Beautiful and romantic ride!

Took a horse and carriage ride to see the lights of St Augustine and the historical sites, narrated by the driver. The entire encounter, from the moment I talked with the person taking the money to the end of the tour, was unprofessional and third rate so to speak. I called in advance to make a reservation and was told... More

The carriage ride was a great way to see downtown St. Augustine. Our carriage driver was very knowledgable of the history of St. Augustine. This carriage ride was far much better than the carriage rides in Charleston, SC. We were able to see more and didn't get stuck by the luck of the draw as what could happen to you... More

Took advantage of buying a ride as an add on to our stay at a local B+B. While the ride itself was nice, the driver was not very good with the history of the area and spent more time with quick one liners with passers-by than talking about the area.

Absolutely without a doubt just a delight. Murphy was my driver and just taught our family so much about St. Augustine I never knew. Gary the horse was just full of gumption. We were so tired from walking on St. George's Street and just had a hour of pleasant entertainment and relaxation. Highly Recommend Avalon Carriage Service!!!

Another wonderful way to travel St. Augustine! We did this in the evening and it was wonderful to sit back in the comfortable carriage with the kids and tour St. Augustine.

After a busy day I had no intention of hoofing it down dark cobblestone streets for a ghost tour so my daughter and I took the 45 minute carriage ride. Our host/driver was quite knowledgeable and friendly telling us lots of not too scarry yet historical stories of St Augustine. He also seemed to be loaded with tons of little... More
