Tyler was an awesome guide and didn't mind answering our questions. He showed us several things I had never seen before even as a young child. We will be back and most definitely ask for Tyler

Hi Janet! We are extremely sorry this affected your trip. Unfortunately, not everyone is as honest as you are- so a posted age limit results in dishonest people lying about their child's age. Our age guideline is around 10 years old and is in place...More

Really enjoyed horseback riding on Mackinac Island. The horses were beautiful and they have done the paths so much they seem to know their own way. Would enjoy doing this again.
