Hi is it best to take the 2o minute horse and carriage ride or the 45minute?

Definitely 45 if you want to get the most from the trip as they give you some good history as you ride around. Believe me 45 mins goes really quickly.

Do you happen to have a contact number or email for Ariel? I am hoping to arrange for a carriage ride as well and haven't had any luck when using the website. Thanks for any help you can offer!
