    Great experience

    The driver and the guide were very friendly, the horses are well prepared, and in the lunch box were enough sandwiches and fruits. The drive from the center lasted 2,5 hrs one way and the horseback riding 5 hrs. The landscape is very beautiful. It is an experience to be repeated.
