Probably best horse tour outfit on beach. Knowledgeable with great beach ecology information enhancing info about horses. This company also follows rules and respects property of local residents. Ask for Brendan, especially if you have young children or seniors. He is very careful, smart and fun. Don't forget all the drivers work on tips

They would not let me Segway because of my age. In my other Segway experiences I have never seen an upper age requirement. I have always had to sign a waiver to exempt the companies from any insurance liability issues.

OuterBanksTours, Manager at Back Country Safari Tours, responded to this review

First and foremost, I would like to apologize. I'm not sure with whom you spoke, and while we do have a screening process for age and weight restrictions that is imposed by our insurance company due to the nature of where we operate the Segway tours which in one case is completely off road on sand trails and other reasons,...

Smaller trucks means a more personal experience. They are respectful to locals and tourists alike. They truly care about the well being of the wild horses and share with you their knowledge of history and current status.

History of location along with history of horses a bonus. Everyone must take this tour. We saw at least 10 horses as we drove. The guides answered all our questions and were very friendly.

Having recently moved to OBX, my wife wanted to take wild horse tour as part of her birthday experience. Terry, our guide was great! Informative, entertaining, teaching with passion concerning the area and ecosystem. We even watched the drama of a group of males attempted to cull females from two "harems" of wild horses. Then to top off the afternoon,... More

My family of four took the historic Corolla segway tour in November. We had a terrific time, every minute was great. I had never been on a segway before, but I was amazed at how quickly Terry had me up and running - just a few minutes and I was already comfortable. It's very easy. The tour was a good... More

I reviewed Back Country Safari Tours last year, giving them 5 stars. This year's experience, however, was even better! The first day, my husband and 15 year-old did the historic Segway tour. Terry expertly taught them how to use the Segways, and off they went. They both enjoyed the tour a great deal. For those new to Segways, I would... More

Have been coming to the OBX for years (decades) and never been up to see the wild horses. This tour was great - Terry, our guide, was very knowledgeable of both the area, the wildlife and the horses. And yes, we found them! Highly recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyed our adventure with Steve. As we were the only 2 people on board the tour, we felt like VIPs. Steve was very personable and engaging, and we learned so much, not just about the wild horses, but also the history and ecosystem of the Outer Banks. You can tell Steve is passionate about what he does. His love... More

We had a great time with Devon. We saw twenty five to thirty horses and came back with lots of pictures, souvenirs and memories!
