I did the one hour trek with my family recently and it was fantastic. I was nervous at the start but the awesome guides darren and Lorraine put me at ease and the horses were so calm and well trained. Definitely something I'll do again.

I was totally novice but my husband was not. The girls are all so kind and friendly. Of course the scenery cannot be compared. I would highly recommend.
