"This is more than a riding holiday. A culturally enriching experience which gives the rider the opportunity to ride incredible Peruvian horses across epic landscapes, meet local people and observe the way of life in city, valley and mountains, sample delicious locally grown food and see the markets and farmers at work. Understand the complex history and culture of Peru. I came back a more confident rider and more knowledgeable about Peru and South America. An experience not to be missed."

"This is a trip of a lifetime! If you are looking to see an amazing country filled with culture up close and personal, this is the way to do it. The horses and tack are top notch. The hospitality will blow you away. Your every need is attended to by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Not to mention the food! We had the freshest, most elaborate meals served to us at every stop. We were so sorry to say goodbye. I felt like I was leaving family."​

"From the moment Maria met us at Cusco Airport, we were swept up in a warm embracing hospitality, and every detail of the journey was perfect. The horses were a joy to ride, and we were well briefed in advance by Eddy for the challenges along the way. We saw spectacular scenery and daily life away from the tourist bustle. Maria prepared delicious Peruvian specialties, and always found an ever more beautiful place to set up the picnic tent. The grooms and driver were always on hand to make the journey seem effortless. My only complaint is that the time went by too fast!"

"It’s wonderful to be back. Back among the mountains that remind us of our vulnerability, our ultimate lack of control over the world we live in. Mountains that demand humility, and yield so much peace in return."
