I took my 10-year-old history-loving son to New Orleans. We took a carriage ride through this company. Amazing! Best carriage ride we have ever had in New Orleans. The driver shared so much interesting New Orleans history and my son hung on every word. He asked her a million questions throughout the tour. The tour was interesting to me as well and I learned a lot about New Orleans history, I didn't know. At one point, when we passed Pat O'Brian's, one of the waiters threw Mardi Gras beads to my son, which he thought was so cool. He had read a Magic Tree House book about John Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop and told me he wanted to see it when we when went to New Orleans. We actually stopped in front of it on our carriage ride, and the driver talked about it being a meeting place for Andrew Jackson, his pirate buddies, and other infamous characters. But through those meetings, Jackson gathered his army and later won the Battle of New Orleans. My son was beyond excited about this story! Definitely worth the money! This teacher/mom highly recommends it for families interested in seeing New Orleans by carriage and wanting to expose their children to New Orleans history.
