We had a great time on the ride. We appreciated being able to do other than just walk the horses. The guide was very good and she was very patient with everyone.
Beyond memorable

The scenic route and history provided on the area while accompanied with the love of my life❤️. The tour showed more than I expected. From what grows on the trees at Hacienda to the lovely farm that was built upon it.
Great Experience!

Best part of my vacation
PAULETTE_K, Apr 2023
The lady who provided the transportation was amazing. She waited for my daughter and I after we ran a little late after the excursion was over. The actual experience was amazing. The tour guide was patient and kind. Very good with the horses. She knows them Well
Viator REFUSED a refund because we were turned away
Jamie_L, Jan 2023
My daughter was bloated due to her period coming. She weighed in just over the 250 limit. We were refused to go on the excursion. Which, I completely understand. However, this was beyond her control. We were told by the barn manager we could get a refund. VIATOR IS REFUSING TO REFUND. We paid $310 for this excursion and we were turned away. I will NEVER use the services of viator again. We did NOTHING wrong.
Great riding experience
Michael_K, Jan 2023
Nice ride with a couple stops for pictures with our phones by the tour guide and to rest the horses a little. Bring shoes that are ok in house muck and mud. Tennis shoes worked well for stirrups and walking. The riding portion was 90 - 120 minutes with a couple stops. Riding is through brush and trees, the guide pointed out interesting plants from the farm. The ride is an easy walk and is good for beginners. During a pause on the field, they let more experienced riders who were interested to trot and to canter/ gallop. Those uncomfortable riding faster waited and rested their horses. There are goats, horses, tortoises, and emus seen on the ride. They farm a variety of crops at the hacienda which were also pointed out on the ride. There is a souvenir shop and a mojito bar for refreshments / shopping after the ride while waiting for the van to pick us up. It was very well organized, minimal waiting to be picked up at hotel (driver was within 10 minutes of expected pick up), and minimal time to be picked up after the ride (within 20 minutes of finishing). Driver checked to ensure he had everyone before leaving so plenty of time for a drink or bite to eat after the ride.
Not stoked
Julie_C, Dec 2022
I was really disappointed with this experience. There were LONG waits before and after the ride so they could push their gift shop on us. The horses were dirty and even had fleas! The only redeeming grace (reason for 2 stars instead of 1) is that Genesis, my guide, was really sweet. I would NOT recommend this tour group for anything!

Great Experience

We were there for our honeymoon. My husband never tried horseback riding and neither have I, so I decided to book it for us. Christian was an amazing tour guide. I would suggest to get a shoes cover and lots of sunblock.
Excellent Tour
Patricia_D, Apr 2022
My leader Nora was excellent. She not only talked about things along the trail but about the island, as well. I learned so much from her.
Sundja_R, Apr 2022
As a complete beginner at horse riding, The tour was very interactive and explained the basics and the horse ride was smooth and gentle.
Great tour
Toni_J, Nov 2021
Great service and Camille was excellent, she gave us a great tour. She was very knowledgeable and so nice I would definitely recommend
Great people and place. Boring ride.
Deborah_P, Nov 2021
There were a lot of great aspects to this experience. The booking was easy. The people were lovely. The horses were well trained. The property was nice — a refreshing change of scenery from downtown San Juan amd the ocean. However I felt that the price was too steep for what you got — a 2 hour walking horseback tour of a grassy plantation. The horses were trained to follow each other and some would stop not respond to rider commands unless the tour guide came back to lead the horse forward.
