“Overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Guides spoke no English, one of our horses had an obvious bad hoof, the other one very undisciplined. Guides failed to communicate to half group we should canter so we stood by and missed it, but it was very short anyway. Scenery good though and nice lunch but we been to much better riding experiences elsewhere.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience something out of the ordinary, out of the routine of the everyday life. It was an excellent day, Luciano (the guide) is very friendly and easygoing, the experience is well organised. He came to pick us up at the hotel around 8.30am. We have driven around 1hr to the estancia where you prepare to ride the horse. The horses are great and friendly. Well trained. You ride around 1.5hr to the top of a mountain where you can have great view of the glacial, then half an hour more of riding to have lunch in the middle of the wood (meat al disco with onions, great!). The wind blowing, the river singing, the smell of asado and the argentinian wine makes your blood flowing and magically you forget all your problems at once. The time to have a quick nap and you are back on the horse for the last ride back to the estancia. Great day! Grazie Luciano.....

“Eh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

The guides were nice but spoke next to no English. While the view was pretty it was a truly a walk, not even much trotting. Lunch was decent but plain. Not the highlight of the trip by a wide margin... just another way to view the glacier.
