It was a stunning ride thru Minneapolis. Arthur made for great conversation, and Marty was a great horse. I purposed to my girlfriend on this trip, and I'm sure we will make this an annual trip. Thank you for a memorable experience.

We have 3 adults and 2 children. Would we be able to all go on a carriage if our 6 year old sat on someone's lap? If not, we won't be able to go :(

I would recommend two, but you could have 4.
Wanted to see if you offer rides in the winter?
