We knew there were no private motor vehicles on the island - but we didn't know there were 100's of horses. It was like stepping back in time and we thoroughly enjoyed our tours. A leisurely way to see the sights and hear interesting stories.

My friends and I went on tours a few times, it was always a fun & interesting way to travel through the island. We were able to view some beautiful parts of the island we couldn't have done without the "horses".

One of my favorite things about Mackinac Island is the absence of motor vehicles. The Mackinac Island Carriage Tours company proved to be wonderful organized, and all of our drivers were efficient and truly added to the experience. I did learn that one has a much smoother time if you call the company directly when you want to request a... More

We wanted to see the new Fort Holmes on the Island. We decided to rent a private carriage with driver. It was a little over an hour and a half trip. Our driver was very informative and entertaining with history and stories of the fort and the area. Well worth the investment. Will certainly do this again.

Really enjoyed the horse carriage ride to have our first experience to see the island. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered everyones questions. Really liked the stop at Arch Rock to take photos and if you have time there is another stairway to go up to see the Nicolet Watch Tower to honor John Nicolet and see the... More

I'll start by saying they have good customer service by email. About a month prior to our trip, I emailed them with questions I had about the taxi service and the carriage tour. They were prompt with their response and gave me the information I requested. We bought a combo ticket from Star Line Ferry online that included the round... More

its an easy way to get around the interior of the island. they show some of the highlights of the sights and give some history. it was a nice lazy way to look at the colors in the trees. in the summer you can get off and spend time at the sights and get back on the next carriage

The carriage drivers were very knowledgeable and friendly. We went on a Mackinac Island Carriage Tour on Saturday, September 24, 2016. There were 6 of us. We were able to all sit close proximity to each other and it was a lovely cool September day. The first leg of the tour, our driver was personable and we enjoyed her talk... More

My husband and I went on the 1.5 hour tour this past Saturday. Rick was our driver. He was very knowledgeable and so funny! The colors were beautiful and the weather was perfect. Would definitely do it again!

The carriage tour of Mackinac Island was the highlight of the Island visit! The carriage driver was a very entertaining young woman with and excellent knowledge of the Island and its attractions. Her pleasant attitude and outgoing personality made the hour and a half ride a great experience and memory.
