    We had the most perfect...

    We had the most perfect day on this ride! Our trail instructor spoke excellent English and engaged all of us individually and used our experience riding to pick the perfect horse for each of us. The animals are in excellent condition and are clearly well cared for and healthy. The food at the end of the trail was delicious and the perfect way to end the ride. You couldn't ask for a better experience for the price!

    Charming horse trial through Pompeii vineyards and authentic ranch experience

    A very well spent afternoon in Pompeii’s vineyard trails. After a long and hot day exploring the ruins, this tour was an excellent and chill activity with our friendly and kind guide (sophie) who was also knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the trip. You arrive at an authentic ranch/farm with a warm local welcome, the horses have lots of personality and you have fun during the whole horse ride, it might be for everyone as most of the time spent is spent in brief jungle like terrain but mostly vineyards - which a blessing but at time it can be very distracting for some horses. You do get a glimpse of mount vesuvius(if that is what you are aiming for then limit your expectations). Then we had a lovely local dinner at the ranch which had an excellent atmosphere and view of the city. One thing I would recommend is this tour title be renamed as can be misleading to some expecting a full on Vesuvius experience. Still amazing and charming experience!

    Sofia was an absolutely excellent host. My girlfriend and I had a brilliant day - definitely the highlight of our Italy trip. The horses, the atmosphere at the ranch, the tour through the vinyards with the gorgeous view, everything was great. Couldn't recommend this experience enough!

    An absolutely wonderful day. Take time to relax and enjoy the whole experience. The care and hospitality was fantastic, from start to finish, including the collection/return (Pompeii). We had an opportunity to see the horses in the stables and even have a cuddle with the adorable cats and dogs. Our host and tour guide, Giuseppe, was brilliant, kind, and generous. Even though we had ridden previously, the few "reminders" were extremely useful and helped us a lot. The views of the bay/peninsular and Vesuvius absolutely fabulous, with a relaxing ride through the vineyards - although keeping the horses from munching the plants the only hard part of the trip ! Finished off with a wonderful local bottle of semi-sparkling red wine (!), and very nice food. So good, we didn't even bother eating out that evening. Those idiots who think they will be riding up to the top of Vesuvius need to seek another tour - such as the moon-walk day-trip, scuba dive to the bottom of the Atlantic, or Brain-Surgery for beginers.

    Me and my husband had a wonderful experience ! Giuseppe is very friendly and the ballad is really great, especially the view. The aperitivo was excellent. We wish we had more time to stay in that beautiful ranch.

    Amazing, meaningful, magnificent. This was my first time ever on a horse. Giuseppe was a great tour guide and partner. The stable was excellent. The ride through the farm and vineyard was wonderful. Their is even a dog sanctuary in the fields with about 20+ stray dogs that a woman cares for. The lunch afterwards was delicious and fresh. I am now a horse person because of this and will definitely be riding one again. Thank you Giuseppe!

    We had a genuinely great time with Giuseppe on our ride! I am a horse person but my husband is not so much and he even had the BEST time!! We were taken on a lovely ride through the vineyards with a great view of Mt. Vesuvius. The horses were all very well taken care of and didn't seem bored with life like so many trail horses do so you can tell they do a great job caring for their animals. Afterwards we had a really nice lunch and got to taste the wine they make. Can't recommend this tour enough! Thank you again for the awesome experience!
