Fun excursion, guides were great and taking the horses running in the ocean was amazing. The whole family loved it
Very informative guides that taught us a lot about Jamaica history
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. I was slightly nervous beforehand but I needn't have been as the horses are very gentle and the guides very vigilant and reassuring. We were picked up from our villa in Ocho Rios on time, in a lovely air conditioned coach, and when there were given a thorough safety briefing before being led through the forest to the beach. We were a group of just 6. At the beach there were refreshments and a souvenir stall, where the prices were much better than in town. The staff on the beach were lovely and were happy to take photos of us with our cameras. We then got changed and rode through the waves on the horses, which was a fantastic experience. Again I was nervous, but my guide took the reins for me and I rode just behind him. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip or Viator itself, which was very efficient and good value.
It was fantastic! The horses were awesome, the guides informative and friendly! The photos are SO worth buying!!!! We loved every second!!
Tour was great! Desmond was extremely friendly, informative, helpful and professional. Please send thanks to Desmond.
Riding the horses in the ocean was definitely an amazing experience. It was great to see how much the horses love the water. The horses are very gentle and the guides do a great job! We had a great time.
Had a wonderful time! Riding in the water was the best. The guides did a really good job making you feel comfortable as you rode in and out of the water. They even sell a few things and make you feel it's ok if you don't buy. But if you do they don't rip you off and sell it for a fair price.
This ride was perfect. I was ecstatic that our guide was Donny, who we had Five years ago for our honeymoon. This time we brought our son and soon to be daughter-in-law along as they were to be married a few days later. Donny sang Jamaican honeymoon songs to them just as he had to us five years earlier. He was very knowledgable about the plantation we rode on, it's history and the many different trees and plants growing on the land. We had a great time. Riding through the ocean and feeling the horses swim under us was such a thrill. This is the best horseback ride ever. The Viator price is very good too.
We had so much fun riding the horses. Our guide kept us entertained with his singing and antics. We loved every minute.
Never ridden a horse before. Had a brilliant time. Really good fun. Prepare to get wet !
I really enjoyed it. I was impressed that they use rescue horses and only ride each horse once/day. Not only did we enjoy a long ride, but we got to learn all about Columbus and the Spanish (history).
Staff was excellent and very entertaining throughout the tour. Beautiful views and interesting history of the house on the property. Ride to the ocean was great but ride through the ocean was icing on the cake. Scared of riding a horse No worries because horses are very tame plus the guide will lead your horse with a rope upon request.
Great time! Horses are easy to ride and the guides are a blast. My wife had never been on a horse before and she loved it!
This was the most amazing trip I have done on all of my travels. Our guide was absolutely fantastic, very informative, funny and a pleasure to be with. Best part of the whole trip was riding in the ocean on the beautiful horses. All the horses seemed to be very well behaved. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone, even if you're nervous about horses like I was at first.
A wonderful experience, esp on the beach. There's a lot of history too. For a small fee there's a CD they can make of you on the horses. My children ages 11 and 9 really enjoyed it. We had never ridden a horse but the tour guides make it easy so anyone can ride and enjoy. I highly recommend this tour! Jamaica is beautiful too, great experience there in general.
