New Orleans news from Royal Carriages Tours

Posted by Kimmie Carlos on March 19, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to temporarily close the operation of tours beginning March 19th, 2020, and will reopen July 3th, 2020.

This is in keeping with the declaration by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards regarding containment of Covid19 – the Corona Virus. It is determined to be in the best interest of our guests and our employees.  

Please check back with us for updates.

If you are scheduled between now and July 3rd, 2020 and would like to reschedule, please contact us at [email protected] 

All of the mules and team members cannot wait to see you when we resume operations. In the meantime please support your local businesses and buy gift cards. 

 

Sincerely, 

Royal Carriages Management

 

I am a local and had friends in from Arizona. In our climate walking in the Quarter in the heat of summer can be difficult. Their time here was limited so I decided to book the private 1-hour carriage ride. Very good choice! So glad we did. Our guide Thiebaud was knowledgeable and funny. We also chatted with another driver while waiting to be picked up. She was very helpful and you could tell she really loved her mule. The mules are cleaned and well cared for. They give them snacks, water, and breaks. Our mule was Blue and he liked carrots. I am a New Orleanean and I learned a few things and was reminded of some I forgot! We did the Quarter and The area around Frenchmen Street. Afterward, we ate lunch at Antoine's. It was a wonderful day I won't soon forget! A splurge but well worth every penny. Thanks, guys!
