Absolutely great experience! Got the full 2 hours of riding, and the gentlemen there are truly amazing.
However, the schedule is wrong: the 7:30 AM which we picked hoping for an early morning ride in cooler temperatures got us picked up at 8:30 AM and riding all the way to noon.
Enjoyed this very much. It was sad to see the beach so littered though. Everything else was amazing scenery.
I think I'm a expert rider now. The little boy is so precious that rides out with the tour. There is nothing like this sight, beautiful.
This was about 40 minutes from our hotel, but worth the drive. The ranch stables about one hundred horses and accomodates everyone. There was little instructions on how to handle the horse, but didn't encounter any issues. The ride took you to secluded beaches and only encountered a few local fishhermen. The view was amazing. Makesure to bring your own camera for pictures as the pictures were over fifty dollars if you want to purchase.
The best excursion during my visit to Punta Cana! Up until this point, I was so terrified of horses. Junior, our guide, went out of his way to make me feel comfortable with my horse. He constantly checked up on how I was doing and made sure I was still having fun. By the end of the day, I felt like a pro even though I'm not even close! Such a great price for the amount of time you get with your horse also. Gracias Junior por ayudarme ese dia. Me diverti mucho!
Great tour, my son and Wife loved the trip. Oscar the tour guide was great and really went out of his way to make it in enjoyable for my Son.
Our best excursion this trip!! The entire staff at the ranch were FANTASTIC!!! The made you feel like family. My daughter use to ride horses years ago and was loving it. One of the tour guides held her back while the rest of the group went ahead. He then allowed her to run the horse on the beach!! This was the high light of her entire trip. I highly recommend this excursion. Will do this again.
Excellent trip. Just as described. Great staff, horses, beautiful stretch of beach. These horses really move when prompted, yet always in control.
We had a fantastic experience. This was everything I was hoping for and more.
I was an experienced rider and my boyfriend had never been on a horse before.
I love that we were able to gallop as well as ride in the water.
Our guides were incredibly fun and energetic.
I highly recommend this excursion.
This excursion is great!! The tour guides are very helpful and extremely nice. Definitely worth the money. They have picture discs they sell at the end of the entire excursion, I was pleasantly surprised at amount of photos they took and the quality of the pics.
This tour was great! I loved it Daniel was great it was my first time on a horse and I was scared at first, he took his time and made it easy for me to warm-up! I will be coming back when I visit punta Cana again. I love the beach, I love the ride and scenery is very beautiful. Thank you.
It was great the guides were friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride along the beach
It really was a great tour! The ride to the ranch took about an hour between picking up other guests and driving to the ranch. As others have stated it's in what I would call a safari vehicle but the weather was beautiful and we found it perfectly comfortable! The ranch was really cute, had puppies, iguanas, and other animals wandering around. Seemed clean and well-kept. They have a small souvenir shop you can browse before and after your ride. They provide helmets and basic instruction and then help get everyone saddled up and then off you go! We did the two hour tour and honestly that was probably more than enough for me. There was always a guide in front, to the side, and behind us. If you're not used to riding a horse or super comfortable with animals it can be a little scary! But we found it to be overall very pleasant. The beaches we rode on were GORGEOUS and undisturbed. There was opportunities to stop and take photos. We did quite a bit of galloping lol. My entire body was sore the next day so keep that in mind when booking. Overall I'm glad to say I have done it. The staff was really all around great, funny, and very informative about any questions we had. They do take pictures throughout and you'll have an opportunity to purchase them after. We got the bottle of rum with our picture on it. :-
Our guides were friendly and helpful. The ride route was beautiful. And as an experienced rider I was allowed to actually race along the beach with one of the guides and another rider who was more experienced. It was a wonderful experience and I would love to do it again my next visit.
Had a wonderful time loved riding on the beach. Tour guides were great fun.
Great activity, very reasonably priced. Guides know what they are doing. Horses were in good condition (compared to our last trip). seems like all were happy - people who wanted to ride slower and the ones who wanted to go fast. Would def recommend.
P.S. on the Viator part - seems redundant to request a pickup 24hrs before, i specified the date of the activity and the resort i am staying at when I purchased this activity, why do i need to call you to request pickup??? (almost missed my trip because did not read the fine print about this redundancy) - 5 starst for the stables - 3 stars for Viator
