The location was beautiful & the trails easy to negotiate. The leader supplied lots of information on the the natural flora & birds. A chance to gallop would have been the icing on the cake, but I understand why it wasn’t possible. Thank u

Mahalo for taking the time to share your 5-star review and recommendation for others. Your timing was perfect - just before spring break, landing you an unexpected private tour with one of our knowledgeable guides. Until we meet again, happy trails.
