Royal Carriages, New Orleans

4.5
Royal Carriages was started in 1941 by my parents, Clem and Violet Lauga, with one horse and carriage. Over the years, our company has grown steadily into a full-service carriage company employing 50 people and stabling a like number of young draft mules.

Through all these years of ownership, the company has remained in our family -- one that has a legacy of over 70 years experience in the New Orleans sightseeing industry. The fact that Royal Carriages is a family-run business is one reason why we are the oldest continually-operating sightseeing carriage company in America.

All our mules receive at least 3 months of vacation per year on our lovely 30-acre farm in the Mississippi countryside. We usually stable about 34 mules here in the city and the balance are kept on pasture.

If we treat our animals this good, you can imagine how well we'll treat you! Royal Carriages prides itself on providing our guests with that personal touch. We invite you to visit us on your next visit to New Orleans, and hope your stay in New Orleans is a pleasant one!

  • We took the hour tour and WOW! Ron our driver was absolutely amazing with little insights of the area. His knowledge of the French Quarter and Cemetery No.1 was great and his stories of his childhood in the Quarter made for a very memorable tour. So take the time and soak in the sights and history using mule power! And thanks to Moon our mule for a steady trip
  • We really enjoyed our ride through the French Quarter to St. Louis No. 1 Cemetery. Our guide was absolutely wonderful; well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable. Her tour of the cemetery was amazing!
