In town with my daughter on a business trip. It was a spur of the moment ride, as Cindy was set up outside the Marriot City Center offering rides on a beautiful day! Cindy and Iggy were our tour guides. Iggy is a very well behaved, adorable little dog, Cindy was fun and informative, and our horse Billy was beautiful. We enjoyed a stroll around the area (at least 20 mins.) for 25.00. The best 25.00 we spent in Charlotte! Thanks Cindy! and Iggy!

Our family of five enjoyed a carriage ride during the week of Christmas. The ride was fun (we did the 20 minute ride) and there were blankets provided for our comfort. It was a chilly night so we were glad that we did the shorter ride. The horse was well behaved and the driver was friendly. The view of the city lights was spectacular! We would recommend and would do again.

Prior to my anniversary dinner, my wife and I went on this horse and carriage ride and enjoyed ourselves for about a 45 minute trot. The horse was well behaved and the driver, Cindy was informative about the area without being intrusive.

There were blankets supplied for the cold, but they were not needed as it was crisp without being too cold. I was able to enjoy a cigar as we toured through the fourth ward of the city. The architecture of some of the houses and the stories of the area made it very enjoyable prior to our dinner.

Right in front of where we got on our horse & carriage tour were some trees decorated with holiday lights.

If this is something you have not done before, I would suggest that you do. It helps add that "special" touch to whatever you're doing with someone that you love.

My husband and I went for a carriage ride after our anniversary dinner.

Cindy, our driver, was pleasant and informative without being the least bit intrusive.

She was thoughtful enough to bring along an Amish lap quilt for us to use. We would have been quite frozen otherwise.

Our hour long tour through the streets of the Elizabeth neighborhood of Charlotte is definitely one we will never forget.

Sure, we could have driven those same streets but the architecture of the homes in that area is just breathtaking.

And to experience that beauty at a pace that was dictated by a horse and carriage made it even more magical.

We were "forced" to concentrate on each other. What better gift could a couple give each other for their anniversary or even just a date night...a hour of unadulterated attention.

Thank you, Cindy. And that you too, Elvis the left-turning horse. You both made our anniversary perfect in every way.
