I arranged this carriage ride for our 20th anniversary. We had been on a carriage ride immediately following our wedding 20 years ago The tour through Minneapolis was just beautiful Our driver was a delight to talk to and shared many interesting facts about the areas we passed. We got many stares from passerby’s interested in our adventure. I would definitely definitely recommend to others!!! Enjoy!
Cannot say enough about how fantastic the Hitching Company was. Arranged for them to pick me and fiance up on Stone Arch Bridge after the proposal. Driver arrived exactly on time, just after she said yes. Made a memorable night even more memorable. Would highly recommend!!!!
This was a great tour……the tour guide, “MO”, was very knowledgeable and friendly. “Frank”, the horse, did a great job, also. Would recommend this and the trolley tour to any first-time visitors for an interesting overview of the history of Minneapolis.
I ask my now fiancée to marry me on the stone bridge she loves the ride. The hitching company was very good at the following instruction even suggested a few ideas to make the day more special.
We hired this company for our daughter’s wedding and it was one of the highlights of her gorgeous wedding at the Historic Concord Exchange in St. Paul! The carriage picked up the bride and her father at the back door of the venue and after a short ride delivered them to the main entrance. They were waiting there after the ceremony to pick up our daughter and her new husband for another ride. The driver, Barb, and the horse were all fun and friendly and we got so many amazing pictures! Our day was really memorable and I would highly recommend this carriage company. They were very accommodating and easy to deal with.
My wife really wanted to do this, and I’m glad we did. I pre-purchased the 1 hr carriage ride. The horse’s name was Marty, and our coachman was great. Such and peaceful and relaxing ride. The history and information he gave during the ride were really interesting, and a lot of history. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone.
We booked the 1 hour ride for 2 couples and couldn’t have been more delighted by our experience! After a beautiful meal at the Nicollet Island Inn, we boarded the carriage and bundled up in the warm blankets. The first moments with the steady clip-clop of Marty’s hooves were magical and set the tone for the rest of the hour. We laughed and sang and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It started to snow just before we got on board and continued throughout the hour, making it absolutely perfect! We will be back again next year!
We had a wonderful time! The horse, Marty, was very friendly and affectionate. He let us pet him and he nuzzled our shoulders. The coachman was very congenial and had a lot of really interesting information to share. The ride was really picturesque. It was really the highlight of my trip. I wish that I had thought to bring an apple or carrots for the horse.
I bought this for my parents when they came to visit in Minneapolis. They had an amazing time and highly recommend it. Great way to see beautiful downtown and they enjoyed the company of the tour guide.
A beautiful ride on a perfect summer night! Emily and horse were right on time, prim and proper. Our kids, ages 8,8, and 3 enjoyed it. Our 3 yr old got restless, but that’s her nature because she never sits still…ever! Anyway, I’d recommend for any age.
