It was one of the best things we did in our trip. The staff was very friendly, highly professional and with a great sense of humor. We took the sunset trip, the view was amazing, we had a lot of fun during the journey and at the dinner after the ride. The atmosphere was very "family like" and the organizers... More

It was an amazing ride where everyone went out together up the hills on really quiet horses and really friendly people. We were all given a horse to ride along with an explanation on how to ride before we set off up the hill. Once we got to the top we stopped for pictures, food and drinks. The experienced riders...

I have never posted a review before but I felt I had to let people know about Finikia stables in Crete. My family, 2 children age 16 and 11 had a fantastic time. Gregory and Eddie are fab hosts and very entertaining. All the staff are very helpful. My daughter is an experienced rider but the rest of us are... More

First we had a short introduction lesson about horse riding. After that there was two hour riding to the mountain during sunset. Afterwards we had bbq... More

We organised this through our tourist rep and had no expectations of what the trip would involve other than we would get to sit on a horse. As it turned out it was one of the high points of our stay in Crete. We were picked up by a character named Eddie who took us to the stables with a... More

We took our daughters on a trip from our hotel riding with these guys. We had a fantastic day. We were taken by minibus to the stables outside hersonissos (not the beach stables). There were about 15 of us on our trip. An assessment was done of our abilities (ranging from nothing to very experienced) and we were introduced to... More

What a wonderful evening we spent with gregory and his family and friends. From our entertaining pickup to our delicious food. We were matched appropriately to our horses and shown how to mount and control oir horses. I was experienced and had a spirited horse but less experienced were givenore gentle steeds. We were taken up into the hills and... More

We wanted to do something different while in Crete, apart from just beaches and pool, and also something in the evening when the sun wasn't so hot (there was a bit of a heatwave when we were there). This trip was perfect- George (so friendly and funny and good with the kids) picked us up at 5:45 and drove us... More

My husband and 2 young children went in the sunset tour. Gregory suggested this would be best for children to avoid the day time heat and he was spot on. We booked via emailing them directly. My 5 year old was able to ride her own horse for pretty much the whole time (led by someone from the stables to... More

I definitely recommend you to take a tour of horseriding here! My boyfriend and I always dreamed to ride a horses, and we are so happy that our first horseriding was in Hersonissos! We took a day tour, we climbed in mountains by horses with group and went back to stable. The views from mountains, great sense of humour of... More
