I've been in touch with Erkem for two years to do a ride. We finally organized a camping trip for March, with his son Omer as my private guide. I chose a spirited Arab- and mind you I am a very experienced rider - but this Arab would have none of me. This happens sometimes, a horse decides that it... More

We really enjoyed our horse riding afternoon with the Dalton Brothers. As we are not experienced riders they gave us very patient horses who knew were they were going - we just had to sit on them and hold the reins! The guide was very patient. The horses seemed well cared for, healthy and happy.

Riding with the Dalton Brother was one of the best rides of my life! My two hour sunset tour was incredible, taking me into valley after valley of unbelievable landscapes. We had the most beautiful horses and very sweet tall Turkish guide. The horses are well loved and easy to control. I am so happy that I had this experience... More

Pro tip: Pay with credit card so you can pay for your ride at the end rather than in the beginning. We were excited to try Dalton Brothers as it had great ratings and our hotel worked with them. However, we soon realized that they barely speak English, have poor safety protocols in place, the tour itself is lackluster and... More

Guide didn't speak any English and there wasn't any safety standards in place including basic instructions The guide's horse caused a stampede and I was unable to stop my horse. Eventually I was thrown of my horse, bleeding all over the place. Thank god there was a helmet otherwise I would have broken my head open. The guide eventually comes... More

If you are not scared of horse riding, this activity is very soothing. For two hours you go through valley while sun is setting. The horses are well trained and follow the horses in front. You rarely have to use harness to navigate. however, your horse will be tempted to munch on plants once in a while, but the guide... More

By chance my family and I came across the Dalton Brothers Ranch and it was a wonderful experience.

They guides who came with us especially the Canadian Lianna were wonderful and knowledgeable. Due to other commitments... More

We had never ridden before, but with the nice relaxed horses, our two hour trip through the beautiful valleys around Göreme was too short. During these two hours, we covered a good distance. It is a quiet way to explore the fairy valleys around Göreme. Our guide was very nice and English speaking. Everything was perfect, and I would like... More
