Came here on our honeymoon and was definitely my favourite day of the week. We were picked up at our hotel by Eddie, who had us laughing from the get-go. It only got more entertaining when we arrived and met the owner Gregory and the day really kicked off. These two were such great characters and always wanted to see... More

Firstly I must apologise to Gregory for the delay in posting my review. This was our second evening trip and bbq. What fun we had - it was even more fun than the previous trip. Gregory is a real character. At 67 I thought I might be a bit too old to do this but I was helped all the... More

We were told of these stables back in May when we visited Crete for the first time but we didn't have time to visit so when we returned at the end of September it was high on our holiday must do list and we wasn't disappointed. We were picked up from the the hotel and arrived after a short drive... More

I've had a lovely day riding a horse and enjoying the beautiful scenery up in the mountains. Everything has been very well organized, I was picked up by Gregory from my hotel in the morning. We collected other people, after that Gregory brought us to the stables. The whole atmosphere there is very relaxing, all staff members were friendly and... More

The place was great, the people was very cheerful and talkative. We first had a group session which was 2 hours of riding. After riding for an hour we stopped for a break on top of a hill with a very nice view. They gave us fresh juice, fruit and even grapes from a local wine vineyard which was great!... More

We were made to feel welcome straight from the pick up from our hotel. Gregory picked us up and kept us entertained from the start. We were paired up with our horses, given a few safety instructions and were off! Eddie the guide kept us laughing the whole time which really made it a memorable trip. The horses were all... More

We had a lovely evening (despite the rain!) going up the mountains through the olive groves on horseback. I have ridden before but my boyfriend hadn't and he was a bit nervous but the staff were very reassuring (and a bit crazy!) The horses were well looked after and mostly calm. One of the workers kept giving us the most... More

We were met by Gregory from our hotel in Kokkini Hani, who immediately made us feel welcome and had us in stitches in the mini bus on the way! On arrival the people at the stables were extremely friendly and helpful with the horses. The introductions to everyone else on the tour and their paired horses was great fun as... More

Eddie picked us up from our hotel in the mini bus and we drove off to the stables which took about 20 minutes (from Kokkini Hani). We were assigned our helmets and our horses (who had some hilarious names)...and even we got new names for the day (I was baptised 'Barbie', my boyfriend was 'Ken'). Our group had mixed ability...
