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.

    Great French Quarter Tour

    My daughter and her family were visiting during Easter break, and my granddaughter (10) wanted to tour the French Quarter to see where episodes of “The Originals” were filmed, also visit the St. Louis Cemetary. Our tour guide, Blanche, gave us a great, informative, fun-filled tour. Would definitely recommend!!!

    First time in NOLA

    This was our first time being at bourbon street, we really enjoyed the ride and going to the cemetery. But, we didn’t like to spend to much at the cemetery and more in the city area and see more of the old area in NO.
