Experienced riders and animal lovers listen up! Please don’t book this tour. This is what happened to us on the 13th of march: We got picked up at our hostel and our driver was very nice and communicative. And that’s it with the positive experience!!! When we arrived at the ranch we startet do get a bad feeling cause some of the horses looked really bad (extremely thin). We both grew up with horses and learned to ride before walking so we have a huge knowledge about horses and how they should be treated. All in all we were about 8 people who were about to go on the riding tour. When we were about to start, it was obvious that NOBODY was able to ride a horse or have been on a horseback before. This wouldn’t be a problem if somebody would have guided them through the whole thing our would have told them what they should expect. Instead of that we started the tour and the horses (Of corse) did what they wanted. The people were partly scared and tugged and dragged the horses very badly. Nobody who could control the horse was taking the lead and so everything got really messy. At a certain point our driver started to gallop really fast and we thought it’s okay to join him, cause we are experienced. But suddenly we noticed that it wasn’t for fun - he simply couldn’t control his horse anymore. During a real fast race my boyfriend lost his Stirrup and the rope which was not properly fixed got loose on my horse and it got stuck between his horseshoe and the hoof. This is probably the most dangerous thing which every happened to me while 20 years of riding experience. After that we decided to interrupt the tour. We couldn’t tolerate how careless the people are with the horses, the equipment and the other UNEXPERIENCED riders. When we came back we noticed that one of the horses were even bleeding on his feet and had a bad injury on the hip. None of the people there, also not the guides from Vallyadventours cared about anything that happened - they even didn’t unterstand what our problem was. Probably they just thought we were scared because of the speed. And to top it all off - after bringing us back, the guy changed horse (cause he couldn’t control the other one before) and took the injured one to race back to the group who continued the tour. All in all the horses were extremely nervous and in a bad mentally and physically condition. Unexperienced riders who just tug and drag are making it so much worse. So PLEASE do not support this kind of things!!

A must if you would like to know more about Cali. The most important sights are visited and filled with information that stick to your mind. For longer visits a return to individual sights is necessary as the tour will give you an overview in about 3 h. Guide was awesome!

I did the Cali Grand City Tour with Valley Adventours and it was a wonderful experience, our tour guide did a great job in giving us history of Cali, Colombia. Totally recommend it! best time to do this tour if you can on a Sunday morning as weekdays are very hectic. I totally recommend this tour.
