Private Rides for All Occasions!
Each of our Private Carriage Rides are 45 minutes long. We will usually cover up to 3 miles of Fredericksburg Commercial District the Colonial, Queen Victorian and Edwardian residential Historic District. Fredericksburg is known for its unique history and its residents take great pride in their homes. During the ride you will have the pleasure of seeing the most magnificent homes in the City.
Our Private Carriage Ride offers an exclusive carriage for those who want to tour only with members of their own party. The Private Carriage Ride is all about the culture of the City and making your own experience for the day or evening.
Enjoy this perfect activity to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary, engagement, girl's night out, bridal/baby shower, mother daughter activity or a birthday celebration.
Your coachman will be one of the cities best tour guides! Whether you want colonial and civil war history, folklore or ghost stories, or just information about the shops and restaurants your coachman should be able to convey some of the most interesting facts of the area. Also, your coachmen can fill you in on what current and upcoming events are coming, Just let your coachman know what information you want to learn during your ride, or maybe you just want to enjoy the view???

This company is truly outstanding and a dream to work with. Eric, our carriage driver, was fantastic down to the smallest detail as he worked with me on planning the perfect surprise proposal! He always took my calls and bent over backwards to accommodate our smallest requests. He even played an integral part in helping us pull off the surprise down to the knee drop! Do not hesitate to work with this small but truly professional and friendly company. You won’t be disappointed! I just can’t say enough about how wonderful they are to work with

I purchased tickets for the Holiday ride last night to surprise my SO. I contacted Olde Towne Carriages several times about a request to have a place to propose, and to make sure the weather wasn't too cold for the ride. They were very quick to respond, and very helpful every time I talked to them.
We were dropped off at Hurkamp Park so I could propose to her, and our driver was great with letting us take a few minutes, and then take photos in the carriage. Everyone I interactedcted with was professional and very well versed in historical and Christmas information about the town. I would absolutely recommend Olde Towne Carriage to everyone.

Had a wonderful time. Our guide Stephanie was very pleasant and helped us learn a bit about Fredericksburg that we never knew.
Our beautiful white horse, Tony, and the very comfortable and beautiful white carriage he pulled helped me secure a 'Yes' when I asked my girlfriend to be my wife later that evening.
