    This is a very neat experience! It is a unique path through the countryside. We saw vineyards up close and traveled through a canyon of volcanic ash. Our guide, Amber, was knowledgeable and very friendly. We then rode along a private beach and our guides took some pictures of us on our horses for us. Would highly recommend as an activity in Santorini!!!

    Because there were people in our group who had not booked the ride for experienced riders, the final distribution of the horses took longer than (I suspect) was usual. However, it is an amazing experience to discover a landscape on the back of a horse that you would otherwise not get to. The horses look well cared for and listen well. Especially if you've been on the back of a horse several times and understand how to keep them on their toes. Real experience is not necessary, however, because 2 supervisors are driving along who know very well what they are doing. I liked it so much that I want to do the ride again

    Be careful because it is a walk in step for beginners. Positive point is that for experienced riders we are offered to gallop along the beach. There is no round trip pickup. The guide was not very talkative, it's a shame. It was still a great experience for my partner and myself.
