An interesting excursion.
I ordered this tour for two (for my son and me). It was a little expensive, but extremely interesting – we were drowned with impressions. We were trotting and galloping. The horses were obedient and brave, confidently prancing on the edges of the gorge! I recommend this excursion very much! This was probably the best experience we had in Armenia!

Horseback riding in Garni
In a few words, this tour was great! I loved the balance between "cultural" (Geghard, Garni...) and "entertainment" (horse riding). The horses were well trained, I appreciated it. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Your first-hand experiences really help other travelers. Thanks!
