Overview

We are a horse-drawn carriage company.We provide guided tours through Historic district of Cape May.We would like to fully explain why we do not accept credit cards.We are located at the corner of Ocean and Washington St. we have a small unprotected mobile table that has no power,no phone and no protection from the weather.We cannot get a phone jack which is needed to take credit cards because we do not have a store front.Cape May is an island with terrible satellite and cell reception therefore the mobile credit card devices also do not help us.There are other very expensive mobile devices that are weather sensitive and do to the fact that we have no protection from the elements ,that is not an option either.We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to some .There is an ATM located directly behind where we are parked.We hope that you enjoy the horse and carriages and the joy, and beauty they bring to the hundreds of people who ride each year.

Always learn something new about Cape May from the drivers. Great value. They put the tops on the carriages to keep us dry

So nice to take a leisurely tour of Cape May. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Cape May. I have always done my own walking tours but we went on some streets I had never explored. Very enjoyable!

Informative but did go through several streets multiple times (unsure if they have to stay within a certain jurisdiction). Relaxing treat after dinner and ice cream. Price fair given time and information imparted (also benching against NYC carriage rides).More
