What people are saying about Santorini

My and my now Fiancé really really enjoyed this experience. From booking the tour, payment and even the ease of finding the location was stress free. The instructors made us feel welcome, wanted to know about home life and even introduced us to the history behind their business and horses. I don’t know anything about horses and their welfare, but from my experience of that day they looked, were treat and acted immaculately. I’ve no previous riding history but I felt so much better and at ease with instruction from the instructors with clear and concise instructions as my horse decided it was hungry mid tour and decided to start eating the trees. Me and my partner had plenty of photos taken off us, were checked upon regularly and even with my partner having previous riding experience, were treated equally and professionally. I would recommend this activity to anyone who wishes to do this, even for those that may be a little nervous, you will not regret these beautiful creatures.

This was an amazing experience. We had Manos as our guide and he was the absolute sweetest. He took tons of pictures for us and made us feel so comfortable on the ride. They will even schedule a transfer for you there and back if you need. This is a must book if you are in Santorini!

So much fun. Great way to see the beach side of the island. They quickly teach you how to drive an atv. Fun instructor. Then, you head out on back roads. See cool sites. Drink wine and snack.

Our tour guide, Giannis, was Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, & just so nice. He made the whole experience a lot of fun! We definitely recommend this tour!

Unforgettable experience in a magical beach with friendly instructors and lovely horses. Perfect!
