We visited Spicelands on a recent cruise to Bermuda. Due to weather our itinerary was changed which affected our visit. The staff at Spicelands bent over backwards to accommodate us. When we arrived we were treated like royalty. Our guide was friendly, personable, and very informative. The horses are well trained and easy to ride. The tour was beautiful with... More

We attempted to do the afternoon ride, however never even had a a chance to make it. We were scheduled for 3 pm and after being misguided by google maps we called at 2:50 and were informed that we were "late" and would be ineligible to make the ride. No where in the reservation did it state that we were... More

This was the highlight of my trip to Bermuda! The guide was so much fun and the horses were all trained very well. I was a first time rider so was very excited with how smooth it all was! Highly recommend for everyone! Plus there are some amazing views :)

First off, the instructor was wonderful as were the horses. Never having ridden a horse, which the instructor knew, I was matched up with a lovely horse named 'Gypsy' who was calm, caring and knew the path perfectly. As others have described, the walk took you along lovely trails, across a street (cars stopped) and then to a magnificent beach... More

We booked this excursion through Norwegian cruise line. We were picked up right on the dock. Brendan was our guide and he was wonderful. We were a group of four, from no experience to experienced riders. He made us all very comfortable. The ride to the beach was fun and then to come out to the most beautiful beach was... More

Our trail guide, Brendan, was amazing! He has such an awesome and outgoing personality and continued to entertain us throughout the ride. Although we would have liked to tour the beaches or go into the water with the horses - the tour itself was beautiful and lots of fun for my daughter and I.

Beautiful ride though the Bermuda backcountry down to the pink beaches at Horseshoe bay and the surrounding areas to see the sunrise. Our guide, Brendan, was excellent and very helpful with his horsemanship instructions. My riding experience was very limited, while my wife is a very experienced rider and both of us were extremely satisfied with our ride. Overall a... More

Recently rode at Spicelands while on a cruise with my partner . We booked it through Norwegian Cruise Line. Tyler was our guide, nice and friendly guy who obviously loved horses.

We had a wonderful experience at Spicelands. We arrived via cruise ship but booked it ourselves. The staff was responsive and helpful with booking and they were also willing to help arrange a taxi if we needed help (we didn't). It ended up being a private ride, with just my party. Brendan was our guide and he was wonderful. He... More
