I’m glad I did arrange this sunset horseback riding program into our trip here. It’s interesting and memorable. Cemal cares so much about your safety!

Must try horse safari instead of atv, these horses are easy to handle. Mr Cemal knows environment very well.

Simply good ride with a professional. We enjoyed highlights of Cappadocia and it was simply amazing.
Since the season was low,we were guided some professionals. Great experience.

Cemal's was brilliant. After a beautiful walk from Ortahisar centre and down the hill we came to Cemal's.

The ride was beautiful and absolutely silent, not a person or car in sight, just the gorgeous Cappadocia countryside.

Lunch back at the ranch was wonderful, a true Turkish quick lunch with Chai and one of the most beautiful views you will ever dine to.

Beautiful scenic horserides for a really fair price. Very nice family business. My girlfriend finally managed to sit in a saddle after a very long fear of horses because of a bad fall.
