Svenja 10 months ago I had an absolutely fantastic experience! It's super easy to find the meetup point as a romantic carriage with two beautiful horses in the middle of the city is hard to miss. The driver Alex was super lovely and made sure we were comfortable, moved the roof up and down for us depending if we wanted to be in the shade. The experienced driver and well-trained horses made us feel very safe while they were moving through the busy roads on the city. We made a short stop at the Shrine of Remembrance to take a fairytale photo. The carriage is super comfortable and you can enjoy all the views during your ride. We stopped again for the horses to get a drink before heading back to the starting point. We got to pet the horses and take pictures. Overall a fairytale come true, such a magical and romantic experience!

The experience was incredible
Alexander Holmes 1 year ago

The experience was incredible, we loved every minute of the horse and carriage ride. Our driver was very friendly and went out of his way to make our experience as enjoyable as possible. The horses and the carriage were gorgeous and we couldn’t be happier with the whole thing. Overall an incredible experience we won’t soon forget.

Took our 12yo granddaughter for a 30min carriage ride
Noela Read 1 year ago

Took our 12yo granddaughter for a 30min carriage ride. Very relaxing way to travel down St Kilda Road and up through the parkland. Comfortable, rugs provided. Feeding the horses a few carrots at the completion of the ride was an added bonus - BYO carrots. Our coachman was very friendly and traditionally dressed. An enjoyable experience for all ages.

This is amazing experience for us
Fionn 1 year ago

This is amazing experience for us. Service is very good. For Chinese it's especially a good experience, because it's different from what is in China. If the horse riding started in the morning may be good. If I need book other attraction, I will booking in this website. Thank you.

Was my girlfriends first trip to Melbourne and our anniversary so I wanted something special
Taryn 1 year ago

Was my girlfriends first trip to Melbourne and our anniversary so I wanted something special. It was one of the most romantic thins to do in Melbourne. Our horse lady was lovely. I even emailed earlier that day to see if they could put a single red rose in our carriage. They did. It started to rain as Melbourne does this just made the trip so much more beautiful, the sound of the rain with the horses is a night we will never forget. Was amazing

Carol our driver was excellent greeting us warmly on our arrival
Colin Kelly 1 year ago

Carol our driver was excellent greeting us warmly on our arrival. After explaining where we were going we were off, it was not at a fast pace, but we quickly noticed that all the bystanders were taking photos of us and waving, we felt like royalty. We went past the Shrine of Remembrance and turned to head back to the city. All too soon our experience was over and we headed home. Another one ticked off our growing bucket list. We would definitely recommend this to anyone else contemplating this experience.

We booked 2 carriages for half an hour ride as we were not sure if it could carry 6 of us (5 adults and a toddler)
Sherry 2 years ago

We booked 2 carriages for half an hour ride as we were not sure if it could carry 6 of us (5 adults and a toddler). Upon reaching the staffs were friendly and they were flexible and allowed us to change to a carriage and to 1 hour ride. Really appreciative of the good service!

What a wonderful experience
Kara 2 years ago

What a wonderful experience! Beautiful day! It was nice to go at a slow pace amongst the hustle and bustle and appreciate our gorgeous city! Loved every minute of it and would recommend!

The 30 minute tour was part of a 13th birthday celebration
Harley Wells 2 years ago

The 30 minute tour was part of a 13th birthday celebration. She loved the experience, and so did we. The golden light just before sunset made the city glow after a warm day. As traffic and trams rushed by, the easy clip-clop of the horses took us back in time to a more leisurely age, over the Yarra, past the Shrine of Remembrance, and through immaculate parklands. Very enjoyable!
