We were part of a bus tour coming from Mackinaw and the tour easily accommodated our entire group of 40 in two carriages. The tour was very informative and we had two excellent drivers, one for each of to legs of the tour. Both were extremely knowledgeable and pleasantly surprised by the humor in their descriptive talk. The humor kept the groups attention and added a favorable twist to the tour.

We did the carriage tour so we could learn more about the island and check out what we might want to do or where we might want to go while we were there. I totally recommend this tour. The driver was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of history about the island.

We had terrific drivers who were funny, informative and entertaining. They all seemed knowledgeable about the island and their horses. The trip lasts just about the right length of time. Wish I could give it more stars. Best activity on the island!

It was nice to be able to sit back and see the island. It is done in two parts. The first is a tour through town and the second one is through the forest. It stops at all the tourist places and saves you from walking up the hills. The guides are also entertaining.

Really a fun way to explore the entire island. With crowds of 100s of tourists walking, biking, riding their individual horses, and consuming more fudge in a day than you will see eaten in any given year, it’s a welcome relief to be escorted by some great horse drawn people carriers. These are fine animals. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. You really get to see the island.

Be sure and secure a time for your carriage ride after your shuttle boat lands. Their location is about two blocks after exiting to the right from boat ferry. It’s first come, first serve.

You have the option to get off at any stop and walk or rejoin a later carriage subject to space available.
