Setting up a ride was quick with Holger who was easy to reach via WhatsApp. Holger is a local, experienced rider, who I felt comfortable with from the beginning because of his gracious and friendly character. From our interaction on WhatsApp, I knew I was dealing with someone who was very knowledgeable about the area and who would provide the local perspective I was hoping to learn from.

My experience was absolutely phenomenal. With no additional cost, I was picked up from my hotel and was brought to the ranch where the tour began. Not a minute was wasted. As soon as we arrived things moved rather quickly and that might’ve been due to the fact I was the only one there, but I appreciated the pace because more riding time is really what I was hoping for. And I definitely got that and more!

Holger curated a very unique experience. He took me to see several archeological sites and took the time to explain their significance while we stopped at each one. It never took away from the ride at all, which was a minor concern at the beginning for me, but instead made it more meaningful since I was becoming aware of the name, history, and significance of beautiful sites and surroundings that were important to the local people and their culture.

I was never bored; just totally in awe of what I was learning and seeing during a full 3 hour ride. The views were jaw dropping! Some areas were open grasslands and others took some time to get to, but every bit was breathtaking. Not one spot Holger brought me to was underwhelming. Those 3 hours went by so quickly and looking back, I think I could’ve gone for a full day ride. By the time we got back to the ranch, I wasn’t ready to leave. That’s how much I enjoyed it.

///

To adjust to the high altitude, most people would suggest drinking coca tea or using an oxygen tank, but I opted with riding a horse, which I wholeheartedly believe to be better than both of those two options. I hope this review convinces people to do the same! You will have an enjoyable time seeing beautiful sights and learning from very passionate people. Thank you Holger & family for making my first day in Cusco memorable. 😊

We were looking for a half day activity in Cusco and my girlfriend decided to take me on a horseback adventure, we asked for the shortest route and did the mystical tour.

a taxi picked up us from our hotel at 9am, the taxi was clean and the driver very friendly.

Once we arrive to the ranch, there was Holger and his team, a group very friendly horses, I never rode a horse,, then they gave me a very calm white horse, my girlfiend had horses, then she took a big gray horse, both horses were amazing on his job, the guide as well, he explained us alot about the incas, the colonial times and of course about the archeologycal sites we visited.

we finished on time, right before the rain !.. it was a very good timing from our guide.

Thanks so much for the experience, my girlfriend was very glad with all the service. and for me it was an execellent fisrt time on horses!

We had such a wonderful time! Holger is very interesting, polite and educated person. He gave us a lot of historical information and we really enjoyed horse back riding like never before. The horses are super beautiful and well taken care of, they are experienced and help you to make your ride as pleasant as possible. This is definitely a must do!

Horses were amazing. Good condition and well trained. Guide was excellent and could give tour in English. You can see he has a passion. Best ride ever despite the rain. Felt very happy and content after the ride. It completed my Cusco trip on a high.

We booked the Mystical tour for my husband and myself. It was my husband's first time going horse back riding and Holger made it so easy.

His mother came and she was so sweet. She helped me on and off the horse a few times.

Holger is professional (called me madam a bunch of times) and knowledgeable. We were so lucky it was a perfect day to go horseback riding, the weather was lovely.

The snacks were good. There is one little part you may want to take extra caution if you are afraid of heights, but Holger will warn you in advance. Holger, please visit us in NYC if you'd like! My husband even said you can stay over our apartment. Thank you for a lovely day! Pro tip: we booked on viator. If it's your first time, you can get 10% off. Also, if the person is nice, you can book multiple tours with the 10% off.

We couldn't afford to tip that much, which I felt badly about. I tipped Holger 30 soles, his mother 10 soles, and the driver 5 soles each way. They were all so kind and gracious about receiving what we could afford to give. They are lovely people!

We took a few hours to venture with this company for riding and adventuring to naturalistic ruins vs. typical tourist big draws. We were not disappointed.

Our group of 5 had a quick introduction. We were assigned very healthy horses and the adventure began. We went for a nice walk, trot into the vast national park visiting Devil’s Valley and specific Rainbow Temple. Beautiful area, quick crawl into a small cave and some beautiful pics. It was a very nice trek. Holger is very thorough in his explaining as well as customer service centric.

After a nice snack provided by guide, we ventured off to our second location, Temple of the Moon. A nice overview provided by guide (Holger) again gave us the history and present day awareness.

The rain was just starting to come down and a nice quick trot back to the ranch and we made it just in time before the downpour.

The guide had very good English, we actually traversed part of the historical Inca trail - very cool, and with great horses and sites, you can not go wrong. They pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. Highly recommended.

We did a wonderful 3-hour horseback ride just outside of Cuzco. The ranch felt like a family operation with the horses all in great shape as were the saddles, etc.

Our trip ended up being private with just three of us which was nice, but even if there had been others I am our confident and knowledgeable lead guide Beny, and horseman Greggory who accompanied us the entire ride, could easily handle large groups. They both made us fell well taken care of.

Once we finished a quick tour of the Temple of the Moon, we rode away from everything and felt like we were riding on your own private ranch through the stunning countryside.

Beny did a great job. We stopped for snacks and to learn about some of the ruins...and just to share stories. Really perfect.

If you are looking for a few hours on horseback this is the tour for you!

After a number of tours/activities it was so great that the ranch where you start the ride is just a short taxi from Cuzco. They arranged for round trip transportation so the experience was extremely easy from start to finish.

We are so pleased that we included a tour on horseback while in the Cusco, Peru area. Especially after meeting this darling family.
First off, Holger (our guide) and his family are the most gracious and supportive people. Both his mother and father assist their adult children with larger groups. Our family of five included various riding skills which each animal matched. Each animal has been well groomed and appear to be extremely healthy. The equipment was good.
Holger speaks excellent english while conveying a solid understanding of the Inca culture and is a gentleman.
A sweet snack break while absorbing the mountain side and observing a shepherds wife and her flock was a pleasant surprise.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone.
Best Regards to the whole family,
Nancy K.

We had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and caring. My daughter and I are both experienced riders and the other girl had never rode before. He gave her good instructions and was always making sure she knew what to do. The trail was full of beautiful scenery as well as some archeological sites. Most importantly horses were well cared for. Would highly recommend.
