We stayed in Megalochori Village and booked this a couple days prior to riding. Small family owned business. I road along with my 14 year old daughter and her friend (14) who is an experienced rider. Top notch all the way. The wife of the owner came and picked us up on time. On our ride we had 2 guides - a lead and the other was behind us. Both extremely experienced and I believe one of them competed in Greece. They allow their horses plenty of rest. The lead guide used a lead rope with my daughter's horse since she never rode before. The experienced rider had a stallion and this was the highlight of her trip as well as ours. About 2 hours and took us down to the beach and back. Very relaxing and easy pace. Safety and the riders enjoying the trip are their top concerns. Very gracious. Tip them well if you go- they deserve it!

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.
