What people are saying about Las Palmas

The booking went smoothly. We were even able to postpone the activity for 3 days at short notice by telephone. The group consisted almost entirely of beginners. We made very slow progress. A little more guidance along the way would definitely have helped. For the more experienced there was a trotting and cantering section, for which we had separated ourselves briefly. The two guides were very friendly and spoke good, simple English. The horses were very relaxed. Some were well-muscled, others were unfortunately very gaunt. It was a fun trip for us (an experienced rider and a total beginner) and we both enjoyed it.

I had a wonderful trip with Victor and Santi! We had so much fun, our group was just perfect and I met so nice people so I didn’t feel alone one second. Can recommend the tour!!

Despite the unpredictable weather, Santiago's A/B/C/D plans demonstrated his comprehensive approach to preparedness. Highly recommended!

Great hiking experience with a beautiful scenery. The guide was the best. The food in the lovely tavern was delicious :)

Great experience, good drinks/food, and watersports were so much fun! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Lanzarote!
