New Orleans news from Royal Carriages Tours

Royal Carriages featured on The Travel Channel's Trip Testers

Posted by on February 03, 2017

In their new show, travel writers Jason Kessler and Jeff Miller determine if activities at the world's most popular vacation destinations live up to the hype. These seasoned travel writers explored with French Quarter on an authentic mule-drawn carriage with Charlotte Jones and Mrs. Parker. Both Jason and Jeff were an absolute pleasure to tour around and we look forward to seeing their mule-drawn adventure. 

What's the absolute funniest part of filming with Jason and Jeff? 

Probably the fact that they didn't know that Charlotte Jones was our newest carriage driver! She was super nervous but she took the challenge like any pro-guide would. We love Charlotte's humor and passion for New Orleans, it's buildings, musicians, and accepting culture. Outside of driving mule-drawn carriages, she can be found working with local non-profits, listening to live jazz, and hanging out with her two dogs named Laverne and Shirley. 


Those two guys are the hosts of the TV show. They told Charlotte to just act natural! Ha! Great job, y'all!! We're looking forward to seeing the final results. #mulesofinstagram #mules #likealocal #beatouristnola #carriagetour #carriageride #jacksonsquare #travelchannel #travel #explore by @neworleanscarriages

What a great time we had with Michelle and her immaculately-kept mule, Desire, on our private tour! We have previously taken a group carriage tour and wanted to give our friends (NOLA 1st timers) the same great experience. Turns out every tour and guide is a little different and we learned a ton. So even if you have done a tour before, do it again! It will be just as fun and fascinating thanks to guides like Michelle, who attend lectures and research local history and, consequently, have a boatload of great information to share.
