This was a highlight of our trip around the North Island! Liz was fabulous and provided excellent guidance for us two novices. Excellent horses and amazing trek climbing up high to get a 360 degree view of the island. Such a peaceful and relaxing experience. Thanks to Liz and our horses Major and Apache.

I felt safe & competent on a lovely little horse which was the perfect size for me. He was well behaved & responsive. The quick riding lesson before we started was really valuable & Liz's knowledge of the area was huge. I'm definitely going to include Waiheke Horse Tours on all Waiheke visits I make! :-)

I booked this trip as a solo traveller and from pick up to drop off Liz was brilliant! She is so friendly and helpful; as a previously experienced rider but having not ridden for a few years (and a couple of bad falls!) I was slightly nervous but Liz made me feel completely at ease. The horse I rode, Marmite, was a gem and we had so much fun! The views are great, horses great and Liz was a great guide. For anyone, whether you’re an experienced rider or fancy giving it a ago for the first time, I can’t recommend them enough! Thanks for a great day Liz!

This trip was simply outstanding! Liz does such a good job at making you feel comfortable and secure and her horses are wonderful. As a rider you get to see all the wonderful scenery that Waiheke has to offer and you get to do it on a happy and healthy horse that is clearly taken good care of. There is no better way to experience nature than in the saddle. A memory for life. Special thanks to Moss for being awsome :)

My sister and I had an excellent time riding horses with Liz and her guides. We got to ride two horses from the Lord of the Rings movies which was the main reason we chose Waiheke Horse Tours. My horse Felix was ridden by Bilbo and Sir Ian Mckellan (as well as Tom Cruise!) The ride itself was wonderful. I couldn’t imagine a more beautiful setting to ride horses into the sunset. I’m not a very experienced rider but Liz made me feel very confident. The two hour peninsula tour absolutely flew by. I think what made this trip stand out also was how friendly Liz and her guides are. It felt more like a fun ride with friends than a lesson. If you are looking to ride horses near Auckland you should absolutely call Liz at Waiheke Horse Tours :)
