I would recommend this horseback adventure in a heartbeat!! Our entire family with kids (25, 22 and 12) all had a great time! The guides were beyond amazing from start to finish; they were so kind and helpful all the way, giving pointers and chatting with us. The horses were so beautiful and gentle and the scenery was gorgeous! I'd love to do it again next time we return to Aruba! Thank you to The Gold Mine Ranch for a very memorable family excursion!

Gold Mine Ranch is the best horseback riding on Aruba! The staff is professional, the horses gentle, and the sights beautiful! :) Riding (even trotting) along the beach was a fantastic way to spend one of our mornings!

We horseback ride on every vacation and this was by far the BEST! The people who wanted to were able to get a full gallop - there was a photographer snapping pics and they will pick you up at any hotel or port. 100% Recommend! They aim to be the best part of your trip and it shows!

The horseback ride fun and safe for inexperienced riders. The views were outstanding! We went by a gold mine, and cactus! Beautiful rugged coastline walks. You are not allowed to take pictures because of safety reasons, you have to hang on to your horse at all times! But they have a professional taking pictures for you to purchase at the end for $50.

Thank you for your review! We do advise not to take cameras or phones with you because 1. you can loose them and 2. for your own safety.

Highlight of an amazing trip!

This tour was nothing short of amazing! Let me first start by saying they were able to accommodate my tour with a super last minute request, which made my 10yr old birthday trip super special! EVERYONE we came in contact with (our -driver who was also an amazing photographer, the actual guide, and the staff at the ranch) all greeted us with a smile and made the tour very comfortable. We will certainly look to do this again if visiting Aruba again. Do yourself a favor and book now!

Thank you so much! Looking forward to having you back at the ranch in the future.
