Handicap Information
Carriages are a great way for handicapped or disabled people to experience the French Quarter. If they can walk up steps with assistance, they will be able to board our carriages with ease. We do provide stepping stools and assistance. For people with no mobility, no ability to stand, these people may not be able to access the seat of the carriage. Our private carriages are more open air, so there is more ability for these individuals to be placed into those carriages, or larger people. Wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers can be left behind at our Jackson Square boarding location, and our on-site supervising manager will look after them. We suggest that all important items be taken on the ride.

Cancellation Policy
Customers may cancel at least 72 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 72 hour period will not be eligible for a refund. The carriages are covered and therefore operate rain or shine, but if weather is severe and the vendor calls of the tour you may be rescheduled for a later time/date or a full refund will be issued. No-shows will not be refunded. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 72 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    Great tour on a carriage through French quarter. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Visit to St Louise Cemetery #1 was a must: can't get in without a tour guide. Overall a must to experience old NOLA.

    Mike and Patsy

    Our guide, Mike and wonderful mule, Patsy, both did a great job! Mike was very knowledgeable and informative. Patsy did a great job of getting us around the French quarter! Kudos to both of them! We even arrived an hour early just to check on location and they were able to get us on an earlier tour! Love that! New Orleans is a beautiful city with lots of history! Glad we came back to visit again.
