Fantastic day, very relaxing and a beautiful way to see the Andes. Tour guide brilliant and we had a fantastic Chilean lunch washed down with red wine. Neither of us had any experienced horse riding but had no issues going over the mountainous terrain as the horses were very well trained and the guide kept a close eye on us and coached us well on the way up.
This was EXCELLENT. We were in a tour of two other couples--which apparently was one of the largest tours they had done for a while. We had an excellent trail ride through the hills with an incredibly knowledgeable guide Juane who spoke perfect English and was full of really interesting facts about the area. The lunch was simple and delicious, and everything was capped off with a great glass of wine. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour--probably the best part of our 12 day Chile trip.
One slight word of warning, though--the description says no horseback riding experience needed, but I would argue that more experience on horses is better for this. It's a real trail ride, and the horses, and the very nice horses they use DO have personalities as opposed to some other trail rides where they just follow the lead horse at a slow walk. You will trot, and probably have quick bouts of cantering, during this ride. But, that's one of the things we really enjoyed! Excellent tour from start to finish.
Firstly I must say my wife and I are not horse riders, or very young.
When we booked this we somehow imagined it to be a gentle clip clop along the track, looking up at mountains, we were totally wrong. When our Columbian guide from the horse ranch set off down a steep slope into a dried up river bed I almost refused to follow, but he showed me how to do it and we were soon 2000 metres above Santiago enjoying an amazing view. There was just the 2 of us , our guide from the ranch and our very helpful and friendly guide from the tour company. The ride back down was exciting and was followed by a relaxing picnic with time to discuss the experience. We were then taken back to our hotel. Just one note of caution: Because of the morning traffic in Santiago, the company cannot pick you up from a city centre hotel, so we took a taxi to another one, they did take us back to our hotel. an excellent, personal service. I cannot rate this brilliant experience too highly, thank you.
One great riding tour around the mountains of Santiago. The horses were well behaved and the scenery around the course was fantastic. Our tour guide was friendly and explained alot. Definately worth doing the tour lots of fun
The tour guide was great, and the views were fantastic! They did an amazing job making our honeymoon even more special than it already was.
Great experience and we are not accustomed to riding horses. Will definitely recommend it.
