Perol Chico - Peru

The Sacred Valley Ride

5 star rating   18 September 2019

Sue (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Fantastic: magical ride through unspoilt countryside | It far exceeded my expectations. The Paso horses were very well cared for. I got to ride three different horses during the ride. All were wonderful.

The breakfast in both hotels was good and varied.
Lunch on the ride was amazing: the back-up vehicle was always ahead of us at the lunch stop. Washing facilities were arranged. Table was set out with water, wine and tea/coffee. Maria then started to cook us a fresh meal (different every day), using her camp stove.
Even meals were taken either at the ranch, or at a restaurant - except for the day at Machu Picchu, when we were treated to fine dining on the return train journey!!

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I received the right amount of information - and always had courteous replies to any questions.

The packing list is possibly too long: there really is no need for a woollen hat, thermals, rainproof trousers. The weather was in the 20s all day long and on the odd colder / wet moments ponchos are provided.

Riders might be warned that the ride is dusty: I was often near the back of the ride and covered in sand.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

All fine

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Many thanks!
