My daughters 11 and 6 years old wanted to horse back ride and this was the only one available last minute. The owner told me my 6 year old daughter could ride her own horse over the phone. I was nervous but said okay. That itself should have been a red flag to me. Our tour guide didn't speak English... More

Just got back from our private sunrise horse back riding (Paseo Ranch). Got up early for our 6:15AM pick up from our Marriott hotel. Pick up was right on time and about a 10 minute ride we were at the farm. With the rooster crowing in the back yard, we were set up with our horses. Not experienced riders (just... More

This tour was booked through American Express Concierge but I did not do my homework. They canceled our first date and did not call my contact number but rather left a message at the hotel so when we packed up for the day and were getting ready to go surprise no tour. We rescheduled for a couple of days later... More

Took the 2 hour 9am horseback riding tour. The tour itself was enjoyable as the area is beautiful and we went by the ocean, but there were some issues: - There were lots of bugs the entire 2 hours including mosquitoes all over the place, and nothing was said about this in advance. As there is currently Zika in Aruba,... More

We were very disappointed by this tour operator. We paid to be by ourselves and while they took a lot of pictures and promised them to us, they refused to to follow through and send the pictures. We really wanted those as a memento of our 30th anniversary. Use these guys if you want but don't expect them to follow... More
