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.

A good tour that explains a lot of the history of Cape May. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It's a bit expensive, $50 for 2 people for 30 minutes.

Thank you for a positive review.It is a chance to relax and learn about our town while enjoying a ride with our beautiful draft horses.We don't get a chance to see these horses in action anymore,but they are the steeds that built America.It's nice to go back in time for a bit. More

I went on this carriage ride with my 7 year old daughter in April 2017. It was a little chilly and they had a blanket for us in the carriage. The guides were fantastic - they gear the information to make it easily understandable for my daughter. They answered any of the questions that I had. It was my daughter's... More

These carriage rides are not only romantic and relaxing, the guide gives you a lot of information on the local history of the town, it's people, and it's architecture.

The ride itself was informative, fun, and cozy. My children enjoyed it. That being said once we arrived to check in the gentleman working the booth was beyond RUDE and very unwelcoming. It's a festive time of year in Cape May and with him greeting people that definitely changes your spirit for a second. Scrooge would be proud!

Have done this a few times with my granddaughters. They have a Cinderella carriage that changes colors--book it after 6 or 7 when it's dark. A fun and memorable experience.

What a wonderful tour of the town and the tour guide was very informative! Besides the tour, there are lots of things to do, i.e., the wonderful beaches, the fabulous dining, and shopping!
