Gabriele is a perfect tour guide, first off his communication the days ahead and day off around the pick up at our Airbnb was great, he clearly communicated how and by who we were being picked up.

With regards to the tour itself, I never had ridden a horse before and he clearly explained the basics on how to control the horse and he has 2 other guides along with the tour helping me on and off the horse and help me with tips.

We stopped at several places and Gabrielle explained in a fun and informative way this history of the sights we visited. I highly recommend his tours for the reasons above and the amazing views you will have from the horse.

A PERFECT tour and experience - Gabriel, the owner is very kind and polite, he took me from my hotel in Cusco and also drive me back after the tour. I ended up alone in the tour as the others postpone, so it was a really great private tour with Gabriel and his great horses (a peruvian paso - a peruvian "dancing" horse!!!)
Gabriel kindly shared his knowledges on old inca traditions while visiting the sacred places like The Moon Temple and Chacan Mountain. As a big fan of this great creature - the horse, I really appreciated the loving and caring way Gabriel treated his horses at his ranch. A really great experience that I am looking forward to repeat as soon as possible! Thank You Gabriel!

The tour was very beautiful. My boyfriend and I took the advanced tour and it was only us and the guides (Gabriel himself and another guy). Even though my boyfriend doesn’t have a lot of experience they gave him a sweet horse and everything went very well (there wasn’t any crazy gallop or anything). Most of the horses on the ranch looked good but a couple of horses did seem a bit malnourished - but as two veterinarian students we know this can be caused by many reasons. All in all we recommend the tour and Gabriel was an amazing guide.

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!

The weather was great. The ride was perfect, and so was the service (hotel pickup, visit to moon temple, picnic in the middle...). The horses were very well behaved, the rides were smooth and steady. And the view on the top of the mountains was fantastic. We even had an unexpected companion, the cute dog in P1, who follows us for quite a bit of distance. And we like how Gabriel thinks of his horses as his kids and is so gentle with them.

Highly recommend! It was a fascinating trip! The breathtaking beauty of nature made my day. If you are a nature lover, it's a must-go trip in Cusco. Actually, I feel it's one of the best days of my life. Gabriel is very very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable and speaks good English. He treats his horses very well, using his words "like family". His family has lived here for generations, and he knows the history and culture of Cusco like the back of his hand. I hope I can see him and the cute horses again if I have time!

Gabriel was hands down the best tour guide we had in Peru! He is so friendly and tells amazing stories about growing up on his beautiful land and getting to know the nature surrounding it. The horses are treated so well - “like family” Gabriel said, and do a wonderful hike around the area to the many sacred sights. Gabriel also have a tour of the amazing caves by the ranch. We had so much fun learning the history and making our way through these ancient pathways! What a steal of an experience and a way to get out of the city and into a more authentic rural Cusco experience. Highly recommend!

The perfect way to unwind from the extreme. The guide (Boss of the ranch) is very friendly with a great sense of humor and caring attitude. Horses are beautiful and understanding.

I was a complete beginner at riding a horse but Gabriel made me feel comfortable straight away. You could see how much he cared for his horses and informed us that they are free to roam around 60 acres when not being ridden. The horses were given plenty of breaks during the ride when we stopped at archaeological sites and for a picnic provided by Gabriel. I experienced a different companies horse riding in Mendoza and it was awful, Gabriel's ranch is something else. I can't recommend it highly enough
