#1 Carriage Tour on TripAdvisor. 

Royal Carriages is the premier carriage tour company in New Orleans, and the History & Haunts nighttime tour is a thrilling insider's view of the French Quarter after dark. With a knowledgeable and hospitable tour guide, you'll trot around the Quarter's streets hearing tales of ghosts and ghouls. What a wonderful way to see the town, learn a bit of history, and experience a one-of-a-kind adventure!

"Anyone coming to New Orleans needs to do the History and Haunts Carriage Tour. I thought I knew a lot about New Orleans, but I learned so much about details they don't print in the history books. I'm glad we ended up doing this tour on our first night because throughout our trip the stories came flooding back. Do this tour. Do it first. Then do another. Thank you, Royal Carriages! We will never forget you, and we'll definitely be back!"

This is my first Trip Advisor review. I had to make sure Peaches gets an apple! My husband, mother in law, and I stumbled upon Royal Carriages on our trip to New Orleans a couple weeks ago and Jonathan greeted us right away and answered our questions about what the ride would entail. We were sold right away and took the hour tour. Jonathan was super knowledgeable and friendly and answered all of our questions. I am still telling people about some of the historical facts we learned on our ride and walk through the cemetery. I wanted to do it all again but we were there for a short time and couldn't fit it in. I would highly recommend taking this tour and even told our uber driver (a local) about it. We will see you next time!
