    Really fun experience

    January 5, 2023
    Rated 5 out of 5

    My 12 year old goddaughter and I enjoyed this very much. Neither of us had any riding experience but the horses were well behaved and we didn’t have any difficulty. The guide leader was very good and gave us clear instructions. We rode along a dirt road on a quiet part of the beach and it was easy to control the horses when cars passed by. Toward the end, we rode on the beach along the water. All very fun and memorable.

    A Magical Experience

    January 5, 2023
    Rated 5 out of 5

    My husband and I booked this excursion. It was really great. Truly magical. The sun going down as we rode our horses on the beach. The location is just far away enough from where the tourists normally gather (this had been a concern or mine). The instructions were clear and the horses were docile and friendly.

    Not a great experience

    January 5, 2023
    Rated 1 out of 5

    We had the sunset horseback riding on may 30th and are dissatisfied with the experience. It started all very unorganized. When we arrived there were already 3 people waiting for this experience. Nobody had come up to them to greet them or anything. One of the guys had to walk up to a guy to ask him how and what. When we started our horseback riding one of the horses kept pulling down it’s head, later on the ride it sliced my finger open, because there was a piece of metal in in the halter to keep it from falling apart. This horse also wasn’t obedient to any command that was given. So I basically gave it no commands anymore. It was also not having the water so it almost ran into the umbrellas on the beach. I have experience with horseback riding and could not work with this horse. So for someone who has never ridden a horse they might have fallen off. Luckily my friend was on an easy horse since she had never been on a horse before. The 2 guys that joined our ride were almost all the time only speeking Greek to each other and there was little conversation with us. Also did we not see the sun fully set. Which we did expect since it‘s a sunset experience.
