I've ridden in a few places in Europe and overseas and enjoyed my treks with Waiheke Horse Tours the most.
Liz is fantastic and the horses are gorgeous, tame and well behaved.
The nature reserve is exceptional with beautiful views.
All in all, strongly recommend - and thank you, Liz! :)

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 :)
