The tour group is a little difficult to find in the park but if you ask people will tell you where to find them. We told the tour guide,Jeremy, what we wanted to see & he suggested the private 1.5 hour tour. We were glad we did the 1.5 tour because of how much we saw. We had people in... More

Was on the island this past weekend and the line was about 2 hours for the standard Mackinaw Island Carriage tour so I used my phone and stumbled on this one by accident. There was NO line and the price for 4 was identical to the cost for the standard one. This tour is much more private and experiences the... More

My aunt, cousin and I took this tour as we had read about the local drivers....we weren't disappointed. Our driver was a lifelong island resident who shared so much information and insight with us! We laughed and talked with him the whole trip. He does wedding carriages so knew some spots for a great photo shot and willingly paused for... More

Had a delightful one hour ride providing a great view of the city and the great houses of the Island. We had a very knowledgeable driver. The carriages carry 4 people at $30 per person. There are 5 carriage companies. I recommend Arrowhead. The carriages are located across the street from the Visitor's Center.

My wife and I were looking to take a carriage ride, but didn't like the large crowds on the public ride. We happened upon a couple that were looking for another couple to share an Arrowhead carriage with so that the cost would be about the same as the public ride. We joined them and decided to take the 1... More

While I can't compare this to jumping on a public tour, I can say that our experience with Tyler was great. An islander who knows everyone, he took us on a great tour to places we would not have otherwise seen. Get your group together and tour the island with this company, it is worth it.

We've taken the more well known tour many, many times. While we've enjoyed it, Arrowhead Carriages is a completely different experience. It's far more personalized and you will see parts of the Island that the other tour doesn't go to. Our driver, Blake was just fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better tour. Blake was personable and very knowledgeable.... More

My wife and I took this tour and were not disappointed. It was one hour and very informative. The driver grew up on the island and had a lot of interesting stories. The carriage was built for 4-6 people so it wasn't one of those large group tours and he asked questions of us so he could decide what we... More

Our bed and breakfast recommened the Arrowhead Carriages, saying their drivers were local and know more about the island. Our driver had grown up on the island and told us what it is like to live there year round. He knew who lives in each home. He also knew a lot about his horses.
