Overall rating

We were traveling with two adults and three children (including a baby with a stroller) and everything went very well from the transport to the actual activity. Driver, guide and crew on board were all very helpful and friendly. Price performance is just OK. Considering that it is already quite full when the tour is fully booked, it could be a little cheaper. We wouldn't have wanted to spend more than two hours. But there's no need to worry, even when fully booked, there are plenty of places upstairs and downstairs without crowds for the best spot. If you are traveling with small children, you should definitely take this tour with this provider.

This activity was just amazing! First of all the transfer was very quick and comfortable. The team was super helpful and kind! We felt very safe every single minute, the horses were cute, friendly and well maintained. Big thanks to the boys who took care of us and took great pics!!! Highly recommend!

It was incredibly money-worth service and experience. They should correct their programme name- It was not only Hammam bath and spa. We also got amazing proper head to toe massages. All staffs there worked really hard to give us best service. I would like to give them 10 out of 10!

everything as described before. very nice experience and I can totally recommend

We had a lot of fun! The trip was amazing and fascinating! Thank you guys!
