#1 Carriage Tour on TripAdvisor. 

Royal Carriages is the premier carriage tour company in New Orleans, and the History & Haunts nighttime tour is a thrilling insider's view of the French Quarter after dark. With a knowledgeable and hospitable tour guide, you'll trot around the Quarter's streets hearing tales of ghosts and ghouls. What a wonderful way to see the town, learn a bit of history, and experience a one-of-a-kind adventure!

"Anyone coming to New Orleans needs to do the History and Haunts Carriage Tour. I thought I knew a lot about New Orleans, but I learned so much about details they don't print in the history books. I'm glad we ended up doing this tour on our first night because throughout our trip the stories came flooding back. Do this tour. Do it first. Then do another. Thank you, Royal Carriages! We will never forget you, and we'll definitely be back!"

Anyone coming to New Orleans NEEDS to do this tour! We did the History and Haunts Tour and even though I thought I knew a lot about NOLA, I learned so much, those details they don't print in the history books. Our tour guide Frank was SO knowledgeable and friendly, throwing in little-known tips and recommendations - you could tell he loves what he does, it really shows and it's infectious.
