New Orleans news from Royal Carriages Tours

Posted by Kimmie Carlos on March 15, 2020

Royal Carriages cares deeply about your health, wellness, and safety. We’re in unnerving times, and we want to express our appreciation to our always thoughtful community as we work together to safely navigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

We know from many of you that getting away is often an important respite in the most stressful of times - whether during an intense period of work, school, or something else. If you're willing, well, and comfortable, we want you to know that we are here for you and welcome you to join us in the City of New Orleans whether you are a Native New Orleanian or seeing our city for the first time, and experience the simple joys of exploring our city.

 

Here are some of the things we are doing in response to the coronavirus:

  • We have intensified cleaning procedures to ensure our carriages are more deeply disinfected to prevent germs from spreading and to ensure your safety. 
  • We are closely monitoring the guidance of local health officials and the CDC for our area. We are following all the recommendations to provide for our guest’s safety and comfort on our tours.
  • Given the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus, we are forgoing our standard all sales final policy.  If you have a reservation and feel sick or otherwise do not feel up to joining us, please reach out to us 48 hours prior to your reservation and we will provide you with a  full refund and hope you can join for some fun in the future.

 

Until then please stay healthy and safe!

 

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.
