This was an experience I will never forget. The historical information provided by the guide was interesting.
The guides were wonderful and patient, the horses were beautiful. Actually riding out into the ocean was the greatest!! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
I have been on this ride several times. It is truly worth it! It is educational, informative and fun. I would recommend this ride to anyone!
This is the ride of a lifetime! Not only did I learn about the history of the first settlement in Jamaica and see where Christopher Columbus first landed in Jamaica, you get to ride your horse in the sea! The well trained horses and helpful guides made this a most memorable experience.
I did this tour with two kids and we all had a great time, the only thing is that I wish the actual ride itself was longer. But the ride and beach time was very fun! The plantains and limeade they provided was delicious!
I had a lot of fun! The guides were very attentive and knowledgeable. It was my first time riding a horse and I was not scared at all.
Had a blast! First time on a horse and had no problem. Will definitely do it again when i come back.
Definitely an enjoyable event. Well organised and fun especially horse riding in the sea! Wear closed in shoes and bring a towel. Not for those that want to gallop though!
The tour guides were very pleasant and helpful. The ride in the sea was very exciting. They did not explain much about the plantation estate as expected, but as I said overall well worth it. The guy who picked us up from the port was very pleasant and informed us of local area and Ocho Rios, after he took us back to town, but he would have taken us on a trip - I assume for a fee.
Activité intéressante si on veut faire de l'équitation, avec un saut dans la mer.
Bons commentaires sur la faune, la flore et l'historique du site de la part du guide tout au long du parcours.
Trop long de la part du site d'équitation pour confirmer notre réservation à Viator, failli le manquer.
This is something you don't get to do everyday in the USA, i got to ride a horse in the sea. The guide was conversational and funny. The horse was easy to work with. Security was present. It takes place on an old sugar cane plantation with is nothing exciting. They take you down to the sea (half way point in the ride). There will be a vendor there that you can buy some water and cakes from (nothing special) You then ride int he sea, get wet and then ride back to the plantation, that is it, end of ride. It was fun to do but nothing i would travel all the way to Jamaica to do. I think the whole island is overrated.
The experience was wonderful beyond my imagination, and I would be giving it 5 stars if it had delivered all it promised. What was missing was the history part (there was no time allowed to look at the exhibitions in the Great House, and the historical narration could only be heard by the first 2 or 3 people in a line of 8 or 9 horses. Still, the actual riding — the sensation of being on a horse in the ocean — was magnificent. The guides were kind and attentive, and the horses as gentle and compliant as can be, even for first-time riders. I loved, loved, loved it and look forward to returning there in the future.
Great experience! We were picked up from our hotel and transported to the horse ride which was a 30 min drive all included in the package.
Make sure to wear jeans or capri pants for this tour. I was in shorts and I had to use my towel to cover a my horse after beach riding, otherwise you can scratch your legs. Riding in the ocean is absolutely fabulous.
It was fun yes. What I expected? No. Was not the trails I pictured. Ride was basically a wide circle on flat land with a ride in the ocean between. At the ocean ride there were shacks set up selling stuff like everywhere else, tho we felt pressured or guilted to buy.
Overall, we had good experience. Everyone was very friendly and worked hard to accommodate our needs/preferences. I honestly didn't feel it wasn't worth the price though. The best part of the experience was the ride through the water, which lasted about about 10-15 min. We had very light refreshments and could hardly hear what the guides were saying.
