Owner description: Discover Solvang with the timeless elegance and fun that a horse-drawn conveyance offers! You can take a 25-min guided tour on the historical Solvang Trolley, which has been taking visitors and locals alike for rides since 1964. The Trolley is a replica of a 1900's Danish Street Car, pulled by Belgian Draft Horses. The tour is guided by multi-lingual, costumed Tour Guides that are consantly educated on local special events and history of the town.We also offer private carriage rides! Our carriages are available for wine-tasting or private tours. A 24 hour-notice is required on most days, but keep in mind that summer and holiday months book quickly, and many groups book their tours with months in advance. Our wine-tasting tours include a visit to two wine-tasting rooms within Solvang, and we offer complimentary drinks or dessert from our Ice Cream Parlor!Our Carriages are available for special events at your location. Please call for details!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and the driver was very experienced, the horses are beautiful. We enjoyed it and it was worth the money. We learned a lot about Solvang. I recommend it.

Tour guides were very knowledgeable of area and pointed out many interesting places around the town. Felt the $10 I paid for the tour was well spent.

$10 an adult $6 per child ..... The host was a teen girl not equipt to educate and entertain 4-35 years old. We learned a little bit about the town and horses but there was a lot of dead time. The closing line went something like Solvang has 3 points to remember, shop til you drop, eat til you pop, and dont forget to tip... With 2 thumbs up and pointing to herself and the driver. I wasn't impressed. Unless you just want a ride on the trolley, which was fun, I'd skip the trolley and take a picture. Then head down to their sister business that makes Ice Cream with local ingredients and put you time & money there. That was worth it.

The tour was not worth $10 each adult. It was about half hour and the guide was a very giddy teenager who was less than adequate. A local sat next to us and offered tips to her she was not giving but she ignored him. The horses are great and fun to watch them turn around in the street but that's about all I can recommend. You get a dollar off at their ice cream store after the tour if you show your tickets.

If you have not visited Solvang then you are missing out on an outstanding bit of California history. So, while you are there do not miss the horse drawn carriage adventure. Our trip lasted 25 mins and covered the main part of Old Solvang. Not only will you learn about elf houses and storks on roofs but the history of Solvang as well. You will also fine great food and lots to see. Get on over to Solvang and do not miss the Solvang Carriage ride.
