What people are saying about Alghero

It was an awesome day. Irene is a wonderful woman. I would love to meet her again. She thought us how to make a traditional Sardinian pasta and then we ate a wonderful, delicious meal. Irene was not only a great teacher, but also wonderful home keeper, funny and very warmhearted woman. We also have met many interesting and lovely people all over the world. I send you all Baccio & Abbraccio ❤️ thanks for an amazing time together

Simply gorgeous! The leader pays close attention to which horses he distributes to whom and how they feel the horses. We only rode step on this wonderful ride, but since we were the last, it was perfectly okay for us to keep a little distance and trot. The two leaders took our cell phones and took great pictures and videos. Thank you for the great experience!

I highly recommend this. It’s a great experience, and Irene is a great host and teacher. You make pasta by hand and her family makes it taste great. Better than the area restaurants we went to

Had a great time learning how to make different pasta and eating it too ready to make it back home now

Very beautiful ride through the forrest and along the beach!
