  1. Horseback riding would be a cool way to explore the new place! Inclusive of pickup & drop at hotel is perfect! Good to know that experience isn’t necessary as well, so a complete novice like me wouldn’t have to worry! Lolz…

  2. Aw Ella, you look so cute and comfortable on that horse! I bet the view was incredible around there, I’d really like to recreate this trip myself one day. It’s also good to know they pick you up from your hotel, that’s always useful when on a tour!

  3. This looks like a nice way to experience Cusco. I’ve only done a tiny bit of horseback riding in a stable so it would be an adventure. Any other tips to survive this trip?

  4. I have never been horseback riding, but this one looks super fun! I mean, where else can you see alpacas from a horse?!? And 3 hours seems like just the right amount of time.

    Such a lovely place to ride a horse, very authentic. The lama looks not impressed, LOL, did he move out of the way? The scenery is beautiful!

  6. Sounds like a fun way to explore Cusco. Though I am not fond of horse riding. It is quite uncomfortable and I can’t help but feel a little sad for the horse.

  7. Wow looks like an awesome experience to have! I would love to visit Peru and horse riding would be amazing to do! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
