“A Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had a wonderful experience with Sabrina and the donkeys. Our kids (4 & 9) were so excited and loved riding Noisette and Ulysses.

It was a fun adventure to head off with a map and the donkeys. Sabrina was excellent at explaining how to handle the donkeys so we felt comfortable on our own...but they were such lovely, gentle animals right from the start there was never a real worry.

There was a place to stop and have a picnic half way, and the 2 hours passed quite quickly.

We did this a week ago, followed by 5 days in Paris and our kids are still talking about Noisette and Ulysses and the Eiffel Tower as highlights of our 3 week vacation.

“What a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This was a lovely experience which our two boys -6&4 loved . However as adults this was a very enjoyable time for us leading the kids on donkeys through a beautiful forest.the personalities of the donkeys and what we had to do was explained well by sabrina and everything she told us was true about them.we took the 2 hour trip which was enough for that day but I would definitely go back and explore a bit more.

“Great fun and very tranquil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Totally different from the "usual" donkey ride as you walk unaccompanied with you little one on-board around a lovely pre-defined forestry walk. My daughter loved it, dissolving in giggles every time the very greedy Ulysses dragged me off my chosen path for another little snack. Beware the puddles - they don't like them, which Ulysses demonstrated when he decided to take a quick side step to another path leaving me with no choice but to walk right through given I had to keep hold of the leash! Soggy feet, laughing all the way with our lovely natured and gentle Ulysses.

“Ballade avec les anes en deux petits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Our walk with the donkeys was great fun! Our children (two boys, 3 and 5 years old) felt like real "cowboys" (!) and enjoyed it a lot! And so we did. We would love to travel again with the donkeys for a longer period.
