Temecula Carriage Company
Charioteers at Temecula Carriage Company champion the pageantry and romance of horse-drawn-carriage rides, tracing serene, scenic routes down the back roads of Temecula's wine country. The experienced guides doff their top hats and usher riders aboard ornate wrought-iron Cinderella carriages before whispering the secret password for "go" into the ears of their elegant steeds.
