We had such a wonderful time on our horseback ride through Kualoa Ranch. Our tour guide was so great. Two hours was just right.

This is not difficult riding as it is all at walking pace - anything faster is banned. The ranch is in attractive settings. It is fun to ride through one of the gates from Jurassic World and we rode through the skeleton graveyard from Kong Skull Island. I did the 2 hour ride. There is a one hour ride but looking at the map of the ranch this would be quite short without much to see. It is worth making a full day of going to the ranch and booking something else which also enables you to sort out transport to and from the ranch. If you are a regular rider, mounting the horse from the right will seem very strange. I am not sure why they do this as everywhere else I have been and in my own riding practice this is always on the left side of the horse.

Excellent excursion! Well worth the money. Beautiful scenery, friendly staff, and calm horses. This is an excellent trip for beginners and children. The views are worth every penny and it doesn't feel like a typical horseback riding tour.

If you love horses, go for this tour. The horses are gentle and easy to ride. The guides were great and took extra care of the novice riders in our group. DO NOT FORGET YOUR CAMERA. The scenery is amazing. We were on the two hour tour and rode to the top of the mountains where you can see everything. There is a choice of adventures at the Kualoa Ranch, so be sure to take advantage of them, ex. ATV rides, zip lines etc. Everyone was having fun and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Thank you VIATOR, we highly recommend booking tours with you. ALOHA
