Overview
Opt for an alternative sightseeing experience of New Orleans during a 1-hour horse and carriage tour of the French Quarter, undoubtedly the city’s most captivating enclave. While your guide provides entertaining narration, you’ll canter past landmarks such as Jackson Square, Napoleon House, and St. Louis Cathedral. Plus, you’ll stop at St. Louis Cemetery — home to the tomb of Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau — for a short walking tour.
What to Expect

All aboard! All group carriage tours board at the carriage stand located at 700 Decatur Street. All tour participants must check in with a Royal Carriages Representative at least 5 mins prior to your reservation time. He or she can be found near the beginning of the line of carriages under the red umbrella wearing a bright red company shirt. Boarding for all group carriage tours may take up to 15 mins. 

Let's ride! As your carriage departs from Jackson Square, your driver/guide will regale you with stories of the city's founding as the carriage passes through the historic French Quarter streets, past landmarks such as Saint Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, Napoleon House, and more. Expect stories that are both historical, entertaining and appropriate for all visitors. 

Optional Cemetery Tour! Carriage Tours booked between the hours of 10:00 am - 2:00 pm include a visit to Saint Louis Cemetery #1. After a 1-mile carriage ride, your carriage will park outside of the gates of Saint Louis Cemetery No. 1. You'll disembark the carriage and follow your driver/guide on a 15 to 20-minute walking tour of the cemetery where you'll discover why New Orleans uses above ground burials. The most famous burial in all of New Orleans is where the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, was laid to rest. Your carriage driver will show you this sought-after tomb and explain to you the story of Marie Laveau, in addition to answering questions you may have about the religion of Voodoo. 

Optional Neighborhood Tour! While Carriage Tours booked after 2:00pm do not include a visit to the cemetery, they do include a visit to a second historic neighborhood known as the Faubourg Marigny. This route gives visitors an opportunity to see more of New Orleans. This Creole Neighborhood, adored by lovers of architecture, is known for its colorful bohemian Creole Cottages, Shotgun Homes, and the Grand Mansions of Esplanade Avenue. This route also features Frenchmen Street, which is "where to locals go" for live jazz and more. 

Get back! After exploring one of the above mentioned destinations, you carriage will reroute itself back through the beautiful French Quarter before returning to Jackson Square.

We did, but when we got, if there were empty spots the drivers would try to fill them.
