This was one of our best travel excursions!! The guide is a true horseman and a very cool guy! The horses are in awesome shape and very well trained. The scenery is spectacular and the riding exciting. The pick up at Family Bakery was exactly as described and all was on time. That said, one should have good riding experience as there is truly lots of trotting and galloping. I ride four days a week and my husband has ridden a bit as well. One must be prepared to be very comfortable at all gaits. We finished the ride trotting through town which was exciting and then went for lunch there on our own when finished and that was wonderful too!!

Truly an amazing experience. I advise you to do it at 6 p.m. when the sun is setting. We often trot and we have a few canter trails. It was super cool and our guide was really nice. A great memory and beautiful photos to immortalize it all. Thank you ❤️

Te riding was lovely. The total experience lasts 2.5h, that is the overall time of them picking you up and getting you prepared, the riding and then dropping you off at the meeting point. The guides are super nice, the horses are lovely, i felt totally safe galoping up the hill. And they really make lots of beautiful pictures :) I totally recommend to everyone, who are experienced riders and want to explore Santorini on the back of a horse!
