Daniel, our driver, was exceptional. His knowledge of the city’s history was amazing. There were 10 people pin our group and we were able to have a private carriage. I would recommend this tour to all.

We loved the tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and funny. We were shown areas that we would not have seen if we walked around on our own. A great way to see many historic properties.

After having taken a walking tour (which was incredibly informative...but limited in geographical range...), it was great to take a carriage tour: equally informative, but with added geographical range. Al was terrific...and my wife assured me that the horses were well cared for and happy:)...More
