Drake was a knowledgeable guide and our horse Buddy did all the hard work. Fantastic tour on route #5. If the guide is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, then all routes will be great tours. Drake was great. Lovely day, even if it was cold! The blankets were a hospitable touch, and much appreciated.
Buddy the horse and John the guide were fantastic. Very knowledgeable and enjoying. Fabulous tour! I went again and was lucky enough to get Buddie again. He's gentle and sweet. Big horse for pulling, they do such a great job with the care of these horses.
