An absolute must. We were really looked after - many thanks Giuseppe and team. Fabulous.

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!

Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. We had a very good experience and thought the price was very reasonable for transportation, horseback ride, and lunch. Would definitely recommend to anyone who would like to see an area away from all of the tourists and get some horsey time!

Experience was not what I expected

The advertising of this activity suggests that it is a mount Vesuvius experience but it just entails a horse ride around a plat at the base of the mountain. If your intention is to get experience of riding a horse this will suit but if you intend on experiencing mount Vesuvius you will be disappointed

Hello Conor, Thank you for your feedback. However, I find your review really disheartening. If you read our tour page, it clearly states in the inclusion that you will be riding in the national park of Vesuvius at a height of 500 meters above the sea level, because any higher it's illegal for safety reasons and local laws. We are a young team constantly striving to improve, but I am afraid your request is Impossible. It is a shame that you felt the need to give such a damaging review for this. As I said, it's clearly written in the inclusions. Furthermore, you can see the exact riding path in the picture we post. Moreover, we would have loved if you would have addressed your concern to us during the experience so we could have made it better instead of damaging us in this way. Kind regards Giuseppe

My wife and I had an excellent time horseback riding throughout the hills overlooking Mt. Vesuvius! The food was excellent with some homemade wine to col us off. Thank you once again Guiseppe!
