“First Horse Drawn Carriage ride”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

My granddaughter and I took our very first horse drawn carriage ride in San Antonio and we loved it. It was dark so didn't get to see a lot of stuff but it was magical and we enjoyed it very much.

“What company do you use-whatever carriage comes along....more or less”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

We walked up and down the road (near the mall) looking at the horse and carriage rides that are available. We talked to a couple of drivers. How do you pick? We didn't care what our carriage looked like or what decorations they had on it. Some were pretty darn gaudy, at that. One driver was very rude; one was extremely nice. We thought we'd go with him, after seeing the movie at the IMAX. However, we waited and waited across the street for about 45 minutes, hoping he would return from a tour. Most people choose the 20 or 40 minute tour, so we thought he'd be along. Finally, we chose another driver and it was a great decision. However, we saw our driver about one block after taking off...! Oh well....

We chose, at first, the 40 minute tour. There was just the two of us. The driver was very friendly, informative, humorous at times, quiet at times, very nice all the time. We enjoyed him very much. Our horses were good! After about 20 minutes in, we decided to do the 60 minute tour (King William Tour) and we actually got about a 75 minute ride....! Can't beat that. $80, plus tip. It was worth it in our opinions. Lovely night to experience it. The historical neighborhood provides a great architectural tour; the other buildings you see consists of historical areas, churches, modern day hotels and buildings, restaurants.

We went over our allotted time because it was his last tour of the night. I highly recommend this company. I am surprised there are no reviews written for it.
