I visited Mackinac in early June with a group of friends. The staff on the carriage tour was very friendly and informative as they took us around the island. Lots of beautiful sites to see on the tour.

Wonderful tour, full of great facts and humor. The horses were beautiful and well taken care of!! Only very minor complaint would be that the audio system was rather quiet during the tour. Otherwise highly recommended and worth the cost!!

I think so
When the carriage tour drops you at Arch rock for the brief time (5-10 minutes), is it at the top where you don't need to climb the 240 stairs? Or does the carriage stop at the same place hikers and bikers begin the ascent?
