Great trip where you can see the wild horses and learn much about the island. Weather was cold but it was well worth the trip. Gator, our guide was very informative about everything on the island.

First we took a Segway tour. Our guide, Terry was wonderful and so fun that we decided to book the wild horse adventure. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Terry for a great experience.
