Private Horse & Carriage Rides in the Center of Paris

It was only recently that, for the first time in over forty years, horse-drawn carriages again appeared on the streets of Paris. Now you have the chance to experience what it was like when Paris was a horse-powered city. A carriage ride is quite a unique — and romantic — affair. We've lined up what we think are the best options.

While a 4-person carriage tour makes for a wonderful family activity, we tend to think of it as more fairy-tale like, layered with romance. We suppose we think that way because of the options for rides featuring champagne, flowers, and even an opportunity for a marriage proposal. Let's look at some Paris horse and carriage activities.


Horse & Carriage Ride for 2 to 4 People

Horse & Carriage Rid

This one-hour ride past the iconic monuments of Paris is perfect for romance, but it's also a good choice for a family, two couples, or a group of friends.

The ride begins at the Eiffel Tower (where there are plenty of opportunities for some memorable travel photos) and takes you at a slow trot past the Arc de Triomphe, along the Champs Elysées, around past the Grand Palais and Petit Palais and across the bridge to the Trocadero. If you choose the hour-and-a-half ride a bottle of champagne is included!



Absolutely amazing!! The best way to see the sights and with a glass of champagne! The guide was also fabulous. Highly recommend this."

Romantic Horse & Carriage Rides in Paris

Romantic Horse & Carriage Rides in Paris

If you want to spend time in Paris with someone special, there's nothing quite as romantic as one of the horse and carriage activities arranged by our Paris Concierge.

Have him arrange a one-hour evening tour, taking off at 7 PM. Or opt for the Royal Horse & Carriage that leaves at 6 PM an includes a bottle of champagne to sip during your one-and-a-half hour romantic tour.

Our top recommendation, thought is two full hours on the Imperial Horse & Carriage Route that provides both a bottle of champagne and an unequalled view of the city. All carriage rides are available from Wednesdays to Sundays.
