One of my most amazing excursion experiences ever. We took the option of the Cattle Drive too and we were glad we did. We were picked up by Kathy on time and driven to the ranch in a 4x4. It was great that it is so local to most of the resorts in the Punta Cana/Bavaro area. Journey time was about 20 minutes. Kathy told us a lot about local life on the way. Upon arriving at the ranch we met the days group and were given a tour of the cigar factory shop and even got to roll our own flavoured cigar to keep too. The tour guides were a great laugh!
We were assigned our horses for the day and set out ridding across the Dominican countryside. It was indescribably good! We trekked to another ranch where we zip-lined across rivers and through tree tops. It was another great feature of the day! We then enjoyed a lovely home cooked, plentiful Dominican lunch cooked by the guide Joses wife. Later a handful of us took the horses out guided a herd of cattle from a field through a river and into another paddock to graze. You work as a team to herd them up, its fairly easy. The cattle are slow, but crafty! The guides really look after you. It was exciting, felt safe and facilities and horses were of a top standard and appeared in excellent health. I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat to anyone who enjoys something adventurous and different to the norm. When a definite when not if I go back to the Dominican Republic I will more than likely do this trip again, it was out of this world! This excursion was part of my 5th holiday to the country during the last 5 years. The booking and communications regarding collection from our resort were all great too and went perfectly to plan.

This was a great excursion. The guides on the excursion were very friendly and helpful. It was most definitely the best food we ate on our trip! Jose was a great guide. The horses were well mannered and easy to ride. The cattle drive was a fun little side trip at the end. Cigars at the factory are very tasty and reasonably priced.
What a fun experience! A friend recommended the trip to us and I was so impressed by how organized this trip was. We did SO MUCH in just one day. Our tour guide Jose was so funny and knowledgeable. This was a perfect trip, and at such an affordable rate. Me and our boyfriend enjoyed ourselves from the Cigar Factory to zip lining. And lunch was yummy too. I highly recommend this trip for those looking to get a great bang for your buck!
Fun times, Jose and his guys were attentive and very patient with all of us non-experienced riders. Highly recommended indeed!
This was the best tour that I have ever been on. The tour guide was very informative and allowed us to see the real Dominican Republic. It is a very family oriented tour the all can enjoy.
A great day! We had fun on the horses, especially San Diego. Would definitely recommend. The zip wire was worth a second go too.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guides were so friendly and we felt like part of their family by the end of the day. Every part of the day was entertaining. We loved learning so much about the Dominican culture and would definatly go on this tour again!
The tour was definitely worth the money!!! Our tour guide was Jose and he took care of us the entire trip. He interacted with all of us and made sure we knew everything we were supposed to up front. The horseback riding was very adventurous and the zip lining wasn't as bad (high) as I imagined.
AMAZING all-in-one DAYTRIP!!! Horseback riding was great, food was delicious, it completely exceeded our expectations. Ziplineand its not just 1 and done, you can go a few times! BONUSES cacao demonstration, rolling your own cigars, some great value!! Be prepared to not simply walk along the entire time. If you're looking for a slow easy goingno more than a walking pace horseback tour this is not for you. If you love horses and are ok with going a little faster pace once in awhile, this is amazing! That being said, 80 of the tour had never rode before and everyone was smiling and in one piece when we returned. IT TRULY WAS A BLAST!!! The horses were all extremely well behaved and taken care of. We would have gone twice if we had time during the week. We heard there is another Horseplay ranch in Canada, we might head up that way next.
Recommend for anyone looking to experience a true DR adventure and a change of scenery from the resort. Every penny was worth it!!!
Great tour - started off with a fun ride and tour guide, Jose, who kept us laughing. Good experience rolling cigars, fun on horseback, zip lining, dancing, and enjoying the beautiful sights
This tour was amazing! We had so much fun, and would return in a heartbeat. The staff makes you feel like you are part of their family! Thanks for the memories!
The experience was amazing. From the moment we were picked up from the hotel our guide Jose had us laughing. It was fascinating learning about cigar making, chocolate and coffee production. The horseback riding was beautiful. Riding through the creek was a nice way to cool off. Suggest wearing pants and no flip flops. Best part was the lunch. It was way better than the food on our resort. Jose's wife cooked us an amazing meal. Try this tour out!!
This was the best tour we did for our vacation. Great 3 in 1 deal. Me and my boyfriend had a blast. The staff and owners were all amazing and very professional.
Amazing excursion! This was the best part of our Dominican trip by far! Very fun and you learned a lot about things they do in the DR. The food they served at lunch was incredible! Tour guide José was very funny! Definitely recommend this excursion!
Outstanding outdoor adventure. This will get your feet a little muddy but it's worth it. It's an all day outdoor adventure. Bring some extra water and enjoy this tropical adventure. Jose and his staff are professional and always attending to any customer needs. Delicious Dominican lunch provided.
The description and the reviews aren't lying, I had an amazing time here. Only thing I would change is the price of the photos. There is just no way I would pay 45 for all of the photos taken that day when only a handful of them are me. 5 would be much more reasonable. Otherwise, everything was amazing. I would do it again.
This excursion was excellent!!! We had so much fun doing all of the activities. The cigar and cocoa demonstration were very interesting and interactive. It was my first time ziplining and horseback riding and at no point in time did I feel unsafe. Jose and the guides were all very informative, interactive and entertaining. They were always there to lend a hand and provide you with anything you may need. The ranch is beautiful with lots of animals running around to play with. You can't beat the scenery! The lunch cooked by Jose's wife was delicious, real authentic Dominican food. I would absolutely do this excursion again and again!
What an awesome day! I can't say enough about the entire crew. From the cigar rolling to the horseback riding to the Zip Lines. These guys simply made this a great day. Friendly, fun, and a lot of energy. After doing 3 excursions on my trip just got back yesterday, this was easily the best one by a landslide!
The food at my resort wasn't spectacular, but lunch at HorsePlay was great! One of my best meals on the trip!
I am hard to please and never write reviews, so take it for what its worth. My wife and I loved it.
