New Orleans news from Royal Carriages Tours

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

I had no clue how rich the history of New Orleans was, this was our first visit, and we couldn't have had better guides. James is friendly and a true historian. He took his time, answered any questions and took the time to get to know us. Pearl is amazing, beautiful and patient. She was able to navigate the entire tour at our pace. The ride was smooth and a lot of fun. I highly recommend Royal Carriages, and ask for James and Pearl. Best tour guides, they make the trip extra special.
