          Amazing and can’t miss!
          The trip is so fantastic! I was picked up directly from my hotel on time, and the tour had six guests total including me. All the horses are so well behaved. They asked about your horseback riding level and pick the horse with the right temperament for you. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and speaks English well. He’s also inca descendent, so he understands inca language and explains inca temple’s names and traditions. I must asked so many questions, about the temple and Cuzco just in general, and he answered all of them. We rode for about half an hour, then got off the horse to see the temple of the moon, and went inside to the see the ritual site. Then we rode the horses and climbed up the mountain and through the forest to see another cave area. He told us stories about the cave while we enjoyed the snack that they packed for us. After that, we rode down the mountain and back to the car. It was the best experience in Cuzco and one that you shouldn’t miss.

          Fun family trip
          Our family of 4 (kids 11 and 14) really enjoyed the half day tour. It was a great mix of history and cultural learning combined with relaxing and enjoying our time on the Peruvian horses.

          Absolutely amazing tour, would recommend to anyone travelling to Cusco.
          Me and my partner did this tour and it was amazing. We got super lucky and basically got a private tour. Gabriel is a fantastic tour guide who taught us so much history around Cusco and answered all of our slightly dumb foreigner questions. He also went out of his way to take us to a genuine traditional clothes shop after the tour. We speak very little Spanish so Gabriel being able to speak very good English was a nice bonus. This is a fantastic way to see the temple and learn about Cuscos history.

          Absolute must do activity!
          This experience was an absolute 10/10. Gabriel is a lovely, knowledgeable and kind man who clearly loves Cuzco and loves his horses. He picked us up on time, had our lunch prepared for us. The ranch was wonderful with happy and healthy horses that were largely able to roam around the field. He had extensive knowledge about the history of Cuzco as well as Incan history. He took his time showing us around and recommended a local shopping area where you can buy high quality, locally made textiles and the like. He drove us there and waited while we shopped despite it being over the scheduled time we had. The experience was absolutely amazing! Thankyou Gabriel!!!

          Wonderful!
          We had the most fantastic time with Gabriel, he was so friendly and accomodating when we had to reschedule due to illness. The tour itself was wonderful. Riding through the mountains and trees was relaxing, and our tour guide did a wonderful job of accomodating for my partner who had never ridden before. The tour when we got to sights was informative and so interesting. We would recommend to all!

          Wonderful and interesting experience! Lovely, docile horses that are very well taken care of by their owner Gabriel. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go again!

          Simply amazing!
          Simply amazing. The horses are well taken care off and the route we took was beautiful. They assign the horses depending on experience so everyone was happy, the more experienced riders were allowed to go for a gallop in the end which we loved. Gabriel knows a lot about the history and explained everything very well. Can highly recommend.

          Fun!
          I thought it was a really great experience. It was my first time riding a horse. I was a bit nervous but everything turned out well. I would say though make sure you bring a backpack, if it’s hot wear light long sleeves (horse takes you through some branches), and pants/shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. Strongly advise against shorts.

          Best thing there is to do in Cusco!
          I have taken adventure rides with Gabriel's on three different occasions over a span of 4 years. It's always the highlight of my travels to Peru!! Gabriel has wonderful, well-cared for horses and matches riders with a compatible horse for their riding experience. Wranglers often walk along with inexperienced riders, too. The scenery is truly breath taking and Gabriel will narrate a lot of history along the way. It's the best thing there is to do in Cusco. Door to door service from your hotel is also provided.

          Wonderful
          If I could give this experience more than five, I definitely would. Everything from the pick up to the return to Cusco, was great. I usually try and ride wherever I go, but this was far and away the most amazing experience. The horses are well looked after, gentle and sure-footed. Gabriel is a knowledgeable and interesting guide, and clearly loves his horses. The ride was nothing less than spectacular, taking in mountains, forests, Inca temples and glorious views over Cusco. A totally wonderful experience .

          Gabriel was absolutely fantastic. He picked me up from my hotel personally, and gave me a tour over all kinds of terrain. He was full of knowledge about different Inca sites and even took me cave exploring upon request. 5/5.

          Beautiful ride
          The ride at Gabriel's Ranch was so much fun. The horses were selected based upon our prior experience. The wranglers helped us mount and dismount and walked along to take care of us. The ranch is beautiful with open fields, Inca ruins, the Inca Trail, wooded areas, and scenic vistas. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride at Gabriel's ranch and would highly recommend the excursion to see the beauty of Peru.

