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!

Truly magical as a ride. We are dealing with a very attentive team. Who are used to having all the levels. It's still a beginner's ride. So if you trot for a few minutes that will be it. But really magnificent between the stop at the sea where the guides take the time to take several photos and videos, and the passages in the narrow places and similar to canyons. Being alone, French and not understanding English very well, that went very well for me. (I still had experience with horses)

It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it! The view and nature throughout the ride is beautiful. The guides make every effort to take many different and beautiful photos of everyone (with the participants' own cell phone or camera). This tour was one of the biggest highlights of our vacation on Santorini.
