OLDEST CARRIAGE COMPANY IN U.S. BRING REIGNS TO OLD COVINGTON

 

Royal Carriages teams up with St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission to begin touring on Louisiana’s Northshore.

 

Royal Carriages is thrilled to announce expansion into St. Tammany Parish, bringing their generations-long New Orleans carriage tour to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain.

 

Rides depart from the Marsolan Feed and Seed Store in Covington, Louisiana, right next to the area’s Trailhead Museum. Tours run every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

 

“We are excited to partner with the St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission to bring a favorite New Orleans tradition to the charming town of Covington,” said Royal Carriages Director of Marketing Kimmie Carlos. “As the oldest carriage company in the country at 79-years strong, we want all of Louisiana’s Northshore to experience history with us as we move into the holiday season and create new family traditions.”

 

Visitors will have the option for a half hour or full hour carriage tour of Old Covington which includes an expert guide to narrate the history of the area. The nationally recognized attraction also has plans for private tours, weddings, and private events.

My family & I sought out Royal Carriages based on Trip Advisor ratings, and it was a very good choice. Our tour guide Talletha took us as a walk-up reservation late on a Sunday morning in June, and we were able to get our tour after a half-hour tour she was just starting. We booked the French Quarter plus St. Louis Cemetery #1 tour to extend our time, and we thoroughly enjoyed both parts of the tour. Our mule Queenie was well-behaved and she responded well to her driver throughout the tour. Talletha was very knowledgeable of New Orleans history and current events/attractions, and she was eager to field questions & made suggestions for us to follow after our carriage tour. She was especially entertaining during our cemetery stop. Overall, this was an excellent New Orleans tour & well worth the price. We would recommend Royal Carriages for anyone wanting to learn more about the city in a comfortable & relaxing way.
