Dixie Bohemia French Quarter Carriage Tour

The daytime carriage tour is perfect for those looking for a historic exploration of more than just Bourbon Street. You'll learn all about the French Quarter, plus you'll get to visit either Saint Louis Cemetery #1 or the historic Faubourg Marigny.

"An awesome way to see and learn the history of The French Quarter and New Orleans."

You and your guests are going to love the opportunity to sit back and relax while your carriage driver unfolds 300 years of fun-filled history on your mule-drawn carriage ride. We cover the storied history of New Orleans, discussing everything from our resilient culture to the aging architecture.  

"Get out of the crowd and off your feet while taking in the French Quarter on a carriage ride. New Orleans offer many tours, but what sets the Royal Carriage tours apart is the small groups and the ability to relax while taking in the sights and history. On the tour, you can cover a large area of the French Quarter, learn interesting history of the area, and get off of your feet and relax. The driver/guide is well-informed and with such a small group can answer individual questions. Lots of fun!"

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.
