Tour is far from what was advertised.

My friend was interested in riding a horse on the beach, which is what drew her to this tour. Our guide, Roc arrived at the hotel just before 9, as advertised! He took us to stables that were in awful condition with unhealthy looking horses. My horse, Princess, was very jumpy and made me extremely uncomfortable. Roc said she starts off that way, but would calm down. Eventually, she did a little, but very little! Roc was constantly trying to keep her in line. He even mentioned that she had bitten him on several occasions. On the tour, we did not see wildlife, any white sand beaches, not even one major tourist attraction. Other than Roc seeming knowledgeable, extremely nice, riding horseback on an almost 3 mile (round trip) walk, and him taking many pictures of us, nothing was as advertised.

Dear Karen, Thank you for visiting us and for your review. We are sorry you didn't get to see the wildlife you expected and that you got anxious on the horse. Princesa is really a very nice horse to ride on, once you get pass your fears, which is of course understandable for a novice rider. We will try to be more thorough in our ad, as the major tourist attractions in our ad are indeed those that you visited such as the love cove, wish garden, fisher man's hut, sapphire hill etc. We also offer tours to the light house and alto vista chapel, which I believe you were referring to and got you confused. Unfortunately, this was not what you booked. Regardless, we would like to thank you for your input and hope to welcome you back soon!
Wonderful experience!

This company is amazing. Family owned and operated. The ranch was in the perfect place. We had a wonderful tour guide Rocky. He was a blast to be around but also so knowledgeable. The trip was amazing, the views very gorgeous and the horses were wonderful. My husband has a past in riding and he enjoyed it as did I with not experience. The best thing I did on the Island and we have so many pictures and videos! Thank you so much Rocky for an unbelievable experience.

Amazing Horseback Ride Experience

We had an 11am Horseback tour with 10:45a hotel pickup. ROC was very prompt on picking us up from hotel and seemed to pick me out as I was approaching. I guess because I had on a Ralph Lauren Polo tee with a big horse on the front. ROC took us to the El Paseo Ranch and asked if we had any horseback riding experience as I had 0. ROC introduced us to the horses Shikira and Blanco. I chose Shikira and then ROC helped me get up onto the horse and proceeded to give me brief tutorial on how to to steer the horse and stop the horse. I became more at ease and then we proceeded to ride as ROC told us different entertaining stories. ROC also requested a cellphone to take pictures along the way. ROC took us through Arikok National park taking pictures along the way and then up the the hill and then a big breath taking reveal of the Beach (Hidden Lagoon). Then we proceeded down to the Beach to take more pictures and then back to the Ranch. This was an awesome tour and ROC captured the essence of the tour with the pictures he took. I highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I had the best time with Rock our guide. He was very personable and went above and beyond during the tour. Telling us the history of the island and showing us all the landmarks and taking as many pictures as we wanted. Rock was the best. Highlight of our trip! This is a must do

We recently visited Aruba and took the private horseback ride and island tour. It was awesome! The horses were so gentle and Rock, our guide, was born and raised in Aruba, so he had a lot of knowledge and entertaining facts to share. When we returned to the ranch, we were greeted by an 8 week old baby horse. So precious. We would recommend this trip for all ages. One of the highlights or our trip.

The tour guide was very friendly,the tour was an appropriate length of time,great scenic route to take pictures.Ride to and from the hotel was prompt.I would recommend that bottled water is given to participants.It may be a good idea to bring your own. You'll get thirsty.

The ride was great. We are family of four, picked up by Sue at the cruise ship terminal. (Make sure you walk out to the front of the main gate). From there, she drove us to the ranch to start our horse back ridings and lessons. The tour was private, there was just 4 of us plus Rock, our tour guide. He was very patient and accommodating. He walked along with us all the way while we were riding on the horses. He never rushed and always quick to point out facts and history. He treated us like we were special friends and often offered to take our photo and video. Really made us feel welcomed. It was an excellent tour. Lasted roughly 3 hours from the time Sue picked us up to the time she dropped us off at the terminal. She even offered to drop us off at Eagle Beach! Thank you Sue and Rock.
