What people are saying about Heraklion

staff were lovely- the stable is owned by a father and daughter who are both very hospitable they can speak many languages including English, greek, german transportation wasn't included but they specifically came to pick us up as it was pretty far for us to go by bus/expensive by taxi they also provide orange juice and watermelon up in the mountains there is always a group of staff walking up with you if your horses start acting up or you need help- it's about 4 horses with 1 staff member

Everyone there is absolutely amazing! You can tell they really care for their horses and their guests. I felt like family from the start. Definitely book the lunch and ride combo as the food and wine were both homemade and delicious! They also gave great recommendations about where to go in Crete and helped you plan your trip. I will definitely book here again if ever in Crete as everything was wonderful!!

Great scenery and great hosts. The horses are very gentle and well behaved so it was a lovely gentle ride up and down the mountains. We took our 5 year old and he loved it. The guide was with him the whole time so he was completely at ease.

We had a great trip in the mountains! The horses were very nice and kind and it felt safe for everyone involved. The guide was very good at adapting the tour so that both beginners and more experienced riders felt satisfied.

This was amazing! These guys know their horses and the mountains! Always felt safe because they walked close by and understood each horse and how to tell us to react to them! Highly recommend!
