Discover New Orleans The Authentic Way

Since 1941

Breathtaking views. Authentic New Orleans culture. We've specialized in it for 75 years (and counting.)

Since the birth of New Orleans in 1718, guests have toured the city by carriage. It's the proper way to see the French Quarter and the most authentic view of the city. For generations, our family has been passionate about providing the best tours around and it's this commitment that has made Royal Carriages the oldest commercial carriage operator in the United States. We look forward to keeping the tradition alive and to sharing it with our guests.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Kim and her beautiful mule "Sugar" on our visit to New Orleans. My husband and I passed these beautiful carriages several times and debated about the cost of taking such a tour. My husband surprised me and we took a half hour tour around the French Quarter that was MORE than a valuable and fun experience! We thought it would be just a ride around the French Quarter, but we were guided by houses with a rich history and we learned SO MUCH about the history of the French Quarter. Don't pass up this opportunity to get the best views of the French Quarter!
