The horseback riding tour was very enjoyable. The horses are very well trained and the tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Overall great experience.
This was such a great excursion! The guides were great and told us many things on our trip from the ranch out to the Natural Poo (which can only accessed by ATV, Jeep or horse) Weather was perfect with party cloudy skies and a very nice breeze especially when we got to the top of the mountain and 84 degrees. We had a chance to swim in the Natural Pool for about 20 minutes but we just took lots of beautiful pictures. The horses are very friendly and easy to control as this was only my second time on a horse. The views on this trip were so awesome. Loved, loved this excursion. Highly recommended!!!
For first time horse back riding, this was a great experience for me and my wife. Thank you Nick and company for a great day! Gene
Had a great time at the ranch. The crew was very helpful and fun. I’ve never rode a horse before but they made it easy and enjoyable.
We booked the afternoon 2.5 hour tour through Viator several months before our trip to Aruba. As instructed, we called the tour operator a day prior to our tour date and they confirmed a hotel pick-up time of 2:45 pm. They picked us up (mostly) on time and it turned out that our group was only eight people in total. To sum this activity up, the journey through Arikok Park, the beach and natural pool was thrilling and scenic. Our small group had a general comfort for horseback riding, so the guide allowed us to trot and gallop at times. This was based on the guide's judgement. In other cases where people are true beginners or otherwise nervous, the guide said that the horses will not do anything beyond walking. For you experienced horseback riders, the only way to guarantee speed is to book a private tour. The ranch staff are lovely and the horses are generally obedient. If you're looking to explore Aruba in a different way, you should book this tour!
We took our 2 grandsons, ages 9 and 5 on this tour and we loved it! The guides were so awesome!
On the first part of the ride it was so fun seeing how many different cactus and how rugged the island is, then when we arrived at the sand and ocean it was breathtaking! My husband got in the natural pool and had a lot of fun getting nailed by the waves! Our 5 year old grandson fell asleep on the way back and the guide actually carried him down the hill, it was so appreciated! We would definitely recommend this tour :)
I really can't say enough about this great trip. What made it so special were our guides. They made you feel secure and easy. Seeing all the different terrain, mountain, desert and the pool gave you more of an island experience and allows you to see an area that is so beautiful. Great job guys.
This horseback riding tour was the most beautiful, fun and best part of our vacation. The crew were absolutely awesome. It was my sons first experience on a horse and he loved every bit of it, he wanted to take the horse home. I cant stress enough about the professional patient guides, they made our trip worth while.
Horseback riding to the Natural Pool was awesome! Guides picked us up and dropped us at hotel before and after tour, were courteous, friendly, informative. We had a lovely day.
It was a great experience and the instructors were very nice. I would recommend this excursion and the staff seems to be a family business.
