No show for the horse riding
Nobody turned up. When we tried to call the number didn't work. I tried 4 other numbers I found on the Internet for the company "living it" and still nothing. A few angry emails and voicemail later I have managed to get a refund via the operator but I sat around for an hour waiting for them to turn up. Bad service - use a telephone number that works!

Tour guide was wonderful and easy to work with. Our riding guide was great as well. The riding and the scenery (a lot of long distance views at elevation, including of the Mediterranean) was fantastic. Equestrian center was super and the horses in great shape and well cared for.

Beautiful scenery and lovely experience
Together with friends we experienced the horseback tour in Barcelona. I am a more experienced rider but my friends weren’t so this was completely new to them.

The information beforehand was very clear. The people from LivingIt were very kind and every bit of information I needed was given by them. The tour itself was done by Jordi. He was very kind, happy and had so much knowledge of Barcelona so plenty of talk. The people from the horse riding farm were also very lovely and patient with us. They explained everything we had to do and made sure to calm the nerves. The tour went through this amazing national park with so much to see. Really worth your money!

I would definitely recommend this tour if you just want something else than the busy city Barcelona and experience some local action.

Happy to choose that event during our stay in Barcelona
Aug 2019 • Family
Really friendly and helpful staff, amazing landscape, friendly horses, and the best for a couple of a “mother-first-time-rider and daughter-used-to”. We were told everything how to handle, starting with making friends to the horses. It was my first time and I was a bit afraid... but lost the fear after a quarter, when I cleaned and prepared the horse for riding. My daughter used to ride in her early childhood and she was really happy to do trap and Galopp too. We rebuilt our promise: let’s go riding a next time and maybe more regularly thanks to this wonderful experience!

Relaxing ride
This trip was a nice combination of sightseeing and riding. However if you are an experienced rider be advised it is walking only. The guide and horses are quarter horses very calm and easy to ride.

Disappointed, customer service was terrible
Dec 2018 • Family
My family was disappointed, this was a terrible tour. The customer service provided by the guides was awful. Our driver Marc was 20 minutes late to our meeting point. He did not tell us how long the drive would be, the name of the ranch, or anything about the tour. Our guide Montse helped us get the horses ready and spent time in the arena with us, while we practiced on the horses. Montse was our guide during the horseback ride through the nature park. Montse did not speak to us, other than telling us to kick the horses to go faster. Montse spent the entire ride talking to a friend of hers, that joined us on the ride. About half way through the ride, I asked to stop. I asked Montse why she wasn't talking to us and explaining about the nature park. Her response was, I'm not from here and don't know this area. I said, we are the paying customers, you should be talking to us, not your friend. She did not care, we continued on with the ride, and Montse continued talking to her friend, ignoring us. Montse did not have us stop to enjoy any views or take pictures. Montse was a terrible guide. The tour was supposed to include a souvenir photo, which we did not get a family photo. The lunch was a small sandwich, green olives, and water. We paid $114.66 per person in US dollars. The tour was a waste of money and our vacation time.

Thank you for your feedback. For us, your comments are very important to continue improving our service. We regret that the experience was not up to your expectations and we apologize for it. In regular tours, it is possible that other riders are participating. I reccommend that experienced riders take a private tour instead of an open group one. Likewise, I apologize for the delay; Marc emailed you before the tour at the same time he was making efforts to minimize the delay. We try to be informative at all times and we will try to improve it with all of your comments. In reference to the lunch, it consists of bread with tomato, wine jug, chorizo, Spanish omelette, olives and fruit. The meal can vary a little depending on the fruits of the season. I sincerely regret that the tour was not up to your expectations and invite you to see the improvements implemented thanks to your comment the next time you visit our city.

THE BEST FOR HORSE RIDING
Oct 2017 • Couples
Our experience was beautiful. Nice horses, super nice guide and beautiful trails. At the end delicious big lunch of tortilla, tomato bread, fruit, olives, wine and a little cake. I believe the cake was a present from Barbara, because she knew it was our honeymoon :) . thank you LIVINGIT! We highly recommend them!
