We had a wonderful experience! I can highly recommend that tour! We were accompanied and helped out by the kindest tour guides. Those 2 girls took really good care of us and we felt really secure and they made sure that we're having the best time on a horse back. The country side is beautiful and we even rode in tolt which was super cool! This tour is also for absolute beginners who never been on a horse before. What an adventure!
