  • Maddie was our tour driver, she was funny and a good storyteller. We loved the fact she knew the names of all the horses, their teams, and their breed.

  • I purchased 4 tickets at the booth and asked about the stop at the fort. The attendant assured me that the fort was a stop that we would disembark and join a future carriage when we were finished...

  • Please stop talking. The carriage drivers don’t stop talking, ever. If there is nothing to point out the tour is filled with “jokes”. The arch is a wonderful stop on the tour but otherwise not worth.....  more

  • These carriage rides are great and the drivers are very entertaining with their narration. I wish there were a couple of more stops on the 2-hour ride but they're definitely worth it. We were the last carriage of the day, and a smaller group so we got to ride the comfy carriage coming back. The carriage in front of us had gone off trail and the horses were stuck with the carriage in the woods. Our driver hopped off and showed her superior skills and in about 10 minutes she had that carriage backed out and on the trail. That was fun to watch.
  • It was a wonderful trip around the island. John was our tour guide for the first half the trip, he was very good, very fun. The second half the trip the horses were giving our new guide grief wanting to scratch on trees, she was handling the big animals causing trouble well while still giving an informative tour. We really enjoyed the tours.
  • This is the best! They are super friendly and even let us pet the horses. If you ask, they will tell you the names of the horses and how old they are. Our horse loves red licorice. It cost $7 per person per ride. I also recommend you take the carriage tour around the park to view the arch rock, fort and butterfly conservation for about $30 pp.
  • Amazing experience! Previously we did the carriage tour and enjoyed it. This year we gifted ourselves the private tour and it was worth every dollar! Our driver Bob was knowledgeable and talked the ideal amount. He wasn’t a “Chatty Cathy” He let us soak in the sights and answered questions. He told us so much history we didn’t hear before and saw even more of the island. We talked about flowers too! Life is about experience and this is one you don’t want to miss!
  • Fantastic! This is very well organized and thoughtful company. Perfect way to see the island. Tour guides are knowledgeable and you know they work hard caring for their teams of horses and providing an exciting tour repeatedly to folks. Great way to see a little bit of the island without walking it. Would certainly recommend this to try and would absolutely do this again!
