My husband and I went on an hour-long horseback riding excursion at Il Vecchio Maneggio and greatly enjoyed it. Our guide was calm and friendly, and riding on horseback through the Tuscan countryside is an almost surreal experience. Beautiful!

Their horseback riding sounded wonderful, but turned into simply a walk through beautiful vineyards. Would have liked to explore more and have a faster pace. Our guide only spoke italian and was not very personable.
