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.

My husband and I went on the French Quarter and Marigny tour. Our guide, Jamie, did a wonderful job of telling us the history of the area, and Gus the mule did an awesome job of taking us around. We loved seeing everything at a slower pace so we could really take everything in and see it. We took the tour our first full day in the city and were able to find many of the restaurants and places we wanted to visit in the French Quarter. Jamie also helped up by giving recommendations. This is a must-do while in the city.

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!
