My family & I sought out Royal Carriages based on Trip Advisor ratings, and it was a very good choice. Our tour guide Talletha took us as a walk-up reservation late on a Sunday morning in June, and we were able to get our tour after a half-hour tour she was just starting. We booked the French Quarter plus St. Louis Cemetery #1 tour to extend our time, and we thoroughly enjoyed both parts of the tour.
Our mule Queenie was well-behaved and she responded well to her driver throughout the tour. Talletha was very knowledgeable of New Orleans history and current events/attractions, and she was eager to field questions & made suggestions for us to follow after our carriage tour. She was especially entertaining during our cemetery stop.
Overall, this was an excellent New Orleans tour & well worth the price. We would recommend Royal Carriages for anyone wanting to learn more about the city in a comfortable & relaxing way.
