Romantic Horse and Carriage Ride through Paris
Reviewed by: Stephen F, December 2013
We booked this a few days before we went Paris as was really looking forward to it. We only had a day trip so wanted to do something a bit "special" and we were not disappointed! Obviously we had read the reviews and seen a few pictures but you never really know what to expect. But from the moment the horse and carriage pulled up, we knew we were going to have a lovely time. Both the horse and carriage were emaculately turned out and when they pulled up at the Eiffel Tower, it turned loads of heads and had people snapping away on their cameras all the way along the route. The driver was very friendly and polite and gave a explanations of some of the sights along the way. This ride was definately worth the money we paid and is a lovely, romatic touch and something very different. Something to impress the lady in your life and would be a great way to pop the question! :)

Our horse and carriage ride was wonderful!! The trotting sound of our beautiful belgian/clydesdale horse on the cobblestone streets took us back in time. Phillip was a spectacular guide and stopped to take our picture many times in front of many beautiful places in the city. We had blankets and champagne as needed. There were four of us. Mom, Dad and two teenage kids. We all loved it. A great way to top of a vacation to Paris.

Absolutely a great kick off to our week vacation. I was in France on business for a week, and my wife met me at the end of the business week so we could stay in Paris for another week without kids! On our first evening in Paris, we went to see the tower. While we were there, this horse and carriage "just happened up". My wife was surpised and we had a great tour (even though it was cold and misting, the blankets and champagne were great, and seeing Paris with the lights reflecting from the wet streets was pretty special). I would defitely recommend this to other couples beginning their Paris stay.

The only man in Paris with a horse, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed it. Its a must do activity when in Paris.

Made our first trip to Paris simply perfect. A fantastic tour guide who interacted with us just the right amount. Blankets were provided and champagne offered to us. A real celebrity feel experience as everyone in the city, local and tourist, stopped to look and take pictures. The cost is reasonable given the memories we now have. The guide also took some brilliant pictures for us in front of the Eiffel tower for us to share with family and friends. Recommend this to anybody visiting Paris - the whole experience from booking through Viator, to finding the meeting point, to handing over the printed voucher was extremely easy, creating an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Personally, we would recommend this to be booked right at the beginning of the trip, as we found that the tour gave us a good overview of the city and gave us ideas and some sense of surrounding so that we could then venture off afterwards to things we wanted to see in more detail.

Brilliant, great value for money and a very enjoyable tour. The driver took a few photos and provided us with some history and information along the way. Very enjoyable.
