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.

This is a treat from the booking to the touring. If you would like to know more about New Orleans, then I encourage you to take a tour. We took an hour night tour and it was Fantastic!! Our tour guide was full of history! I wished the ride went on a little longer because I wanted to know and see more. This is a must when visiting!! Thank you Royal Carriages for making our 30 Wedding Anniversary memorable!
