About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, LA

All aboard! All group carriage tours board at the carriage stand located at 700 Decatur Street. All tour participants must check in with a Royal Carriages Representative at least 5 mins prior to your reservation time. He or she can be found near the beginning of the line of carriages under the red umbrella wearing a bright red company shirt. Boarding for all group carriage tours may take up to 15 mins.

Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Jackson Square, 615 Pere Antoine Alley, New Orleans, LA 70116-3234

Let's ride! As your carriage departs from Jackson Square, your driver/guide will regale you with stories of the city's founding as the carriage passes through the historic French Quarter streets, past landmarks such as Saint Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, Napoleon House, and more. Expect stories that are both historical, entertaining and appropriate for all visitors.

You'll disembark the carriage and follow your driver/guide on a 15 to 20-minute walking tour of the cemetery where you'll discover why New Orleans uses above ground burials.

Great! Rebecca was our guide and she was incredible, along with Slim our mule. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered our questions. The cemetery tour was quite informative and very enlightening.
