Lose the guidebook and hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a slice of romance and history.. In Short Try a tour of Old Sacramento and the Capitol by horse-drawn carriage for something a little different than what the usual walking tours and guidebooks offer. Horses carry passengers past 150-year-old buildings and historic California landmarks on private tours that are intimate enough for a little romance. Four different itineraries are offered, but passengers are also welcome to create their own. Rates are based on a per group basis and extent of the tour.
