We booked this excursion through Norwegian cruise line. We were picked up right on the dock. Brendan was our guide and he was wonderful. We were a group of four, from no experience to experienced riders. He made us all very comfortable. The ride to the beach was fun and then to come out to the most beautiful beach was... More

Our trail guide, Brendan, was amazing! He has such an awesome and outgoing personality and continued to entertain us throughout the ride. Although we would have liked to tour the beaches or go into the water with the horses - the tour itself was beautiful and lots of fun for my daughter and I.

Beautiful ride though the Bermuda backcountry down to the pink beaches at Horseshoe bay and the surrounding areas to see the sunrise. Our guide, Brendan, was excellent and very helpful with his horsemanship instructions. My riding experience was very limited, while my wife is a very experienced rider and both of us were extremely satisfied with our ride. Overall a... More

Recently rode at Spicelands while on a cruise with my partner . We booked it through Norwegian Cruise Line. Tyler was our guide, nice and friendly guy who obviously loved horses. The horses were well looked after. I never ridden a horse in my life and they made me feel relaxed and comfortable. The ride was varied, going though grassy... More

We had a wonderful experience at Spicelands. We arrived via cruise ship but booked it ourselves. The staff was responsive and helpful with booking and they were also willing to help arrange a taxi if we needed help (we didn't). It ended up being a private ride, with just my party. Brendan was our guide and he was wonderful. He... More

Just recently rode at Spicelands while on our cruise to Bermuda. I am an equestrian and have grown up around horses all my life. Theses horses are well taken care of however, the stalls and "office" are absolutely filthy and do not make a good first impression considering those are the first things you see. The barn definitely needs a... More

Hello! Thank you for your review, your comments have been noted and we will make every effort to make improvements. The office as you noted does not make a great first impression which is why we have recently made changes, it was painted last week & we are in the process of reorganizing - so my apologies for that.

I took a cruise to Bermuda with my friend, having booked the Spicelands ride in advance through Norwegian Cruise Line. Taxi from the Royal Naval Dockyard. I had never ridden a horse before, but my tour guide Brendan was helpful and funny, and my horse Mystic was so sweet. We rode along the pink sands of Horseshoe Bay Beach, and... More

The horses behaved extremely well! The trails to the beach were great! Our trail guide, Brendan Smith, was fantastic!! He informed us about so much of Berumda and how the people live. I would 120% go back again!

First off I want to say that Brendan did an excellent job teaching me and my girlfriend the skills needed to ride a horse. This was my first time on a horse so I was expecting it to be a wild ride but turned out to be the total opposite. When I come back to Bermuda I will definitely be... More

While on our honeymoon, my wife and I decided to go horseback riding and we had an awful experience. We are the type who enjoy doing activities and are pretty laid back, so for me to spend the time to write a review says a lot about the poor management and ownership. First, we were paired with our horses and... More
