo history- David knew it all. Our ride with Mid City Carriages made our holiday extra special.

Memories are amazing things, the best ones are the foundations of what is yet to come ... I found myself wanting to create a hand made Christmas gift for my love with some of our most memorable moments. I came across photos of our 1998 trip to NOLA. I remember so clearly the carriage ride through the French Quarter and how relaxed and comfortable we felt as our driver guided us along, filling us in about the history and culture of the area. We had just spent a morning of shopping and sight seeing so the afternoon ride was much appreciated. We are planning a return trip for next year and I wanted to see if Mid-City was still around, I'm so happy to know that indeed it is! A 4 star better than most tours in NOLA More...

One of the highlights of our trip! We had David - In his purple suite -  and he was one of the BEST guides we have ever had! !!! He was funny, entertaining and had such a twinkle in his eyes as he told us different stories.  He was extra sweet to my Mama and Aunt who are in there 70's and had a hard time getting in / out of the carriage. If anyone is looking for a New Orlean's experience, find David.  He is one of the good ones!!!! Well worth the $18 / person.  We even ran into David as he was giving another tour and it felt like we were running into an old friend. More...

This is a great way to see the French Quarter. David was our guide and he was very informed. He provided a detailed history about various buildings and locations. He was also exceptionally friendly. The rides were $18 pp for about a 45 minute tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the French Quarter without doing a lot of walking! More...

A nice way to view the French Quarter. Our mule was Zulu and her driver was Ed. He was great, very knowledgable about the area and all in all gave us a great tour. It's a nice way to see the place.

This business offers carriage drawn service. Drivers are at Jackson Square but you can reserve mule pulled carriages for tours of downtown or hay rides for kids birthday parties. They also provide limousine service  (pick ups to/from the airport or special occasion rentals). I have used there services quite a few times. It is a small family owned business located in Treme.  Their prices are reasonable and I have found them to be very accomodating. More...
