AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Salman the instructor was great and the horses were very well trained. Definitely a mesmerising experience as riding alongside the mountain view is something Ill never forget.

What can I say. What a breathtaking tour. Yes, u can take a million tours on the beach…BUT galloping up a mountain surrounded by olive trees and shades of red, green, orange and the vast blue Cretan skies above you ❤️… that is the stuff of dreams. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned rider, you will make memories that last a lifetime. ALSO the horses are legit living their best life. They get to spend the evenings roaming the mountains and are well fed and taken care of. I cannot wait to go back to Deres and go on another tour in the near future. ❤️

We made the easy drive to Deres from our villa in Platanias. Elisavet kindly welcomed us and we prepared for our ride. Nervous around horses, I was pleased to see that my horse riding daughter was very comfortable with her horse and the trail leader (I've forgotten his name, I'm so sorry!) so she was off and I was able to sit and enjoy a delicious coffee with Elisavet.

Deres is a beautiful place in the cool mountains and the horses appear very happy and content here. My daughter had a lovely ride and it was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend Deres!

Absolutely amazing from pick up to drop off. We were picked up outside our hotel, I didn't go horse riding but was taken to the stables with my kids. They had a fabulous time on the trek and I enjoyed relaxing at the stables.
I've never seen horses that are as happy as these, they looked really well cared for and not over worked at all.

Excellent from start to finish, highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I had an incredible time which we won't forget any time soon! Elisavet and Suleiman were both very helpful and lovely, picking us up and guiding our horses respectively. Suleiman was especially impressive, the horses clearly respect him and keenly listen to his command, and Suleiman clearly loves the horses dearly. Our horses - Margherita and Dias - were both, consequently, gentle and easy to ride. Though it was our first proper horse riding experience, my girlfriend and I were both confidently trotting by the end of it and even galloped a couple of times! I would highly recommend this horse riding experience to anyone who's interested in giving horse riding a go through the beautiful Cretan countryside.
