Excellent way to see the real Aruba!

We chose the #5 experience which took us to the Alto Vista chapel mainly because this particular tour permitted beginners to gallop. The horses appeared to be well maintained and... read more

This was our first trip to Aruba and has been many years since being on a horse. We signed up for an afternoon tour and it wound up just being us! A private tour of the beach and mountains! It was a wonderful time! Our guide Daniel was so kind and friendly. His stories kept us entertained. My husband is... More

Had a great time on the horses they are well taken care of and that was important to me since I am such a animal lover. Daniel and Angel were awesome and I want to thank them for making us relaxed.

The ATV ride that Geert, our guide, took us on was spectacular. We went along the coast and through the trails to southern Aruba. The sites of the ocean along the way were simply amazing. He took care that we were all on track and safe. I would recommend this ride to anyone who wanted to see Aruba from a... More

We had scheduled the ATV tour (number 3). We knew they limited the size of the group for a more personal experience. As it turned out, just my wife and I were in the tour that day so we had our own private adventure with our guide (Harry). What a great guy to be around for 4 hours..very personable and... More

My husband and I took the three hour mountain bike tour through desert and along the beach. The views were amazing! We had two guides, Barbara and Geert, and they did a great job of tailoring the trip to our abilities. Another couple was on the tour with us, and like me, they were beginners. Barbara took us through beautiful... More

Enjoyed a wonderful, "expert-level" ride with a great, friendly guide. Note that this is a different experience than their standard trail ride, mainly because there were only two riders and our guide - almost a private tour! But we had a wonderful time. The horses were eager, and behaved extremely well. The guide was knowledgable, and led us (what felt... More
