The guides (Jeanette and Danny) were friendly and attentive. The experience was memorable. The views were incredible. My kids can't stop talking about it. We have awesome pictures and amazing memories. Definitely a must do attraction if visiting the area.

We had a great time overall. The pick up at the hotel, the instructions before the tour, the guides, the horses, the views, the beach, was all flawless. The only thing I wasn't too crazy about is the surprise offering of your pictures that someone else takes professionally and at cost. Would have been nice to know that before we... More

If you plan on going horseback riding in Aruba you have to go to the Gold Mine Ranch! I have ridden horses since I was 7 and have been on many tours and these guys go above and beyond. My boyfriend and I decided to do a private tour and he has never been on a horse before. They matched... More

Picked us up in a timely manner, and kept us entertained throughout the duration of the car ride to the ranch. Once there, you are greeted by many of the staff and tour guides, who were all very friendly. For all of us being first timers on a horse, the guides did a very good job explaining how to ride...

We brought a family member back to Aruba and did a private tour with Jeanette again. As always, she made the tour fun and informative. Jeanette is so friendly, funny and just a great people person. We will return :)

This was wonderful. Daniel was our main guide and he did a lovely job of separating my mom (very experienced horsewoman) and myself (managed not to fall off) away from those who are less experienced for frequent trots, canters and gallops. The horses are great, the guides are great and the scenery - undeveloped coastline, crashing waves, blue, blue, blue... More

Best Horsebacking Riding Experience! What a memorable and fun experience! We were picked up at our hotel on time by their friendly and informative employee, Chanette. We were lucky enough to also have her as our riding tour guide. I was very impressed with her teaching ability, especially for beginner riders. She cares about the rider's concerns, and picks just...

Had a fantastic time on this trip. We got to do some trail riding, ride on the beach and some galloping. We had 2 fantastic guides that would occasional divide the group into 2 - one group that wanted to gallop and another that just wanted to walk. Had a number of experienced riders in our group and they said... More
