My husband is a true horseman from Germany and I wasn't sure how open he would be to the idea of a carriage ride. In Florida, where I live, the horses are treated horribly, the heat is so intense and it is heartbreaking. So to to say that two animal lovers, my husband the horse lover, and me who adores all things canine, were impressed says a lot. The horse, Gulliver was in outstanding physical condition, works only two days a week, and has genuine bond of affection with Cindy. Iggy, her dog was just adorable, and even added his own song to entertain us. We were delighted to see the backstreets of the Queen City with Cindy's knowledgeable about the well-known history and the details that really make it both a learning experience, as well as an entertaining one. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Charlotte.We were glad to choose a private tour, both for the romance and also to give my husband the chance to understand the English being spoken. He's becoming more fluent each day, but this was a great solution for us. If the weather is cold, dress warmly (hat, gloves, warm boots), and bring a blanket for your lap.

The carriage arrived on time. Gwen, our driver and Sweet Caroline, our horse were both full of character and handled the whole ride professionally. We drove at a lovely slow pace around uptown and then around the 4th Ward. Gwen was most informative and had a great sense of humour. It was a wonderful treat for the 4 of us and I would recommend it to anyone.

Gwen is great! Hubby and I took a long relaxing carriage ride through the city. Gwen is so knowledgeable about the city and the history. We are looking forward to the winter season so we can go back and do it again.

We were very pleased with the experience. Gwen was our driver and was extremely well informed of the various sites. It made for a very interesting carriage ride.

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!
