Discover New Orleans The Authentic Way

Since 1941

Breathtaking views. Authentic New Orleans culture. We've specialized in it for 75 years (and counting.)

Since the birth of New Orleans in 1718, guests have toured the city by carriage. It's the proper way to see the French Quarter and the most authentic view of the city. For generations, our family has been passionate about providing the best tours around and it's this commitment that has made Royal Carriages the oldest commercial carriage operator in the United States. We look forward to keeping the tradition alive and to sharing it with our guests.

Join us on our next venture out.

Had a great half-hour tour of the French Quarter this afternoon. We went out about five o'clock and the weather was perfect. Our guide was Amy, and she shared a lot of great info about the history of the area. We've visited many times, but still learned a lot on the tour! Amy was down to earth, knowledgeable, and very fun to chat with. Gus the mule was a total sweetheart. Our year-old son enjoyed meeting him. This was our first carriage tour of the area, and when we do it again we'll look for Amy and the "ninja" mule Gus!

Meet Monica and Daniel who chose to have their ceremony at the very historic Immaculate Conception, and then it was only a short carriage ride away to the Federal Ballroom at the Security Center for their wedding reception. What an incredible way to celebrate forever together!
