What people are saying about Santorini

Manos, Barbara, and Alex were absolutely amazing and kind. You feel as if you are supporting true local business, and they make you feel as if you are at home away from home. You can tell horses mean everything to them, and it shows in the experience. Such positive people! They took about 30 photos of us / videos on top of that. Using our phones, which was fine with us! You feel safe on the horses, this made beginners like me and my wife feel good. The black sand, the beach, you feel like your in a 007 movie. Book this!!! Don’t overlook it!!

Manors, Barbara, and Alex were absolutely amazing! I have a bit of riding experience so was paired with Kazaldo who is an absolute sweetheart. So many wonderful photos, the beach was amazing, and the horses were incredible. I had the chance to trot and ride a bit on my own which was amazing as well while they took great care of the other beginner riders in the group. Highly, highly recommend - I jumped off and immediately asked to go again. :)

The guides were excellent and the horses are very well trained. We had a large group with both experienced riders and some who had never been on a horse. They did a great job matching horses with rider ability. The timing of the ride was perfect for beautiful sunset photos on the beach and a couple other locations. Highly recommended!

A beautiful ride through vineyards opening up to the black sand beach of the Aegean Sea. The guides were very friendly and worked hard to ensure we enjoyed our ride but stayed safe.

The guide was experienced, and kind. We had the best time ever, we would love to come back for sure!
