Keeping a Slice of the 19th Century Alive! World's Largest Horse and Buggy Livery.

Information
Keeping a Slice of the 19th Century Alive! World's Largest Horse and Buggy Livery. Come experience our 1 hour and forty-five minute narrated, historic, and scenic horse-drawn carriage tour through Mackinac Island, MI. Carriage men officially began providing tours of the Island in 1869. In 1948, the carriage men established Mackinac Island Carriage Tours, Inc. The founders of Mackinac Island Carriage Tours have had a very prominent role in making Mackinac Island Michigan's most popular tourist attraction. It was the carriage men, led by their president, Thomas Chambers, that petitioned the Village of Mackinac Island to ban the automobile as the "horseless carriage" startled the horses. Descendants of the founding carriage men still actively manage the company that was formed over 100 years ago. Today, Mackinac Island Carriage Tours, Inc. is the world's largest, oldest and continually operated horse and buggy livery, with approximately 100 freight and passenger carriages put in motion by over 400 horses. Come and see all that the Mackinac Island Carriage Tours have to offer on beautiful Mackinac Island!
