We wanted to do something different while in Crete, apart from just beaches and pool, and also something in the evening when the sun wasn't so hot (there was a bit of a heatwave when we were there). This trip was perfect - George (so friendly and funny and good with the kids) picked us up at 5:45 and drove us to the farm where we met up with other groups from Eddie's bus. Well- Eddie is crazy funny, he really put everyone at ease with his humour. My 2 kids and partner and I had never been on a horse before and that really did not matter because they really made us all feel at ease and gave us good instructions. A guide stayed with my kids the whole time up the mountains. We stopped for a rest and photos in the Cretan mountain side which had lovely views. Back to the farm for dinner which was lovely and they weren't happy until everyone's plate was full and glasses were full of wine. This was the best part of our holiday and would really recommend it!!
“OMG the most amazing moments of our lives”
We had such an amazing time at the horse riding. It will be one of our best memories. The laughs, fun, sunset, scenery, food and company. You gave us great confidence - especially when one of us had not ridden a horse before. Your hospitality was impeccable. Your energy was vibrant and we all communicated even though from very different places with different languages. If anyone has a chance to do this trip please go. The best time ever! Thanku Eddie and Zohaib.
“What an excellent trip!”
We took this trip as a couple and we could not have had a nicer day. The total trip takes a little over 2h and takes you up a hill and back down with a little refreshment on top. I am an experienced rider but also for the very beginners the horses were well trained so everyone enjoyed their trip. What made this trip so memorable were the two crazy hosts which made a riding trip into a real fun happening. After the riding there is a lunch which tasted excellent and even some desert. The transport to and from the hotel/city is also included. I booked this trip via contacting them directly by mail and I got an answer very quickly and they always have enough spots for everyone. So I can clearly recommend this trip a lot.
