Owner description: This is a Horse Drawn Carriage ride through a scenic canyon. Drivers entertain guest with history facts and the lore of the canyon while charming you with their personality and wit. These tours are not scripted and are much more personal and interactive than other similar tours in the ares. The Beauty of the Draft Horses that pull the carriages is only topped by the Majesty of the Canyon itself! This is one of the original attractions that made Wisconsin Dells a major attraction and is still a must see today!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I remembered loving this tour as a child and suggested doing it again on our latest trim to the Dells. There were 5 in our group myself, my sister, our mom, and my niece and nephew and the tour did not disappoint. Basically you are taken in on a wagon ride your a narrow canyon that was carved out of the sandstone thousands of years ago. Along the way the guide tells about the history of the area and of the canyon and also tell several corny but funny jokes.

The horses are very well trained and it was fun to see them re-act to the verbal commands the driver gives them. If you want you can even pet the horses or take pictures of them once they are back in the holding area.

Overall it is a very nice relaxing way to spend an hour.

“Beautiful & literally cool!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Had an excellent tour in a horse drawn wagon into Lost Canyon. As you enter it cools considerably. Plus the tour is cool too. Our driver, Barnabee, was very funny, e.g. a series of knock-knock jokes, and informative. The canyon is very narrow necessitating that the riders (and the horses) bow their heads at a couple of points.
Although the tour only lasts about 30 minutes it is very well worth the price; about $11.50 per person.
There was only one distraction and that was at one end of the canyon: noise from Wilderness water park but Barnabee had the manager's phone# on his cell phone. Barnabee called and withing a few minutes the volume decreased to an acceptable level.

“Tour”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We loved the tour. Beautiful scenery. The information was mixed with just the right amount of "cheesy" jokes. Our 5 year old said "I want to go back. Josh (our guide) is awesome!"
