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.

This was the BEST GHOST TOUR ever! Fiona is articulate, well-informed, enthusiastic and energetic! She was very charming and held your attention. The only thing more energetic than Fiona was her amazing and well-trained mule Chicory! Never have I seen a smarter mule! She knew how to navigate amongst all the people, cars and distractions that abound in the French Quarter. She followed every instruction to the letter - meaning she understood English and would without much effort on Fiona's part go exactly where she was told. We were very entertained and give this lovely lady and her beautiful mule 5 stars!