          Exceeded expectations!
          When we booked this tour with Gabriel we didn’t really know what to expect because it was our first day in Cusco. However, it was such a lovely experience that we will never forget. We feel like we got a special taste of Cusco that we never would have gotten otherwise. The horses were so beautifully behaved, the views were unreal, and Gabriel’s knowledge of the area and of the history was priceless. Not to mention the fact that we got our own private tour just by luck because the other tourists called sick at the last minute. We are sooo grateful for Gabriel’s kindness and willingness to go above and beyond. Highly recommend!!!!

          Best thing to do in Cusco!
          I have taken the Mystic Tour 3x with Gabriel since 2019. I can’t say enough positive things about the trip! Door to door ground transportation service in a nice van with excellent driver, beautiful well-cared for horses, absolutely breath taking scenery, and in-depth knowledge and education about Incan culture and the local environment.

        My 15 year old daughter and I had a wonderful experience with Gabriel's Ranch! The owner was very accommodating, provided pick-up and drop off service, and was an excellent communicator (his English is excellent). The horses were in great condition, the scenery was amazing, and seeing some "off the beaten track" historical sites was an added bonus. Definitely would recommend!

        Gabriel is a fantastic guide. There was a group of 10 of us with kids of different ages and varied between no experience with horses to others who had lots of experience. Gabriel knew exactly which of his horses would best suit each person and made us feel comfortable. Riding through the Andes was such an incredible experience. Gabriel stopped at different sights to explain about the Inca temples and caves. We even got an afternoon snack which was very welcome on the 3 hour tour. It was a great afternoon and good to get out of the city and do something different. I would highly recommend.

        Great tour! The group was quite big, but plenty of guides came along to make sure everything went smoothly. The horses are very calm, which is great as it was my first time riding a horse. Definitely recommend this tour!

        My husband and I had a great time horse riding with Gabriel! Gabriel was a great host and made us feel very comfortable and safe on the horses (this was important as it was our first time horse riding!) Gabriel told us lots about the sites we went to and answered all of our questions. The hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient and we were told what to expect from the experience on the journey there. We were also given a snack bag.

        This is an incredible ride, there are many different horses to fit all levels of riders. Gabriel is incredibly knowledgeable about both the horses and the many sacred Inca sights and will share all his passion for both with you. This is an absolute 5* trip. I can’t thank him enough for how much this trip impacted our entire vacation!

        Best tour in Peru! That is if you love nature and horses and chilling mystical ancient sites. Gabriel picked us up promptly from our hotel and drove us to his ranch where the horses peacefully graze waiting to do their job. They are in excellent health, sweet and well behaved. I rode a mare who had a foal at her side. The foal ran along with us on our entire trail ride. So precious! We visited temple of the moon, had a spiritual cacao ceremony, ate some snacks provided by the ranch, crawled through part of the ancient cave system that used to tunnel to Cusco and other cities. Amazing views. Awesome experience!

        Instead of riding a bored horse that was tied to other bored horses like in the USA, I was able to ride Apu, see Inca ruins and the countryside near Saqsaywama (aka, Sacsayhuam), and listen to Gabriel's stories about the Incas. It was relaxing and invigorating riding Apu away from the hustle and bustle of Cusco.

        Apu is one of many sure-footed horses at Gabriel's Ranch. The pictures I took, cannot convey how I felt riding Apu on very narrow trails, which I didn't think to photograph.

        BEST TOUR EVER! Stop looking and book Gabriel’s experience, they pick you up from where you’re staying, they give you snacks, thy ask you how’s your experience with horses and they give you one that matches, I got Secreto de amor and I felt so safe and in control. Then the tour takes you to magical places that no other tour will take you. I’m really grateful, and totally will do it again :)

        I am not one to leave reviews but we had a fantastic time. Cusco was shut down because of protests and all of our excursions that we came to Peru for were canceled, but Gabriel helped save our trip! The horses were well treated and well trained, and it was a safe, comfortable, and easy ride through the scenic mountain ridge overlooking Cusco on one side and rural Peru on the other. Gabriel is passionate about sharing his culture and is as great a storyteller as he is a caretaker of his family's ranch that has been theirs for generations. We had an absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish, and learned so much!
