Handicap Information

Carriages are a great way for handicapped or disabled people to experience the French Quarter. If they can walk up steps with assistance, they will be able to board our carriages with ease. We do provide stepping stools and assistance. For people with no mobility, no ability to stand, these people may not be able to access the seat of the carriage. Our private carriages are more open air, so there is more ability for these individuals to be placed into those carriages, or larger people. Wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers can be left behind at our Jackson Square boarding location, and our on-site supervising manager will look after them. We suggest that all important items be taken on the ride.

Cancellation policy

Customers may cancel at least 24 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 24 hour period will not be eligible for a refund. The carriages are covered and therefore operate rain or shine, but if weather is severe, the tour may be rescheduled for a later time/date or a full refund will be issued. No-shows will not be refunded. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 24 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    Great time

    I thought it was great but a family came on at the last minute and sat in the front which cause our carriage to be over crowded and obstructed our view. They should have been asked to wait so ce they had no reservation.

    Great Tour

    Our guide was great and we wish we would have done this sooner than our last night so we could tour some of the homes in the daylight!

    It was relaxing and informative. We were looking for more of the haunted history which wasn't really covered on this adventure

    More history than haunts

    It was good, but not a lot about scary stuff. Didn't last the whole hour, more like 45 min, with 5 to 10 of it sitting infront of the Cathedral. Still interesting, though and the tour guide was nice.

    Great time!

    Hannah was a fun guide, full of information. We took our 12 & 17 yr old on a leisurely stroll around the quarter. It's worth the time and money just to give your feet a break and learn tid bits of history you may not pick up elsewhere. Definitely nice alternative to walking in the summer heat & humidity.

    Overall, tour was wonderful; a bit more of a history tour than a "ghost tour", but still loved that, too!
