Nice people, but not what advertised

I love meeting nice people - which these people are. However, this is not a tour by any stretch of the imagination. I feel compelled so others do not make same mistake. Thought... read more

I love meeting nice people - which these people are. However, this is not a tour by any stretch of the imagination. I feel compelled so others do not make same mistake. Thought it would be great for a first date based on ads that it was romantic and a great way to be educated on wine process. I liked... More

There was a great groupon for 90 min horseback riding and wine tasting, so my girlfriend bought it for my birthday! I've always wanted to ride horse's through the wine vinegar and sip on some wine after. We arrived a little late but they still got us on some horses. Our tour guide Michelle, was wonderful! She taught us the... More

the horses were well cared for and our guide Kylie very pleasant. However the ride was just on dirt road around the vineyard. Pretty boring.

I purchased this through Groupon.com. From the time we got there,it was a great experience. The lady doing the paperwork was friendly and since we filled the paperwork out before we went,not much to do til the ride.They match you up very well with a horse that is suitable for your size and experience.My horse was Izzy and she was...

The ride wasn't much. A 90 minute trip around the WC property, some thru the vineyard, and around the homestead. The horses were great. More "tour" type info about growing grapes and making wine would be added value.

Our guide and the rest of the staff were nice and knowledgeable. They gave us some tips about the horses (as each one seemed to be unique). One of the horses was a little snippy and I'm not sure he was the best choice for someone with limited experience. The vineyards were beautiful. Be aware that it is really dusty... More

I am a beginner and my husband is advanced. he would have preferred more freedom whereas I would have preferred less. The horses are beautiful and well behaved. My horse, Carter, was amazing! He listened and knew the trail (just liked to eat a lot...and I allowed it too much, I guess). I would have liked it more if the... More

This is ridiculous! Terrible horse ride. We literally did circles around a property. Laughable. Absolutely no information provided about the geography, terrain or wineries in the area. Point out some highlights and the circles might have at least been amusing. Instead you have an entire company more obsessed with horses than entertaining. Avoid!!!!!!

My husband and I did this horseback ride and everything about our experience was wonderful. Our horses seemed well kept,(most are rescues) they were completely manageable and easy to ride, and our guide was very informative! It seems in reading the bad experiences it mostly had to do with the "Groupon experience" and not so much about the actual horseback... More

Well, I read many reviews here before starting and am amazed that some folks did not like this. Our group was made up of 4 riders, with varying experience down to "None at all". When we arrived our horses were saddled and ready to go and the check-in process was easy. Our guide was a really nice young girl (Bailey)... More
