Myself, my partner and my partner’s 13 year old daughter originally went on the riding tour in August last year and it was something that we really wanted to do again when we returned to Crete in April. Gregory is a very kind and genial host who spares no effort to ensure that everyone has a great time. The horses... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Everyone was extremely friendly, lots of jokes, and great food. The horses are very used to their trail so there's no need to worry about experience level. The views are quite pretty and the horses too. Some of the jokes were a little PG13 but I think these guys know their... More

Riding with Gregory was one of the highlights of a wonderful trip to Crete. He collected me promptly from my hotel, ensured we had great conversation all the way to the stables and then made everyone in the group feel comfortable with his comedic, friendly, informative manner. I was on my own for the day since my husband doesn't ride,... More
