After our hotel made a mistake by booking with the wrong company, and having a TERRIBLE experience with santo horse riding, we booked with this stable, Santorini horse riding. The owner and staff are professional, friendly, and local people that are worth supporting. We booked the Eros beach tour and learned some neat things during the tour. The trail was on mostly paved or dirt paths on the way to and from the beach. The overall ride was pleasant and relaxing. The horses are absolutely beautiful. As an experienced rider, I truly appreciated the quality of his horses. They were clean and healthy. Additionally, they limit the riding and almost never have tours go out from 12-4 as it is too hot. Clearly they care about both the horses and riders and are not just trying to make money. After riding with both companies I can truly say the experience we had with this company is far superior to that of santo horse riding. The horses, staff, information, trail, and overall
experience was outstanding. Even the quality of helmet and chaps that they provide were better. Had a wonderful time and would do it again if we are back in Santorini!

If you have the opportunity to do this, DON"T HESITATE.
The people who take care of the horses and offer the tours feel like friends after 10 minutes of knowing them. The horses are taken care of so lovingly and it's very obvious. The tour itself is the best part. Imagine the scenery in Santorini- and then imagine yourself riding a beautiful horse over fields with wild flowers, the beach, and some areas where they grow grapes for wines. Seriously- don't miss the opportunity.

Our family took a two hour horseback ride to Eros Beach in June, 2018. Three members of our party had not ridden horses before and were initially quite anxious, but the staff did an excellent job of addressing initial concerns and our family throughly enjoyed our two hour ride.

We did the Megalochori Village tour and it was great! Our guide even took pictures of us along the journey and we got to see really neat vineyards. The horses we clearly cared for and the owners love what they do! One of the owners even took the time to drive us to our next excursion after our tour-- so sweet! Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun activity near Fira.

This is something we'd planned and after reading the reviews hoped it would be as great as promised - and it was!

We were picked up at our hotel in Oia for the 30+ minute ride to the stable. Being equestrians you never know how well horses for these type of ride are kept but ours and the facility were in amazing shape. The horse are well cared for, not over worked, well fed, properly groomed and the tack was in perfect shape. We ended up using western rather than the English saddles we'd requested but other than that all was well.

We booked the private 3 hour sunset tour to the beach which, with transport, was 320 Euro but well worth it.

Upon arrival our horses were tacked and ready and we took a 30-40 minute ride down to the beach through some of the most gorgeous volcanic scenery you can imagine. The trail is tough but the horses sure-footed. We stopped along the way for photos at a blue dome church and then on to the beach where we had more photos and our guide allowed us to ride in the water and my girlfriend to canter and even run along with him on the beach.

We took another route back to the top for more photos at sunset.

My only qualm with the trip was that as rider with some experience I was given an utterly dead broke horse that was a bit lazy. Having advised them in advance of our skill level I would have hoped for a more lively mount.
