  • This was the best excursion we have ever taken not even taking into account the great value. We got off the ship and found our driver immediately. Unlike most excursions we take he did have extremely limited English but who cares when he takes you in a timely safe manner to the destination and waited until we were done. I do usually worry a little about the ride back if they will be on time. Our party consisted of kids 9 to 20 and the 2 adults. The place was extremely clean for a ranch and the staff very professional. You could tell they were a little new to it but everything went very smoothly. Only the 20 year old in our party had ever ridden before. Did a great job acclimating us to the horses and they did an excellent job keeping the horses in line. Bonus was they had bug spray which we did not think of. It was a little muddy but that was expected. Horses were well mannered and sure footed. It was a gorgeous ride up the hills to the lookout where the ship was in the distance. The front guide did a great job pointing out the local flora and fauna. He was constantly taking video and pictures with his phone that once back at the corral with the free wifi he had downloaded free to my wifes phone. Fresh local fruit and non alcoholic beverages provided. Cheap beer as well thank God because on the boat and port it is expensive. Great staff. Did I mention great staff. No I do not know these people. I would not hesitate recommending them. Wife says we will go again when we go back.
