5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Beautiful drive to a beautiful place, everything was as described, nice staff, horses that were healthy and happy, important for the animal lover. I hadn't been on a horse in many years, the guide Lauren was informative and capable. We will do this one again, only the longer trip this time.

FANTASTIC TOUR!!! Our 2-hour tour included two foreigners that had never ridden and others that had ridden horses all their lives. Everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour and fabulous pictures we took. The guide was great with people, horses and very knowledgeable of the farm's history.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

The tour was absolutely breath taking. I loved the horses, the scenery, and the tour guide. He picked fresh guavas for us to eat, was very personable and knowledgeable about the ranch. I learned a number of things about the area that I didn't know before and I live on O'ahu. I'm definitely going back again and recommending it to others.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

It was a little slow but a good adventure anyway with beautiful scenery. The tour guide was nice.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

Great guides on the trail......could have used a little galloping versus walking the entire time........ladies at ticket/registration desk totally confused and unorganized......this left me a little concerned about the ride, but the guides were great and the tour turned out to be fantastic. Also, the male host on the porch was extremely friendly and helpful.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2014

The scenery was very beautiful but the tour could have been 1 hour not 2 hours, too long and uncomfortable on horses. The guide didn't let us stop to take any pictures and she only had tidbits on all the movies that had been filmed there, nothing about the Hawaiian history of the area. WAY, WAY too expensive for what we got, I would not recommend....our group of 6 was disappointed. Don't waste your time.
