Tours

Royal Carriages Mule-Drawn History Tours are the best way to see the sights while discovering the rich history, culture and architecture that New Orleans' famous French Quarter is known for.

For decades, the team at Royal Carriages has made it their life’s work to provide the best tours of New Orleans. It’s what we’ve done for three generations, and it’s what has made us the oldest carriage tour provider in the nation. It’s a joy and an honor to share our culture with guests visiting the city, and we’re proud of the feedback we get each and every day.

As a top recommendation on TripAdvisor, a fan favorite on Facebook, and a dedicated member of the French Quarter community, we look forward to welcoming you to town. As guests have been introduced to the city by way of carriage for centuries, it’s the most authentic, age old vantage point of the “Big Easy” that exists. When you go back home and tell friends about your trip to NOLA, make sure that story includes a little time with Royal Carriages.

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!
