My wife and I took a private carriage ride on a beautiful 70 F day in early December. Don was our drive and he made it an enjoyable, entertaining, and educational hour long trip through the historic district. Been coming to Wilmington for 40 years, but still learn a lot of interesting trivia. They picked us up at our B&B... More

My wife and I wanted to get an informed lay of the land before we decided where we were going to walk. This was a great choice. Our guide was very informative and had plenty of fun history/gossip to share. Our horse, Rex, set a very relaxed pace forcing us to slow down, mentally. I think the tour took about... More

My family and I took this tour during a day trip to historic Wilmington. After having taken the same type tour in Savannah and Charleston, we were expecting to hear much more about Wilmington's history than what we did. The driver was very personable, but told multiple jokes which got old after hearing the first 3. The fact the company... More

We were the only two on the trolley. Had a kind gentleman that took us around, it is a slow 30 mins tour in the back streets that points out dates of historic houses. It was ok, if you had young children they would enjoy being pulled by horses. 12 dollars per person

My husband, son and I sat on this trolley the evening of June 10, 2016 to take the tour as I had enjoyed it when in town a couple of years ago. There were 5 or 6 people already seated. While waiting for it to fill up, the driver said, "Well, the first thing we're going to do is say... More

The best thing about this trip was John, our tour guide. He was funny and very personable. The tour itself was apparently one of a few (maybe 6) different routes they take. It took about 30 minutes for him to take us down the street and circle back. Not really the history I expected. He pointed out signs for is... More

A great way to spend an hour on a warm morning. Our driver / guide was really entertaining! They take very good care of the horses as well.

Really learned a lot about downtown Wilmington. It is great to know that the horses they use are retired and/or rescue horses. Fees for the tour also help support the horses. The tour guides are knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. There are several routes for the tour. Highly recommend!
