Absolutely brilliant from start to finish
Horses are clearly much loved and all lovely characters.
The guides are experienced , kind and patient
Everything is taken care of from safety helmets to crocs for riding in the sea
The tour was a delight , the sunrise spectacular
Swimming in the sea on horse back was great fun

A MUST DO on any visit to Paros .

Wonderful experience! I went for the 2h30 sunrise outing + swimming with the horses in the sea this morning and had such a great time! Everyone was lovely, from the owner who picked me up at the hotel to the three guides who accompanied the tour. The horses too were great, very kind and well behaved. Swimming with the horse was a very fun and unique experience, and the tour is beyond scenic! Very good value for money, I highly recommend!!

Memorable ride for our family of 3, each with different levels of riding experience.
I am so glad that we took the tour although I was initially put off by the negative comments here... so here's how it went for us having Ivan and Emma as tour guides, and some recommendations.
The highlight of the tour was not so much the sunrise but the ride in the sea - our first experience of this kind but so much fun for us and..., I dare to say, for the horses. We had a great splash, Emma did her best to get us all wet from helmet to toe :)
The ride up to the beach was a nice walk&trot, the ride back took the time we needed to dry off, admire the new residential area on the East coast of the island. Thanks Ivan for the tavern recommendation, we took up on your suggestion for lunch and had the best moussaka ever.
The horses are well kept and they obviously know the drill so they need very few ‘instructions’ from the rider, especially if you’re a beginner. During the tour ride, if you’re an experienced rider you can join the canter group or, if you’re a beginner or simply don’t feel comfortable at the gallop, do make sure you let your guides know so they arrange you stay at the right pace for you.
Don’t be surprised by some unannounced trotting along the way but make sure you don’t override the horses in front of you and you should be fine. We felt safe and in control throughout the tour.
We made sure we wore sneakers we could afford to get wet but if you don’t want to do that, at the center they provide crocs you can borrow for free. Crocs with spurs as Ivan’s are not available though 😊

As two students from the UK, we did not expect a whole lot and thought we would give it a whirl. After completing the sunset tour we were amazed. I wouldn't think I would rave about this but as we left we said to ourselves we would jump on tripadvisor as the whole experience was amazing from start to finish! The horses were extremely well trained and perfect for both nervous and experienced riding - they tailor the horse to your level. The owners and the two lovely girls who took us on the tour all were very welcoming and made the experience perfect. Amazing views along the way, with which the girls took plenty of photos of us which we were able to view an hour after we finished. We really enjoyed it, had a great laugh and it was an extremely pleasant one and a half hours spent. Well worth the money and I would recommend this to anyone coming to Paros!

Come to Paros , come to Kokou so we can show you a great time . You do not need to know how to ride and we do not only walk.

I’ve ridden in many places over the years, but Kokou’s morning tour was an absolute standout! The scenery is stunning and the time of the day is magical. Ivan, Dany and Emma genuinely go above and beyond to make you have the experience of a lifetime - be it getting into the water to splash everyone or running on foot up and down the line to check gears! The part in the sea was truly epic. Both myself and my (beginner) boyfriend were assigned wonderful horses we felt completely comfortable on. The pictures they took are lovely. We also very much enjoyed Ivan’s company & the chats throughout the trail! Make yourself a favour and book this if you are in Paros! Don’t worry about negative reviews - those are from people who didn’t respect the safety rules and got in trouble as a result.

A magical sunrise experience. The horses are healthy & beautiful with owners who are funny & passionate. I loved it.
_______________________________________
As an animal lover I was happy with the free living space that the horses have and the care that they receive. That allowed me to enjoy a guilt free ride with a horse that seemed to have as much fun running through the water as I did.

The other riders were nice and I felt included in the group even though I showed up on my own. We moved through the trail like a tribe and that was really nice.

The owner is super funny and I appreciate that I was asked to leave my camera behind so that I could better appreciate each moment without being distracted by the desire to capture social media pictures.

They take pictures along the way and upload them a few hours after the ride. One of mine is attached to this review.

I highly recommend anyone in need of a magical sunrise morning to try it.

Great horses, great guides, great weather, great memories, in wonderful places that we couldn’t have seen other than going by horse. At the perfect time to enjoy the sunset on the bay of Naoussa. Ivan and Ema where super thoughtful and friendly and thanks to them we could have an amazing experience with the horses, in the water and on the beautiful trails along the coast. It was definitely worth waking up early, we highly recommend !
+ the photo that they took are great and make the perfect souvenirs we keep from our stay in Paros
+ they speak multiple languages and among them all : French :)

It was actually the sunrise , much better than the sunset , more vivid colors and everyone is asleep so it is a magical moment as you say. Thankyou for coming and help us keep our horses in theese difficult times.
