Horse and Carriage Rides for Valentine’s Day


Carriage rides are available year-round, but are nearly required for a romantic date on Valentine’s Day in New Orleans. Choose from multiple tour companies, all of which have the experience down to an art. After all, for centuries horse and carriage was the only way to get around the city. Board near Jackson Square nearly 24/7, or charter your carriage ride for bigger parties or a special event. In many cases, you can simply hail a carriage strolling by, like you would a cab!

Knowledgeable drivers can share the history of the area, telling stories about times past or anecdotes about the sights. Bloody Mary’s Tours is a popular option with 20 years of experience. Choose from a variety of experiences and routes. Good Old Days Tours is another New Orleans veteran service.
