Amazing Experience
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Loved the unique experience of horse riding with the unbelievable view as a backdrop. The family that organised this for us were so genuine and provided such a great atmosphere for our ride. The cowboys were professional and very patient for our beginner riders. Would recommend to anyone who was thinking of doing this! Thanks so much again!

I am so glad that you enjoyed your ride and that your less experienced riders also had a good time. The Andes on horseback are really something special and give you a good feeling of what we call 'the real Chile'. Thanks for such a nice review.
