I read ONLY the positive reviews and booked the 4pm tour :( Please save your money for a beach tour with another company. Read the responses of the owner to other reviewers that have had very valid issues and you'd quickly realize that there will...More

Exactly what Kasey L said. But I would add to get the 8am ride so you get fresh horses. that's 'cause they have an 8, 9 and 10 am rides and they use the same horses.
