What people are saying about Santorini

An absolute must activity to do on your visit to Santorini!! We had the most incredible experience riding on these lovely horses! They are docile and so well behaved, and you can tell the owners have a real connection with them, the horses are all friends and they know the routine inside out themselves so even if you are not a confident rider- you'll be absolutely fine! We chose the sunset package and it was worth every penny! We got to see Santorini's sunset in an undisturbed, non-crowded environment and was close up with it too and not to mention, all the photos the owners of the business helped us to take are all lovely. Georgia who lead our group taught me a lot about Santorini and it was so amazing to learn about the culture and buildings. It's an activity I would happily pay to go again!

It was absolutely perfect, organisation, timing, the owners, horses, I have nothing bad to say. Barbara, Alex and Manos were great, their energy and passion made a big difference, they always had a smile on their faces, we’re asking questions and initiating conversations and taking so many pictures and videos just so you have a good memory I really enjoyed it, my horse Gazaldo was very calm, nice and he listened very well. This was my best experience in Thessaloniki and if I could I would come back. At the end they offered us water, called a taxi for some and said a proper big goodbye. I wish them all the best, people make very big difference to an experience and this was it. I hope you get many good customers

This was a really fun interactive experience to do on a windy day in Santorini. We were there about 90mins, the staff are really knowledgeable and helpful in moving your through the various experiences and the 3D immersive experience is particularly good. I would recommend doing this experience before you go and visit the archeological site at Akrotiri as it really brings to life what life was like 1500-2000 BC.

Alex, Manos, and Barbara were all fantastic. They were super friendly, the horses are well-trained and clearly loved and the views were incredible. They took tons of photos for us so that we could just focus on the horses and the views.

absolutely a great time and a must do in Santorini.....sunset on horses on the beach was everything and more !!!!
