Vicky_S, May 2023
We enjoyed the outing, we learned a lot of the history of how the horses came to NC, and saw many of the horses on the tour.
Kelsea_W, May 2023
It was very bumpy but worth it to see the horses. My partner had to ride in the front because there wasn’t enough room in the back for him but he was out of the elements so we didn’t mind too much. I would not have brought younger children but my 10 year olds had fun
Susan_g, May 2023
the experience was great, got to see way more horses then the guide expected. The guide had alot of knowledge on the area. Would do it again!!
Michelle_K, May 2023
We checked in at 2:45. We were told to have a seat by the bathrooms/gate area. We did and sat there until 3:37. I went to see what was going on, I found that the truck was loaded and the tour guide giving his speech. We walked up and asked if this was ours and he said yes, we called out names. I said we’ve been sitting where we were told to sit for almost an hour. In which I received a snarky remark from the tour guide, “well it’s weird everyone else heard it”. Then to be asked if someone would volunteer to sit in the truck. Meaning to me, it was overbooked. Weather conditions were miserable, driving in the back of a truck. Horses we’re beautiful, but to get to them, it was down right miserable!
Loretta_L, May 2023
As you can see in picture the weather was very windy but that didn’t stop the horses from coming out.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Thank you we will come back again
Deborah_W, May 2023

Jennie_H, May 2023
We had a great time. Definitely bumpy but it was fun. I would definitely recommend this experience to others thinking about it.
4 wheeling + beach + wild horses = tons of fun
Alecia_G, May 2023
Rocking and rolling at Corolla beaches was a blast! Add wild horses (Spanish Mustangs) made this event a memorable event with friends!
Exhilarating Outer Bank seashore drive.
Patrick_E, May 2023
The nine mile ride along the Outer Bank seashore on the sandy beach was exhilarating and surprising smooth. The roads through the sand dunes to access the private property where we saw the horses were pretty bumpy. The tour was operated in a safe manner.
Worth the money
Joe_H, May 2023
We saw at least 25 wild horses on our tour It was a little cold in the back of truck so the guide gave us a blanket which really helped
Debbie_C, May 2023
The entire trip was wonderful. Our tour guide was great in telling us all about the horses and the history of the area.
Monica_J, May 2023
Our tour guide was an interesting and informative person with an infectious personality. We thoroughly enjoyed the Jeep ride and pony sightings.
Melissa_N, May 2023
The Wild Horses were amazing. Our tour guide was very knowledge. The history of the horses and their surroundings was very interesting. A beautiful place.
Linda_W, May 2023
Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide gave a good combination of history of the area and the horses.
Mustangs peaceful among so many sightseers
Frances_g, May 2023
Comfortable, relaxing ride with a great guide who provided a lot of interesting information and took us to a variety of locations where we saw 34 or more wild mustangs in their environment even to the extent of them grazing undeterred by the volume of tourists and quite at home among the homes of residents who live there on the Outer Banks. I am certainly glad I took the opportunity to avail myself of this wonderful experience. This has nothing to do with your tours but I wish one could see the pictures of ponies that Ocracoke has up for adoption and we could select the specific one we want to adopt. Thank You for a great day!!

Terri_H, May 2023
This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and the horses. Thank you
Brenda_F, May 2023
This was a dream come true-seeing the wild horses in the Outer Banks, NC. I had read all the Margaret Henry books about horses when I was in 3rd-5th grades and always wanted to visit the place where the wild horses roam. This trip checked off a dream from my bucket list. With a herd of about 100 horses in Corolla, we saw at least 30 horses on our 2-hour ride. One was a day old foal named Drake.
Bucket list item
Stephanie_G, May 2023
This was a bucket list item for me. And to be able to get off the truck and get pictures was so great. We absolutely loved this and will definitely do it again.
Can't wait to come back
Bonnie_K, May 2023
What a great experience! We saw at least 50 horses. Driving down the beach is an experience in itself, let alone adding horses into the mix. Well worth the $$
Meredith_W, May 2023
Guide was very knowledgeable and you can tell he cares for the horses! We had a great time and got to take some incredible photos. Enough people to be worth it but not too crowded (plus enough space to take photos). Easy to register. We feel like the money spent on the experience was not wasted!
Great tour! Thoroughly enjoyed!
WilliamF_S, May 2023
Had a great time seeing areas of the north shore and the wild horses that we would never have seen otherwise. Paul was a great guide. Thoroughly enjoyed!
Bucket List checked!
Donna_G, May 2023
Our guide Paul was very knowledgeable of the area and has a wonderful story to tell. The area was like nothing else you will ever experience! Loved every minute of it!
Seeing wild horses
janet_j, May 2023
She did her best to show us the horses. And got us back sagely when the storm came on, I'd go back again
Carla was an indy driver, it was great!
