Amazing, Even for Beginners!

This was a great experience, and I'm really glad I chose to go at the last minute! It was my first time riding a horse since I was a small child, so the friendly people at the ranch helped me by choosing a calm horse called Galan. He was, like his name means, a true gentleman. The route was beautiful and I discovered a lot about the history and geography, literally off the beaten track. Thank you very much, especially to our amazing guide!

Experience the peaceful countryside of Cusco on horseback

Riding horses in the wide open beautiful countryside was so satisfying. It was so quiet and peaceful. We we’re allowed to cantor and not just walk the horses. Be prepared to also crawl through some tight caves where the Incas hid from the Spanish. Good long ride of about 3 hrs. Highly recommend it!

Wow what an amazing experience. Olgr was so great and knowledgeable! The horses were so sweet and well taken care of and it was just such a great way to see more of the mountain views and explore some caves.

It was the best trail ride I have ever been on. The guide is so knowing of the area and has so much information to share. So incredibly kind as well. Some of the most beautiful views of Cusco. Be prepared for a little bit of hiking, but so worth it.

More than expected

It was more than just a horseback ride. The scenery was beautiful and we got to climb into the moon temple and see the rainbow temple ruin. We even met some local folks along the way who shared their local baked potatoes with us ( I don’t think you can expect that to happen on the trip though. I think we were just lucky to ride past as they were harvesting).

Great experience first time riding a horse . Was looked after start to finish and even managed to get some speed up on the horses at the end of the trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable with fantastic English , it is a family run business and this adds to the authenticity as they know the area and their horses like the back of their hand. Would certainly recommend to all levels of skill , the views were insane and the trip was thoroughly enjoyable for the aforementioned reasons.

If you want to book a horse riding tour then please book it with Holger. It was the best day since we are in Peru. +the horses from Holger are really nice and calm. (Maybe because they are living the best life). We also saw other operators which horses were sattled all day, waiting for tourists (not good for the horses). So pleaseeee book it with Holger. Furthermore I never sat on an horse before and I even managed to do it :) Thank you so much Holger.

Holger was a great guide and the horses were so well behaved. It’s a family run business and Holger’s three sweet dogs were a nice bonus. We got to trot and gallop a little too. There was someone in our group that hadn’t ever been on a horse and he did great. Very fun day to be out in nature with these gorgeous horses. Definitely do this

Great trip to go out and explore the surroundings of Cusco with a knowledgeable and interactive Guide!

We had an amazing experience with our Guide Holger! The horses where great and we did a lot of different activities along the way. We went on a short hike to explore a temple and later even did a short trip caving in the moon temple. As it was my friends birthday I had asked to maybe organize a small surprise and Holger and his team went above and beyond. They had a whole cake and snacks prepared and we had a great time learning about Quechua culture and history. Holger is very knowledgeable, speaks English well and super friendly! Would recommend as a fun activity to learn more about the history of Cusco and have a great time

Amazing ride - horses are treated so well!

This was one of the best things I did during my entire 3 week vacation! Olger (my guide) was amazing! He and his family clearly love animals and have rescue dogs, cats, and horses on their farm. They are so well cared for and treated wonderfully, which is so important as a fellow animal lover. Although Olger does some seldom training with bits, they generally don't use them which is far more kind to the horses - who were impeccably trained. The views were breathtaking and Olger is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable about the surrounding lands and culture with flawless English to share his information. You see the Devil's Balcony and Temple of the moon on top of gorgeous views. He can also accommodate novice through experienced riders so that you are comfortable and happy with your trip! I hugely recommend this tour and it's supporting a locally owned, animal loving family farm!

I had an amazing time with this tour. The guide was super friendly, very knowledgable and spoke perfect English. The ride was about 3/3,5 hours, talking about great value/money! I used to ride and was impressed at how well trained the horses are, making it comfortable for beginners as well. Amazing to see Peru from a different perspective!

This was an amazing tour! It was just me and a friend so it felt very personalized. Our guide gave us history of the Peruvian horses we were riding and took us to two different Incan temples. Would do this again!!
