With a leisurely carriage ride you will learn the history of Lexington. The drivers are pleasant and knowledgeable. It is a wonderful experience. As the weather gets cooler bring along warm clothing or a blanket.

Excellent carriage ride. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. The carriage was well maintained and clean, the length of the ride was just right, about one hour.

Loved our guide, Angel. She was extremely informative. I suggest bringing a blanket when it is chilly. We were so glad to have one and it truly made the experience more romantic and enjoyable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our buggy tour of Lexington. The horses are well cared for and knew the route quite well. Our driver and tour guide was informative, calm, and humorous! We had a good time! We were lucky to have a beautiful day.
