Alex, Manos and Barbara are perfect hosts and instructors. The love they have for their horses and the pride they have in their operation and in eachother is very evident. They are very safety conscious and the horses know the path to the beach very well. The ride is very tranquil. No stress. Lots of great picture opportunities along the beach. Highly recommended!

Great trip! The people were very nice and made us feel comfortable. Option for a small cliff jump at the private beach. Delicious vegetarian option as well as the rest of the food. It was a bit cramped on the boat so come in good time to get a comfortable seat.

This place is amazing! Manos, Alex, and Barbara are really friendly and kind. I showed up wearing shorts which isn't proper riding attire but they had me covered and gave me some lower leg protection. They provided us with helmets as well. All three members of this family owned business were very hospitable and kind. They asked us our riding experience and gave us the appropriate horses. My friend had more riding experience than I did, and they gave her a horse that was a little more challenging to ride. They are all VERY experienced with horses and do everything themselves - even the training! Manos and Alex have all been professionally involved with horses for 40 years. You can see how comfortable they all are with horses and how much they love their job. Horses are their passion and it shows. I was prepared to write more wonderful things, but the character limit stops me from writing more. Book with these guys! They are wonderful!! They take awesome pictures of you too!
Amazing experience. The views , the horses, the staff , everything was just perfect. I purposed to my now fiancée on this tour and it couldn't of been any better. From beginning to end they couldn't of organised a more magical experience. Manos and Barbara are outstanding people. I honestly feel so blessed to of found this place. I'd thoroughly reccomedd here. I'm fully sure that like me, it will be the highlight of your trip.
The experience was amazing. This was my first time riding a horse, the couple was very professional and lovely. They explained and showed us all the basics. The place was exceptional, with an amazing sunset at the beach. The beach was empty and we had a very peaceful moment. They also took our phones and took a lot of beautiful pictures. We had a mini photoshoot with the horse and sunset
Alex was a wonderful guide and you can definitely tell that him and the crew really care for and love their family of beautiful horses. My husband fell off his horse when he was 6 and he felt great after getting back on a horse again. They are such beautiful, majestic creatures and this experience has made us want to get to know them more!
Experienced Horseback riders should not expect too much “riding”, but it was perfect for me and my boyfriend who never sat on a horse before. The horses are super friendly. Also Manos and his wife are really nice. We had such a great time.:)
