"I had a great time in Ecuador and enjoyed very much the variety of landscape, terrain, accommodations, food and horses!" Sandra, 6 December 2017, V&V tour, Ecuador

We loved our entire tripJW Sept. 2016 Ecuador

“I have to say that it was the best week of my life …So thank you for such an amazing experience.” Mimi

“… thank you for the most wonderful holiday.  An experience of a lifetime!  You made it so interesting and Antares and Lambchop [2 of our horses] were perfect for me.  I loved the country and the people…” Diana

“Just to say thank you so much for a great ride. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Galloping with the wild horses and Cotopaxi as a back drop was only surpassed by climbing to 4,200mtrs with Condors overhead. Please say a big thank you to all your team.” Julie

“You couldn't ask for a more perfect riding holiday than with Sally at Ride Andes. We have had two family holidays with Sally in Uruguay and Ecuador and both have been an experience of a lifetime! Sally's attention to detail is superb and leads for a perfectly smooth riding holiday on terrific and well cared for horses!” Demelza

Thanks for a great great week .. I loved all of it and felt very privileged to ride your lovely horses... It was a great route and all the places we stayed were special.” A. July 2016

“ THANK YOU FOR A FABULOUS HOLIDAY ON THE HACIENDAS RIDING TOUR!!!. It gets an A+ rating - based on experiences with 16 other riding holidays on four continents over the past 17 years.” Luis

Our Ecuador trip with Ride Andes was one of the best vacations my wife and I have taken. Sally and her staff took care of everything, were informative, and a pleasure to be with. The horses were wonderful. The scenery, haciendas, and food were amazing. We rode (walking, trotting, and the longest canters I’ve ever done) for 7 days through the Andean Highlands, remote villages, tree-lined lanes surrounded by roses, mountains and volcanoes. I would recommend this trip and Ride Andes to anyone looking for the adventure of their life. Bruce, January 2016

“Uruguay, our second adventure with Ride Andes, was like our first Ride Andes tour in Ecuador - absolutely fantastic!  My husband and I have quickly come to expect from Sally Vergette and Ride Andes:  (1) Fabulously fit horses that absolutely suit our very different riding styles and the varied pace and terrain; (2) immersion into the lifestyle and culture of the countries we visit; (3) day after day of delightful and interesting riding, exploring, cuisine and accommodations.  What a vacation!  We are already looking at where Ride Andes might take us next.” Kris, March 2015

“ I just wanted to thank you for the amazing riding experience. I enjoyed every minute of it and your trip opened my eyes to seeing the world in a different way…On horses! Thanks for letting us join. You and Gaspar were great guides and Christian [local horseman] is just about the warmest person I've met in my life. Your team made the experience worthwhile.  … Cheers!” Andrew , Jan 2015

"Greg enjoyed the riding so much that he is keen to go on another horse riding adventure now and has even asked how we could ever go back to any other holiday. He went from being a competent beginner to good intermediate rider (the continuity did him (and me) the world of good) although I think he would argue that he is now a pro and should be entering the next Olympics!" Jane W, June 2013

‘I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the week riding with you. Your horses and staff were fabulous …I feel very privileged to have seen the wonderful Andean landscape, had a glimpse of local life and stayed in beautiful haciendas. We’re already discussing when and where to book to come and ride with you again!’ Sarah

“LOVED IT, BRILLIANT, SUPERB, LIFE CHANGING etc etc...The guide was fabulous. She was extremely friendly and conscientious and did a sterling job. Nothing was too much trouble for her. As predicted, the organisation was perfection.One of the best -- quite possibly THE best -- rides ever! A definite ‘Must Do’.” Clare

“Riding through the Avenue of Volcanoes in the Andes was without doubt one of the most spectacular things I have ever done.” Jamie

“If this trip was priced by the number of times we heard "amazing" and "incredible" from the group, I never could have afforded to go. This is one of those, 100 trips to take before you leave this world. One word for the trip ....... ‘AMAZING’ “. Mark

“The ride was spectacular from beginning to end. It was everything that we had hoped for and more. We had a lovely guide…From the organizational point of view everything worked like clockwork. The horses were excellent and the gauchos were all most helpful … The scenery was spectacular and everyday had something exciting like crossing rivers, suspension bridges, steep climbs, staying in unique places like the island and even a rapid boat ride at the end. I would highly recommend the ride. Thank you for making it happen it was stunning.” Jennifer

‘A truly magical experience, wonderfully trained, good looking, strong horses, beautiful Haciendas in stunning locations, plenty of good tasty food, culminating in a once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in an authentic Ecuadorian experience - the cattle and horse round up. Nothing was too much trouble for Sally, the attention to detail was impeccable, this truly was a fantastic, exhilarating riding holiday.’ Lola

‘…thank you for the great organisation of the Uruguay trip… I had never enjoyed riding as much as I did during our trip.’ Francisco

‘I really enjoyed our trip …very entertaining and I hadn't laughed so much for ages. When people here ask what was the best bit of the whole trip I seem to be remembering all our fun beach rides and lunches and the laughter. And thanks to Sally for finding excellent horses for me - you will have noticed I bonded closely! And also thanks for the organisation that went into the trip. I found everyone I met in Uruguay very friendly and liked the feel of the country, and in particular all the people you are working with are very special. It was a treat to be with people who so willingly shared their knowledge of the history and wildlife. …definitely be planning a return trip - perhaps next year...’ Chris
