We decided to take this tour with our six year old in the afternoon since it rained most of the day and was cold in the morning. I had only been on a horse once before abut 10 years ago, but Alberto was very good about teaching commands for the horses. He was also very helpful for my husband who has very bad arthritis in his hips, and he adjusted his stir-ups and helped him during the tour. Even if raining the scenery is incredible, and the swim in the waterfall is super fun. Alberto is most helpful and very personable. If I had more time I would take the tour again!
