I love to ride and I love to travel and my favourite thing is to combine the two! Rudy's Rancho sounded like the place to head. So when we got to Las Galeras I walked along to beach to say hello and organise a ride for the next day. Rudy and Caroline seemed fun and friendly and the horses I... More

We wanted gentle horses with excellent obedience, my sister wanted a... More

I had a lot of fun. He is a super nice guy and takes his time to show you around the wonderful beaches at Las Galeras. He speaks german very well, too, and doesn't bother about group sizes. Very friendly and helpful.

If you are on vacation in Las Galeras, and you want to discover the area in a very nice way with great people then go to Rudy's Rancho. We went horse back riding with our kids, ages 4, 6 and 7 plus the parents, and Rudy and his crew, we had the best time, he took us to remote places,... More

Horseback with Rudy is as pleasant and relaxing as it can get. He is a super nice guy and takes his time to show you around the wonderful beaches at Las Galeras. He speaks german very well, too, and doesn't bother about group sizes. Go ahead and book your ride if you are around, it's worth it so much!

Scenic ride through back roads. Rudy was easygoing and encouraging and developed a great rapport with my daughter (8 years)

Reasonable, the horses are well kept and the service is friendly and reliable. The ranch itself is a trip. A variety of farm animals and birds, so beautifully kept. The walk to the ranch from the beach was a breeze...to the left as you face the beach and follow the signs. Hope to see you again soon.

Rudy's Ranchero is one of the best family friendly attractions around. Rudy took excellent care of my kids who were inexperienced at riding while providing proper supervision to my kid who knew how to ride. Rudy took us on a wonderful tour of Las Galeras and the beach. The price was very reasonable. Rudy is a gem.

I don't really write a lot of reviews but when I had an exceptional service I have to pass it on, so that others can enjoy it too. One of the things on my bucket list is to ride a horse on a tropical beach and it came true. Thanks to Rudy at Rudy's Rancho. It was absolutely a fabulous... More

We did not do a horseback riding tour with Rudy but we did go there and talk to Rudy and check out the horses and the place. We had already booked another horseback excursion so we couldn't change it up. But, next time we'll definitely come to Rudy's Rancho. From what we saw and after talking to others who had... More
