Royal Carriages Mule-Drawn History Tours are the best way to see the sights while discovering the rich history, culture and architecture that New Orleans' famous French Quarter is known for.

For decades, the team at Royal Carriages has made it their life’s work to provide the best tours of New Orleans. It’s what we’ve done for three generations, and it’s what has made us the oldest carriage tour provider in the nation. It’s a joy and an honor to share our culture with guests visiting the city, and we’re proud of the feedback we get each and every day.

As a top recommendation on TripAdvisor, a fan favorite on Facebook, and a dedicated member of the French Quarter community, we look forward to welcoming you to town. As guests have been introduced to the city by way of carriage for centuries, it’s the most authentic, age old vantage point of the “Big Easy” that exists. When you go back home and tell friends about your trip to NOLA, make sure that story includes a little time with Royal Carriages.

My husband and I took a 1/2 hour tour of the French Quarter during the day with Jonathan and his mule Queenie - Jonathan was very knowledgeable and funny and Queenie did an excellent job of navigating the narrow streets of the French Quarter. We did a group tour with 2 other couples who we did not know, but that made it even more interesting and fun. It was great to learn a little more about the interesting history and architecture of New Orleans and a fun way to see more of the city than we could have seen on foot. We booked our tour through Royal Carriages sales manager, Kimmie, who could not have been nicer or more kind and accommodating! Thank you all so much for a great experience! New Orleans, in general, is a really fun town with super friendly people who just want to make sure you have a good time! We'll be back!
