Estancias Ride - Chile

Estancias Ride

5 star rating   28 February 2020

Ingrid who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Breathtaking! | We were riding up to 50km a day - up to 9 hours a day - and after 5 days I had a sore back and skipped 2 days of riding. We were at a lovely estancia and another girl took 2 days off as well, so we had lots of fun. I'm 65, so I think in future I'd book rides that involved fewer hours in the saddle.

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

My In The Saddle folder, with all the info about the daily rides, plus my flight info etc was much admired by other participants who'd booked through other agents. It was really helpful.

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

All worked well.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Patagonia was absolutely stunning, and my photos caused a sensation on Facebook! I'm currently having some online problems, but will forward some shortly. I do hope the Corona situation doesn't put a stop to Badminton, and I can call by at the stand for a chat.
