We took the afternoon ride and thoroughly enjoyed it. Easy pickup/return from our hotel and we rode in a nice easy group of 5 plus our guide, Daniel. A lovely ride along the cliffs of the northeast shore and along the desert trails with some opportunities to trot/canter if you wished. We're both novice riders and had no trouble. The... More

I always try to book a horseback experience while traveling. This was one of the very best. Daniel and Jeanette were our guides and we were fortunate to have both of them with us for only the six of us. I was on my own and bit nervous going out by myself but Daniel and Jeanette ensured all of our... More

My husband and I want for a private horse back ride at The Gold Mine Ranch. Everything about this experience was wonderful. We were picked up at the condo where we were staying. Jeanette, the driver and our tour guide during the ride, was fabulous. She was humorous, informative and an excellent equestrian. The horses are very well trained. Jeanette... More

We did the afternoon tour with 3 guides. My husband and I don't like long tours so the timing of this and length was perfect. We were in a group of about 12. We have 2 teenage girls. We were the only ones on the tour who had not rode before but that did not matter. We all got the... More

The guides (Jeanette and Danny) were friendly and attentive. The experience was memorable. The views were incredible. My kids can't stop talking about it. We have awesome pictures and amazing memories. Definitely a must do attraction if visiting the area.

We had a great time overall. The pick up at the hotel, the instructions before the tour, the guides, the horses, the views, the beach, was all flawless. The only thing I wasn't too crazy about is the surprise offering of your pictures that someone else takes professionally and at cost. Would have been nice to know that before we... More

If you plan on going horseback riding in Aruba you have to go to the Gold Mine Ranch! I have ridden horses since I was 7 and have been on many tours and these guys go above and beyond. My boyfriend and I decided to do a private tour and he has never been on a horse before. They matched... More

Picked us up in a timely manner, and kept us entertained throughout the duration of the car ride to the ranch. Once there, you are greeted by many of the staff and tour guides, who were all very friendly. For all of us being first timers on a horse, the guides did a very good job explaining how to ride...

We brought a family member back to Aruba and did a private tour with Jeanette again. As always, she made the tour fun and informative. Jeanette is so friendly, funny and just a great people person. We will return :)
