thank you very much for your review. You have chosen really a perfect combination: A nice beginner ride and afterwards some delicious food. Great that you enjoyed!
All the best, long-lasting memories and hope to see you again!

We are a family with two children. We met with the charming guide Diogo - we have no experience in horse riding, Diogo explained how to ride the horses and we went out with him for a wonderful hour and a half walk. Diogo took...More
