Great tour guides.

First the tour guides were awesome. They def made me feel safe and secure while riding Rosa (Horse). Being as though this was my first experience riding horses I think it went pretty good. Although it was very cool, I doubt I’ll ever do it again lol just not my thing. I recommend everyone giving it a try to discover if it’s your thing or not.

This tour was so awesome. We had such an amazing time learning about the wildlife, plants and trees in Costa Rica. The guide was informative and helpful. Totally worth every penny. The horses were sweet and helped with my first time anxiety. I would for sure do this again.

Went on this tour with three of my friends when on vacation in costa rica and had an amazing time. Two of us were beginners, and our guide was patient, informative, and really fun. The stop at the waterfall was lovely. And after the tour they give you fresh pineapple and refreshments which was much needed after such an eventful couple hours!

The tour was awesome! It was 7 females from Washington, D.C. We were on vacation and celebrating my daughter's 29th birthday. Our tour leaders were the best!!! The best part of our tour was the ranch dog we named

The ranch was beautifully kept. Staff was excellent. Our only complaint would be the horses' condition. We own horses and know what healthy horses looks like. These horses were underfed. The horses were very well mannered, but they offered no rest interval for the horses in between group trails .

Excellent Tour, on time pick up, great ride to the water fall, fast ride if everyone agrees to run the horses. Nice lunch afterwards with round trip to Hotel. Definitely something you want to do in CR.

This tour was amazing! We actually did the waterfall repel as well. The guide Jose was knowledgeable and all the staff was friendly and helpful . We got a chance to meet the owner of the Ranch, Greg and he was very personable and down to earth. Amazing experience and I would love to do it again.
