Our guide was awesome. New all of thw history of the Waipo Valley, because she grew up there. The views we're spectacular and the horses were wonderful. So glad we did it. Next time we'll do the whole day ride!

The ride itself through the forest and up the valley rim was already unbelieveable, but Ali and Miley, our guides made the entire trip an unforgettable experience. They are very knowledgeable and skilled, you feel comfortable even when it's your first time horseback riding, and...More

Top notch horses & tack. Best I've seen in this type of operation. Great ride, but noticeably shorter than 2-1/2 hours. 3/4 hour was spent in 'prep' time and mounting riders. Note: clean up your transport and your 'head honcho guide' and will add another...More
