The tour was just amazing! Janette and her husband are great tour guides who also pay close attention to safety. The price is more than justified. Super nice photos are taken. The tour takes a total of 2 hours. with preparation rather 3 hours. If you arrive by bus (the buses run very irregularly and nobody really knows when), the guides can also drive you home. With us they didn't even charge a fee. The animals are also treated very well. It is definitely worth the experience and recommended for any horse lover !! Thank you for this unforgettable experience.

It was amazing to sit on the horse while watching the sunset. To ride in such amazingly beautiful surroundings was a memory I’ll cherish forever. Our guide was super nice, he made us feel safe. But don’t expect to learn much history on this tour when you cant really hear anything the guide says because his in front leading the line of the horses. But if you want to ride a horse in beautiful nature, I recommend this.
