Awesome experience! The walk is spectacular, both along the beach and through the mountains, where I also had the opportunity to jog and gallop. And also, at all times we felt very safe thanks to Nuno, our guide, who took some beautiful photos during the tour to remember the moment.

It was just perfect. 2 hours over hill and dale and the beach at sunset. If you want to gallop, you can gallop, if you don't want to, you don't have to :) A lot of attention is paid to you. All in all very very good.

Great!!! Super great ride! Beautiful horses; wonderful leader of the horseback ride, very professional. area fantastic; an absolute pleasure. One of the best activities we have ever booked.

Our guide loves his part of the country and explains it very well. We loved seeing the Algarve from another angle and enjoyed the typical Portuguese hearty meal. Thanks

We had a fantastic evening. The horses are very well behaved and follow every word. You can tell he loves and cares for his horses. We can only recommend it 100%
