    I can only recommend it! Very individually designed, we were a small group of 4 people, also suitable for beginners or children. The horses' home is a very nice facility, the view during the ride is fantastic, the food was lovingly and deliciously cooked, the house wine was tasty, all in all, you are very well looked after and entertained from start to finish.

    The host Gregoria is a hoot!! There are 2 guides and Hotdog, a little canine that also accompany you on foot and a driver too for a small wagon. The horses are beautiful and well cared for. My only negative about the tour is that the route is on a paved trail and much of it through a commercial area when leaving the farm. The ride is only a couple of hours round trip but the view at the top is lovely, agricultural and overlooking farms & meadows. Once back at the corral, a wonderful Farm-To-Table lunch is served family style with local produce, bread and wine. Delicious and ample!! We also did the beach/sea ride as the owner also has a corral down by the sea. Wonderful!!

    The tour was really well organized, the whole team took care of everyone at all times. Each one was dealt with. You felt very comfortable, the animals are in good hands under the circumstances and you can see how much they are loved by the whole team. The highlight, however, was the lunch, it was prepared by Maria and it was the best ever, everything fresh, everything homemade and sufficiently available, feeling the friendliness and joy of what you could do at every minute. Super morning! Thanks for that!
