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.

Every time we go to New Orleans, we have avoided the touristy carriage rides. My daughter begs to go on a carriage ride every time and we finally gave in during our last visit. The carriage ride takes you through the French Quarter while your carriage driver gives a little bit of history and points out architectural interests. We were all most interested in the history of the Great New Orleans Fire where the priests did not allow the church bells to be rung as fire alarms. The ride and the history lesson were both entertaining and just long enough.

Surprise Engagement Proposals

Brittany & Tyler

Brittany & Tyler

As is a tradition in New Orleans, Brittany & Tyler ended their wedding with a Second Line parade. The bride and groom carried feathered umbrellas as guests waved personalized handkerchiefs. As the parade came to an end, the couple climbed into their wedding carriage and took a relaxing ride through the French Quarter. "It was so magical getting to be alone, sip champagne, and listen to the sounds of the city," says Brittney. "I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ending."
