We had such a wonderful time! Holger is very interesting, polite and educated person. He gave us a lot of historical information and we really enjoyed horse back riding like never before. The horses are super beautiful and well taken care of, they are experienced and help you to make your ride as pleasant as possible. This is definitely a must do!

We were looking for a half day activity in Cusco and my girlfriend decided to take me on a horseback adventure, we asked for the shortest route and did the mystical tour.

a taxi picked up us from our hotel at 9am, the taxi was clean and the driver very friendly.

Once we arrive to the ranch, there was Holger and his team, a group very friendly horses, I never rode a horse,, then they gave me a very calm white horse, my girlfiend had horses, then she took a big gray horse, both horses were amazing on his job, the guide as well, he explained us alot about the incas, the colonial times and of course about the archeologycal sites we visited.

we finished on time, right before the rain !.. it was a very good timing from our guide.

Thanks so much for the experience, my girlfriend was very glad with all the service. and for me it was an execellent fisrt time on horses!

Horses were amazing. Good condition and well trained. Guide was excellent and could give tour in English. You can see he has a passion. Best ride ever despite the rain. Felt very happy and content after the ride. It completed my Cusco trip on a high.

We took a few hours to venture with this company for riding and adventuring to naturalistic ruins vs. typical tourist big draws. We were not disappointed.

Our group of 5 had a quick introduction. We were assigned very healthy horses and the adventure began. We went for a nice walk, trot into the vast national park visiting Devil’s Valley and specific Rainbow Temple. Beautiful area, quick crawl into a small cave and some beautiful pics. It was a very nice trek. Holger is very thorough in his explaining as well as customer service centric.

After a nice snack provided by guide, we ventured off to our second location, Temple of the Moon. A nice overview provided by guide (Holger) again gave us the history and present day awareness.

The rain was just starting to come down and a nice quick trot back to the ranch and we made it just in time before the downpour.

The guide had very good English, we actually traversed part of the historical Inca trail - very cool, and with great horses and sites, you can not go wrong. They pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. Highly recommended.

I had such a great time with Holger and our small group! Easy pick up/drop off service directly at my hotel. Horses were well trained and well cared for. Our group had a variety of skill levels in riding and everyone felt comfortable after Holger’s explanation. It was a beautiful day for some exploring in the countryside near Cusco - definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and caring. My daughter and I are both experienced riders and the other girl had never rode before. He gave her good instructions and was always making sure she knew what to do. The trail was full of beautiful scenery as well as some archeological sites. Most importantly horses were well cared for. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I enjoyed the morning ride. We were picked up at our hotel and our guide, Holgar, brought our horses out for us to meet. The horses were well cared for and safe, they took great care of us the entire ride. We enjoyed getting to feel the gait of the Pasos out on the trail. I rode a handsome buckskin stallion, Fuego, who was a complete gentleman for our entire ride. Holgar was pleasant and knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the beautiful views. We had a nice snack overlooking some of the ancient ruins. Well worth the money...and a lot of fun for any riding ability!

Mrs. tracy: thanks so much for your review, we really enjoyed to ride with you as well, Our horse "Fuego" is one of the best horses on the region and he is the father of our two small stallios, hope to see again and show you more of our culture on our horses. Best Wishes !.

We did a wonderful 3-hour horseback ride just outside of Cuzco. The ranch felt like a family operation with the horses all in great shape as were the saddles, etc.

Our trip ended up being private with just three of us which was nice, but even if there had been others I am our confident and knowledgeable lead guide Beny, and horseman Greggory who accompanied us the entire ride, could easily handle large groups. They both made us fell well taken care of.

Once we finished a quick tour of the Temple of the Moon, we rode away from everything and felt like we were riding on your own private ranch through the stunning countryside.

Beny did a great job. We stopped for snacks and to learn about some of the ruins...and just to share stories. Really perfect.

If you are looking for a few hours on horseback this is the tour for you!

After a number of tours/activities it was so great that the ranch where you start the ride is just a short taxi from Cuzco. They arranged for round trip transportation so the experience was extremely easy from start to finish.

We had a wonderful afternoon ride with our guide Holgar. The communication with him by email was quick and efficient. Our hotel pick up was right on time, when we arrived Holgar introduced us to the horses and made sure we were comfortable. He carefully matched each one of us with the best horse for our ability. I have had horses my whole life and was very impressed with their care and manners! The ride was very interesting with beautiful scenery including Inca ruins. Highly recommended - Holgar is an amazing guide!

My boyfriend and I booked the tour for 3 hours horseback riding session. We had a wonderful time with horses, and the view was breathtaking! I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to enjoy the scenery, also no prior experience with horses is needed.
We enjoyed the mountain and some old remainings of historical ruins. I am not so much of a hiking person but with horse riding, I get to enjoy the view on the mountain without having to hike all the way by myself. I will for sure want to do it again if I come here again.
