My husband and I booked a one hour horse riding experience at Cemals Ranch and we had a fantastic time. Everyone at the lovely ranch was so welcoming, informative & friendly. Zia our guide was amazing. The horses are beautiful, healthy and so calm and the route was really peaceful. Highly recommend this ranch to anyone visiting the Cappadocia area as you won't be disappointed.

A superb hack in the glorious landscape of Cappadocia. We were two families mad keen on horse riding; the stables are clean and tidy and most of the horses are in good condition. We had an excellent 2 hour walk, no chance of a trot due to the terrain, and loved the striking rock formations and being out in the fresh air. We would certainly return again. Cemal (Jemal) and his family are very welcoming and friendly. The young lads who accompanied us were respectful and great to have leading the way.

We took the one hour horseback riding trail. Everything was amazing, our guide Ziyad was very kind and knowledgable, helped guide us through the trail. Both of our horses were very well trained. Ziyad took pictures and videos of us riding. Definitely one of my favorite experiences in Cappadocia, 10/10 would recommend and come back in my next visit.

We opted for the 2 hour horse ride during the day. It was a great experience.

I spoke to a few places before finding Cemel Ranch and found them a bit off putting (safety aspects/rudeness), Cemal on the other hand was very friendly and happy to answer questions (as one of us had never ridden a horse before).

The horses were in good shape (however, I'm no expert) and friendly.

The views and the rock formations are pretty incredible.

Our guide Amir was very helpful with the horses and with taking pictures. He went out of his way to ensure we were happy.

All in all it was great few hours. I look forward to going back next time I'm in Cappadocia.

Wonderful experience with Cemal’s sunset horse riding tour. They let my 5 year old daughter share a horse with my wife. Hotel pick up and drop off included. Horses looked well cared for. The owner and staff are amazing and took great care of us. They took plenty of pics and videos of us. Highly recommend!

The horses looked healthy and happy, the tour was also good. Though I had preferred a higher pace, for example if the guide would've been on a horse too. But understandable for the safety maybe, the guide had to be on foot. Other than that, Amir the guide was very sympathetic and warm. He did a great job. I enjoyed the ride, the nature and the views. Amir also had a great spot and took nice pictures! I would recommend!

We had a lovely time on the two hour horse ride. The views along the way of vineyards and valley's were beautiful. Our guides Suleiman and Mohamed were lovely and friendly and kept us safe. The horses looked like they are well looked after and were very well behaved and gentle. We had an enjoyable morning and I would recommend visiting Cemal Ranch.

It was the perfect choice going with Cemals at a sunset riding tour. We were riding for two hours through beautiful nature. The staff respect your riding experience. They choose the perfect horse for you! So don’t hesitate to contact Cemal even you are a non experienced horse rider. 😊

Thank you for everything Cemal! I will never forget this experience! You made my Cappadokia vacation something really, really special. I wish you, your family, your staff all the best! I hope we see each other again one day!
