Ride Royal Private Carriage Tour

Let our expert guides tailor a tour just for you! This unique one hour carriage experience travels through the French Quarter and beyond. These more intimate carriages seat 1-4 people per party.

"Worth every penny"

While the enchanting city of New Orleans offers inquisitive travelers a variety of tours to choose from during their visit, there can truly be no better way to see the Crescent City than from the back of your own personal and private mule-drawn carriage. Royal Carriages has been in business since 1941, and this family-run tour company continues to welcome New Orleans' guests in style just as it did over 81 years ago. 

Boasting expert guides and well-cared for mules, Royal Carriages serves as goodwill ambassadors, taking guests throughout the French Quarter and beyond, with private carriage tours that can be personally customized to suit your interests. 

You've never seen a city like this before! When you are in a city as unique and endearing as New Orleans, no simple tour will do. See the sights in style aboard a comfortable carriage, and see why New Orleans remains one of the top tourist destinations in the country.

"We loved our private carriage ride through the French Quarter with Royal Carriages. We had previously taken both a bus tour and a cemetery tour and had heard just about all similar stories about New Orleans, but on the carriage ride, we learned a lot more and interesting facts as well as an introduction to the architecture of that part of the city. Our carriage driver was a friendly and robust guide who imparted her love of the city in her words on the tour. The carriage mule jingled along at just the right pace. I highly recommend taking this trip."
