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.

Enjoyed an evening ride through the historic part of town. Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. I love hearing the clip clop of the horses feet especially while we were staying at a B&B recently. Expensive but worth it for a romantic evening.

When we heard the horses clop by our B&B, I told my husband we HAVE to take a carriage ride. We took the "historic" ride and received a really nice history of Cape May and its beautiful homes. Definitely worth it!

$50 for the 1st half hour...yikes! Eating establishments are close by, but VERY expensive. Not a place to bring the family unless you plan on playing at that shore, staying in a cheap rental( off season), and cooking your own food.

Very nostalgic way to take a tour of Cape May! Rides take about a half-hour, and your driver will fill you in on the history and little-known secrets of Victorian Cape May. Take an evening ride, when the sun's down and houses are lit up,...More
