Beautiful views, horseback through the Tuscan landscape was once again on our wish list. It was fun, but the guide didn't speak a word of English (it says so). This caused mutual frustration due to the lack of information on how to ride (never ridden a horse myself). There was 1 employee at the equestrian center who gave good English instruction when asked, but that was about it. The guide wanted to continue on the way, while we also wanted to take a picture of the beautiful view. After insisting, this was finally possible. For example, the guide didn't say anything about the area, only a few times in Italian because there were Italians in the group. That was a pity. Also a must! If this is on your bucket list, definitely do it! All in all we thought it was a fantastic experience. Oh yes, we were supposed to be picked up by a van with air conditioning, but this was by a gentleman in a tiny air-conditioning-less car, he didn't speak English either. A little uncomfortable tho

Beautiful walk through vineyards, olive groves and woods in the San Gimignano area. Donna and Romantica (our mares) are very docile. This excursion is also suitable for people like me who have never been on horseback before. Very polite and friendly staff. You can breathe Tuscany in all respects. Recommended

It was nice. If you do not have any experience then it’s good. I was hoping for a trot, but we stayed at a steady pace. It was an amazing Vite though.
