Me and my sister went on the 6-day “coast to coast” (north to south) with Lucciano and Paula. They were such good guides and we had so much fun. The trip was beautiful with all the different landscapes and the lovely places we stayed overnight. The horses were amazingly sweet and strong. Would defenitly recommend this trip!

My wife and I had an amazing experience here. Luciano was kind and friendly and picked us up on time, just as he said he would. He made transport to and from Cefalú comfortable and easy. Once there, Marylouisa and Paola we’re perfect guides! And of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how awesome and friendly Stella and the mighty Romero were (the horses)!

If you’re in the Cefalú area and you are looking to ride horses through some of the most beautiful country on earth and with super knowledgeable and friendly guides (and beautiful horses!), this is your place. HIGHLY recommend. Thank you Luciano, Marylouisa, Paola, Stella, and Romero - we hope to come back soon!

Casual horseback rides only with my wife and wonderful guide Maria, though the Madonie area nearby. Oil groves, vineyards, farm animals on a breezy day in the Sicilian countyside. Excellente!

This was the most amazing adventure through the beautiful countryside. I can’t think of a better way to experience the beauty and nature of the Madonie.

Everyone was super nice and helpful. Paola and Mary Luisa were excellent guides. The horses were calm and well trained. You can see and feel that the horses are well cared for here. Luciano even picked us up and returned us to Cefalu.

Hopefully we can return and take a longer adventure next time!

We went on a short - 2 hours ride with my 9yo daughter. Views were incredible, as well as an experience of riding up and down in the real offroad conditions. The guide was great, very respectful and professional. For sure we will try it again in a couple of months. 100% positive review.

I recently went on the coast to coast ride and it was an experience not to be missed. The guides were very helpful and showed us the true Sicily where no cars or even walkers can go. It was amazing to see such expanse of unspoiled countryside and ride lovely horses - forward going but well behaved and well looked after. Accommodation was rustic as expected but own en suite bathroom and delicious food and wine. I would recommend this highly.

I can't say of the tour is good or bad because they completely stud me up! They were supposed to pick me up from my hotel but nobody came. I waited for over an hour and nothing. They didn't even dean to tell me they weren't coming... So worst company ever, and for Italy, that's saying something!!

It was, by far, one of the best holidays I’ve had and I think that Sicilian hospitality may have something to do with it. Great value for the money too. There was not a day where we thought that yesterday was a better day. Every day surprised us in the best possible way. And riding on the crater on the sixth day was simply overwhelming.

It was very thoughtfully organised trail. Horses were taken care of by our guides only. THE FOOD! I am not going to nominate the best meal of the trail, every meal was superb. Every dinner was 5 courses without fail and real coffee was made in front of us after each picnic.

From the time that I was picked up for a trail and returned back to the airport 8 days later, our guides took care of everything and I cannot thank them enough. Both guides’ level of attendance to all matters and their professional manners are exceptional. Their knowledge of the area is well above average and their love of what they do for a living is admirable.

Six days of riding, eight hours in the saddle each day. Landscapes were changing every two hours. In the evenings we were talking about the morning’s events as if they took place yesterday, this is how much was happening during each day. We saw wild horses, wild pigs, wild goats, as well as all sorts of farm animals and even a wedding on our way from Cefalu to Etna. We’ve been places that not many Sicilians know about. Alex had a little story about each place that we’ve passed or visited.One has to be fit for Cefalu to Etna trail though.

Organisers of Cefaly to Etna trail are introducing a new trail next year: From Coast to Coast, which will be from the North of Sicily down to the South, and I am going back to Sicily …

Had the best time ever during the excursion “Gole di Tiberio”

Luciano offers the possibility of transportation from Cefalù’s train station, which is super handy when you’re staying in Palermo like I did.

We arrived at this amazing location that happens to be an agritourism structure. If I knew this, I would have defiantly stayed there the night before the excursion. Magical place !

It was amazing to see that Luciano really loves his horses and treats them as if they were his kids. I have never seen such serene horses, and believe me, it gives you the best feeling ever !

Regarding the excursion itself : out guide was Angelo which is the nicest person ever ! He was so knowledgeable about the mountains, the plants, the horses etc.

The scenery is absolutely breathtaking! Horse riding in the Sicilian mountains... it is ever better than it sounds. Literally a dream that came true.

One advise though : if you’re found the excursion Gole di Tiberio like I did, make sure to bring aqua shoes as otherwise you will have to walk in the water (until your knees) with your boots, which is not the best feeling ! I would also recommend to bring a towel and a swimming suit as you can swim in the river.

I would highly recommend those guys for whoever is looking for something cool and off the path to do in Sicily !

We have just returned from the most amazing week with Sicily Horse Tours, during which we explored the Madonie National park and local towns and villages.
Alex is an intelligent and entertaining guide who imparted his knowledge and passion for this stunning area with great charm and humour; he was very professional with the horses and we felt safe at all times.
The horses were well cared for and both responsive and sure-footed as well as having plenty of energy to gallop at the end of a long day!
The park itself is breathtaking and every day we discovered a different part of it with varied terrain and vegetation.
We are planning to come back soon for another adventure!
