  • Take your seat and be led around the French Quarter on a fun mule-drawn carriage ride
  • Learn the history of the French Quarter and its unique architecture with a live guide
  • See the street performers in front of St. Louis Cathedral, and explore a haunted cemetery

Trot through 300 years of New Orleans' history on this fun, lively mule-drawn carriage ride. Your guide will regale you with historical tales while you explore the fascinating French Quarter and all of its special architecture, plus a graveyard featuring the tomb of the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans.

When you've eaten your body weight in beignets, wrestled an alligator in a swamp and ridden on a steamboat, it's time for another authentic activity in New Orleans!

Take a scenic and super fun carriage tour through old New Orleans, and see how people used to travel around the city, way before Uber.

Your enthusiastic guide will give you nuggets of history along the way, and you'll also learn about the unique architecture of the French Quarter. This lively area is the city's historic heart, famous for its crazy nightlife, cast-iron balconies and Bourbon Street's jazz clubs.

Away from the bustling Cajun eateries and rowdy bars, soak up the charm of quieter streets and local markets. Cruise through the famous Jackson Square, home to many hopeful entertainers looking for their Big Easy break.

Then step inside Saint Louis Cemetery No. 1, and see the final resting place of the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, as well as other late famous local figures.

I very much enjoyed the french quarter by mule drawn carriage. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area and infused humor to keep it from being dry/stuffy. I would recommend to others.
