Even though you do not visit the Saqsayhuaman ruins, you are in Saqsayhuaman park and riding free with the wind in your hair overlooking stunning views. I really enjoyed this tour. We visited a small ruin called the Temple of the Moon and Spirit Mountain. My guide Grimaldo was great! There was only one other girl on my tour so instead of being on a tourist tour it really felt like I was just hanging out with friends.
Gabriel was an AMAZING guide! He was super chill, spoke english very well and had much knowledge of the region. I've also never ridden such a well behaved horse. And the temple of the moon was not very touristy - seemed off the beaten path, My only piece of advice is to not wear super tight jeans! I split mine straight down the bum the first time I got on my horse! LOL
They have horses for non and experienced horse riders. Friendly staff. Views are breathtaking we enjoyed it a lot well recommended.
I am actually going on trip advisor for Gabriela Ranch. We LOVED it. He was fun chill, knowledgeable, kept us safe, we galloped, has beautiful horses.... The views were sooo amazing. Everything included in the one price. I recommend Valencia travel and Viator to everyone visiting Cusco. Seriously.
This was a fun experience of horseback riding, but be warned it is not exactly as advertised. You only get to go to and explore the Temple of the Moon. The main ruins you'd want to see in the area, Sacsayhuaman, you just drive by and don't ride or walk through. Still, it is a fun experience to ride around the mountains with beautiful views. I'd recommend it for those interested in seeing the countryside, but if your purpose is to visit the ruins, this is not the tour for you.
Our guide offered to take us to the Factory afterwards, which I would recommend. This is a store selling all alpaca items, and they do an interesting demonstration to help you differentiate between real and fake alpaca fur. Just don't buy here, because they will tell you it's cheaper than anywhere else in Cusco, but it is about 5x as expensive as buying authentic stuff from one of the local stands near the main plaza. This is really useful for learning to differentiate so you can buy authentic stuff elsewhere.
