  • Thank you very much for the carriage ride! It was awesome!  My wife and I always wanted to ride a horse downtown. We took a horse ride downtown from the Majestic theater after watching the musical Wicked! Our driver took us straight to the Omni hotel. It was awesome! The wife loved it :-)

  • I just wanted to let ya'll know that Melissa said YES! I'm sure the cinderella carriage covered in red roses and her favorite chocolate waiting for her didn't hurt. Thank you very much for everything you guys did to make it a perfect night for me and my soon to be wife.

  • We scheduled an executive retreat and wanted to have horse drawn carriages to traffic our guests from their residences to the dining hall. The carriage ride was the hit of our event. The professionalism of the drivers and the calmness of the horses even got integrated into one of our management presentations. We will definitely book a carriage again next year.
