This is a tour company and the specialty is the horses! Some people come here just for the horses, some for the views, some for relaxing and the others to take a look into the history. These are horse tours mostly along the Stone Arch Bridge from where you get a breath taking view of the many beautiful historic buildings, parks, museums and others.
As you take a ride in these horses the guide will go on narrating the history of whatever catches your eye. The music of the water of the mighty river and the view of the St. Anthony Falls’ waters crashing across the stony suspension bridge. Another lovely view is that of the Nicollet Island. The Grand River Tour, as they call it is just like taking a ride along paradise.
- Group bookings are also taken.
- Check the official website of the company for current details on tour rates.
- Each tour lasts for about an hour.

Such a special time to share with your loved ones! It would perfect for a romantic date, friends night out or a family ride. It’s nostalgic to be on a carriage ride in such a busy city. The sites were beautiful. Our driver was very polite, offered to take our picture. Overall, a must do if you are staying in the Twin Cities!!
We enjoyed our ride despite the rain. The carriage was covered and we had lots of blankets so we stayed dry. My wife did this tour 8 years ago and wanted to surprise us with it as an early Christmas gift. The only downside was the driver did not do the verbal guided tour of the historic areas that we drove by. Her previous experience had a bigger carriage and full interactive guided tour. Since it was raining we understand that maybe that is why the tour was not given, although before leaving the destination the other driver said she would be giving one, not sure what happened. Overall all 4 of us still had fun and would do it again.
Took my wife on the one hour carriage ride for our anniversary. Had a very nice time. The slow carriage through the busy city was fun. Nice sites. Frank (our horse) was great as was our driver Meghan. Very friendly. Made for a good evening. Thank you for helping make our anniversary memorable in a good way.
My niece and I went on a carriage ride on Friday, August 31st at 7 PM. We had the best time! We arrived a bit early and the carriage was already there, waiting for us. Our tour guides were fabulous, well informed about the area and told great stories! I would highly recommend them!!! P.S. My niece wants to go again next summer :-)
We have been doing an annual fall carriage ride with another couple for the past six years. Every year it is always great service, on time and just a wonderful experience. This year we went from the carriage to the Hay Wagon and brought along all our kids. Just a wonderful way to see Minneapolis and enjoy the fall weather. You will not be disappointed.
