Best horse riding experience ever. Lunch was good, horses were friendly and well trained even for first time riders. Eddy and gregory had a great sense of humor. I had a chance of riding on 2 different horses as my friend decided to sit in the wagon on the way back.

Eddie came and picked us up at the hotel in the morning. We sang and laughed all the way to the stable. Eddie is such a fun and entertaining guy and he made our experience so much better than it would have been if he wasn't there. The horses looked well and all though Eddie joked about giving all the... More

My wife & I had never ridden horses before, but we both really enjoyed the riding and the evening as a whole. Our host, Eddie, was very enthusiastic, funny & entertaining. The ride was a slow trot up the hill to a great viewpoint in the fading light. We were able to control the horses adequately and the 1 experienced... More

Went on a sunset trek which had been booked as a beach trek. Although only a little of the trek was along the beach which was a bit disappointing it was still a lovely experience. Our guide was Hassan who was excellent and the horses were well trained and looked after. Would recommend as a pleasant way to pass a... More

My experience at this excursion could not have been better. The horses which were beautiful and clearly well looked after seemed happy and content, the staff were more than happy to provide anything you could think to ask for, Gregory and Eddie did a great job to make sure our day was one to remember! (I won't ruin the surprises... More

My wife and I just returned from Crete. We loved all of it! The horseback riding was terrific. My wife requested a sunset ride which was accommodated easily and the guide made certain we had opportunity to get all the photos we wanted. I would do it again.
