The perfect way to see Cape May is to take one of the many tours offered. Tours vary with the season from historical tours, bike tours, Horse & carriage tours to food tours, winery tours and brewery tours. There are tours geared to every age and interest with themed tours added during the holidays.
Cape May Carriage Tours
Cape May Carriage Tours are a “not to be missed” adventure. No two tours are the same – each take a different route with many stories and historic information provided by the driver. Enjoy the Victorian architecture that makes Cape May famous as you relax in a horse-drawn carriage and listen to your guide as they take you back in time. Get in the holiday spirit by taking a romantic Christmas lights tour and enjoy the holiday lights on a crisp evening nestled under the warm blanket in the carriage.
Step onto a red and green MAC trolley and take a tour the easy and comfortable way. You will learn everything you want to know about Cape May, America’s first seaside resort. Tours include the Historic District Trolley Tour, the Combination Trolley/Physick Estate Tour and the “Best of the Shore in 2018” Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour to name just a few. Stop by the information booth at the end of the Washington Street Mall for a complete list of trolley tours and for tickets.
