Tours

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.

Our guide KJ was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and made the tour fun! Our driver, Dr.John, seemed to have a pretty good handle on the area and where to go! Will definitely book Royal Carriages again for future trips. It lets you see areas of the Quarter and surrounding areas you might not venture to unless on one of these tours.
