Guide was great!! She had awesome stories about the area and the ranch and really made us feel like family not tourists. Got to canter and see the ranch in operation, even some wild pigs. Thanks and we will return.

My kids enjoyed the scenic ride as well as the trotting and cantering. Jackie and Darian when great hostesses. Jackie was energetic and positive while Darian was informative and caring. We would love to do this again when we come back to the big island. Thanks again.
