Amazing Experience - personal and great views/
Eugene was charming, informative and talkative during our tour and ride to the ranch. He informed me that I may have a private ride due to a family of 6 already on tour. Apache, the tour guide and owner of the ranch took me out for my ride and it was truely amazing. This was the highlight of my trip
This is 100 worth it. The tour guides were wonderful.
It was a great trip. We really enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately, we never received the pictures that were made and that we were told would be sent. We were really looking forward to seeing those.
we can not say enough wonderful things about our time horseback riding at El Rancho - eugene and jesus our guides and now our friends went over and above for us - i highly reccommend them - we loved it - it was the high light f our whole trip - thanks
From being picked up at the hotel, we had great fun. Rodney our guide was friendly and great fun.
At the ranch the horses were ready and the trexk was great. Enjoyed the small group. Thanks and highly recommended
On 7th June my daughter's and wife booked the small horseback ride and island tour in Aruba but through Viator back home despite the fact that none of the group having any previous experience at all with riding horses. We confirmed the booking a couple of days before through the tour rep at our hotel and arranged a 6am pick_up using the paperwork printed prior to travelling here. At 6am transport arrived with driver Rodney an extremely friendly chap and a colourful character to boot. After a 15min ride across the island we arrived at el paseo ranch where we were introduced to Eugene, Rodney s brother and he quickly ran us through basic instructions on how to steer/ride his horses safely. We mounted our chosen steed and then set off on the trail around the island. As novice riders we were relatively slow and my horse'known as captain led the way from the girls. Let me add I am no Clint Eastwood and this was not my comfort zone but with Eugene and brownie the dog for company as well as my intelligent mount I never once felt unsafe or uncomfortable even with one of the stirrups temporarily cutting in to my shin. We walked the horses over the peaks and on a trail across to the other part of the island catching the early morning waves and breezes as they crashed up against the shore. The route led us back to the ranch lasting over an hour whilst Eugene ran along taking photographs. The girls enjoyed their first experience particularly when I fell out the stirrups discounting at the end which was apparently hilarious to them all. We would sincerely recommend this tour no matter how much experience you have horseriding and would like to thank Eugene, brownie,princess,eartquake,blanco and the captain for the experience and Rodney of course. If you are doing a tour on the island this is the one to do and we only wish we had shown more appreciation to Eugene at the time but we are learning fast! Thanks again and we hope to see you again!
My mother and I went on a private ride and it was a beautiful sight of the island and the northeast coast. The ranch personnel were very accommodating as we did not want to the drive tour, since we had our own vehicle. We drove to the ranch and it reminded me of home. I'm from New Mexico, U.S.A and the ranch looked exactly like the southwest, country cowboy culture. The horses were easy to ride on the trail and are a perfect desert horse. I also appreciate the help that was given to my mom to assist her on and off the horse, and when she lost something to the wind, the gentleman Eugene went and retrieved it for her. Easy paced and suited to our amateur riding.
Tour guide so nice. Trail was very lovely
Beautiful ride through Aruba! Very low-key but a great way to see both sides of the island.
