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 72 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 72 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. There are no refunds or reschedules for missed tour appointments: a missed appointment is 5 minutes past the scheduled tour time. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 72 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    French Quarter Evening Ride

    Royal Carriages have it down! Our driver Rich was a wealth of information and engaging while taking us through the Quarter. My wife had asked to go for trip as it was her first time in New Orleans and she wanted to get a feel of the history. Rich succeeded in making her want to return again and see more in the future. Thanks again to Royal Carriages.

    Christmas Eve carriage ride

    It was a fairly last minute surprise on my part to go for a carriage ride in the quarter and look at Christmas lights; we live in New Orleans (and I live in the FQ) so we didn’t need history or stories, and it was PERFECT. We brought our cocktails and enjoyed a quick trip through the quarter, and were able to take in what we usually miss. Thank you!!
