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, 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. 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.
