What a wonderful experience I had today with A Classic Carriage Hire. I took my little Grandaughter Hildie for a trip with Alex and Dream and Hildie was absolutely thrilled to bits! It was a relaxing, comfortable, safe and very friendly trip. Hildie was so chuffed to be able to pat the horses Bobby and Dave before our ride began. Thank you to Alex and Dream for giving Hildie an experience she will never forget. I highly recommend this experience as a wonderful treat for little kids, and big ones too! I’ll be be doing this again! Most enjoyable!

My partner and I had a ride on the deluxe romantic carriage with Dream as our driver. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, absolutely perfect. We are now engaged, thanks for the romantic setting you supplied, the red rose, champagne and Melbourne's gardens. Thank you to the team at A Classic Carriage Hire for a perfect day, no doubt we will be back for another beautiful experience. Highly recommend doing it.

What people are saying...

Thank you for the wonderful day and making me feel like a princess lost out of a fairy tail between the charm , beauty and luxury of the leather carriage and beautiful hospitality on my wedding day with my new husband. Thank you so much the photos and memories we will cherish forever. Rina Habbershaw and Shane Habbershaw . 今回私達の結婚の記念に、Horse &carriageに乗らせていただきました。 まるでおとぎ話の世界に入ったような素敵な時間を過ごしました。心地いい風、お馬さんの歩くコトコトという音、タイヤの進む揺れ。全てが心に残る経験と思い出になりました。途中下車して写真も撮っていただきました。乗せてくれたDreamさんの人柄に歓迎でした。Melbourne に住んでる方もしくは観光で来た方に、是非とも体験していただきたいなぁと思いました。 素敵な思い出をありがとうございました。

Most romantic way to see Melbourne (even with the kids in tow) relaxing, safe and something out of the ordinary to make myself and our girls feel like princesses. Highly recommend!

Our Scout group is a specialised group for youth with disabilities, including youth in wheelchairs. By emailing & planning early we were able to take everyone (parked wheelchair at NGV cloakroom) but you need to be light enough to transfer with your own support staff. The team were quick to answer all my questions via email & we enjoyed a great carriage ride around the gardens as part of our Christmas break-up.
