Hi my name is Zoe and my horses name is Prince he is a beautiful Golden belge. When you get on board we will start by taking pictures of you and of course of Prince as he poses for every picture and makes sure he's in it! So we are off to start our guided visit of old Montreal. An experience I am certain you will enjoy! At the end of our visit we will bring you back to where we started, and this is the part that Prince particularly enjoys! It's time for his carrot. He adores carrots and he will even give you a kiss to get one!!! So please come and see us we will definitely enjoy meeting you. There are two tours in old Montreal a half hour tour where you will visit the oldest part of old Montreal. Inside the old fortification walls all the way to the harbor and back to the church. This costs 53$ tax included for the tour if you enjoyed your tour tips are greatly appreciated. Or we have an hour tour witch when ever possible we can visit all of old Montreal. Depending on traffic and/or construction. This costs 85$ tax included and tips are greatly appreciated only if you enjoyed your tour. The only days the horses aren't out is during the day if the weather is hot 30oc until 7 pm when they come out. Or if there are constant thunderstorms . Weather permitting the carriages are out every day from 10 am to 7 pm . Give me a call and we can arrange your visit! Hope to see you soon!!

We took the 1 hour calèche ride and you really get to see the old city. The driver knew the buildings, what they used to be and he knew some history. Fun way to see things as a family.

We really enjoyed the horse drawn carriage ride around Old Montreal. The weather was perfect for the 40 minute ride. The driver was full of facts and interesting tidbits.The only drawback was a lot of noisey road construction.
