Joe arrived 5 minutes early and gave a very interesting and relaxing tour. We asked for the historical tour and he exceeded our expectations. We brought our drinks along and he dropped us off at our restaurant in time for our reservations. I definitely recommend this company (and Joe!) for a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Our love lady providing 1HP transportation was Ms. Frieda and her caretaker was Mr. Roy. Both were full of personality and showed great southern hospitality on our adventure through St. Augustine. We learned many historical facts, and had a stop at Frieda's Grandma's house, the Georgia Nick Gallery, where Frieda proceeded to eat all of the tasty treats. A very... More

We went for a ride just after dark. It was a beautiful night and during the tour we fell in love with St. Augustine. Our guide was fantastic and we felt that Bob was a well cared for horse. I didn't feel guilty about him working like I thought I might. He seemed happy and sweet.

We were picked up outside of our Bed and Breakfast after ordering a special package for our anniversary. We were given a warm greeting by Tiffany and her horse, Holly. Tiffany asked if we had any dinner reservations and advised she would drop us off there. We were given the full 45 minute tour of St. Augustine. Tiffany provided a... More

I loved taking a carriage ride. This was the first time I have done so. The carriages are so pretty at night when they have the lights on. The driver was very knowledgeable and pleasant, she had a great sense of humor. Overall very enjoyable.

It was a trip. Fun all the way the weather was perfect, the guide was fun and interesting. The cost more than it should be but it is still worth it once wife loved it, thought it was romantic with the moon. Do it once would not do it twice.

This was a relaxing, fun way to view this beautiful city. Our tour guide was very interesting and our horse, Toby was very gentle, and knew all of the commands given to him. Highly recommended.
