In their new show, travel writers Jason Kessler and Jeff Miller determine if activities at the world's most popular vacation destinations live up to the hype. These seasoned travel writers explored with French Quarter on an authentic mule-drawn carriage with Charlotte Jones and Mrs. Parker. Both Jason and Jeff were an absolute pleasure to tour around and we look forward to seeing their mule-drawn adventure. 

What's the absolute funniest part of filming with Jason and Jeff? 

Probably the fact that they didn't know that Charlotte Jones was our newest carriage driver! She was super nervous but she took the challenge like any pro-guide would. We love Charlotte's humor and passion for New Orleans, it's buildings, musicians, and accepting culture. Outside of driving mule-drawn carriages, she can be found working with local non-profits, listening to live jazz, and hanging out with her two dogs named Laverne and Shirley. 


Those two guys are the hosts of the TV show. They told Charlotte to just act natural! Ha! Great job, y'all!! We're looking forward to seeing the final results. #mulesofinstagram #mules #likealocal #beatouristnola #carriagetour #carriageride #jacksonsquare #travelchannel #travel #explore by @neworleanscarriages

We hired the carriage to drive that Father of the Bride and the Bride to the wedding venue. What an arrival! The guest were all taking photos. It was a nice way for the two of them to chill before the big event. The driver took them on a nice little tour of NOLA before the wedding. It was worth every dime. Thanks, Royal Carriages.
