Sarah and Armstrong made our evening!! Sarahs storytelling skills are amazing. She gives you a ton of information but delivered in a style that isn’t overwhelming. Being in the carriage gave you a feeling of being away from the crowds and very personal!!!!!

History, Ghosts, & Praline

The tour guide was very engaging and funny. His moustache was awesome. The mule, Praline, was the bestest of girls. We already knew a few of the stories; but he still presented them in a new and interesting way. We learned a lot about the history and the ghosts of New Orleans in one of the most enjoyable tours we've experienced.

This tour is light on information, but is a fun relaxing ride around the French Quarter. We especially appreciated this as an evening activity when the museums were closed.

The 10:30PM carriage ride was fun and just enough creepy vibes to make it spooky! Which added to the overall experience. Our guide was very informative with a great sense of humor! I do recommend this excursion!
