“Super, easy, accomodating ”

Written on: 14/12/2015 by ellenmarie (1 review written)

I had the best experience with this company! I wrote to them super last minute, and they were able to put together exactly what I wanted with such short notice. When my plans changed, I just sent a quick email and they changed again no problem! It was such a relief to work with real people and such easy and accommodating people at that. Would absolutely recommend!… Read Full Review

“Dream Holiday”

Written on: 24/10/2015

Not long returned from a Ride, Wine and Spa holiday in Italy booked through Fire and Ride. Their website is very informative and details all very accurate. They were extremely helpful with sorting out holiday dates and advising on the best riding holiday suited to my daughters and my level of riding and safety a priority. Also very prompt in answering my emails, and all written information through the post was gladly received, ensuring we have the holiday we wished for. On our return I was… Read Full Review

“Great Customer Service”

Written on: 15/10/2015 by gabbyh (1 review written)

I phoned Far & Ride asking for their recommendation for a riding holiday to suit my particular needs and they couldnt have suggested a better place. It suited me exactly and was ideal. Couldnt have been more right. You can only find this level of service in smaller companies like this, I have never experienced in larger companies, they just dont have the knowledge. They actually visit the places and experience them first hand. I will definately book with them again for future riding… Read Full Review

“Just Amazing!”

Written on: 04/10/2015

The team at Far and Ride are SO helpful, friendly and accessible. The holiday in itself was just what had been described to me and the welcome pack came in really useful, especially with its' packing guide and handy hints and tips. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are responsive to emails (normally within a matter of minutes), take feedback onboard and are just remarkably "nice" people. Although I have never met any of them, they feel like friends and are always happy to give advice… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2015 by AverilS (1 review written)

The level of service this company offers can not be faulted. Every possible detail is taken care of in the planning of the riding holidays they offer. Very comprehensive descriptions of the itineraries, locations, transfers, packing tips, advice on customs and etiquette in the country we are visiting, all combine to ensure that we choose the right holiday and are well-prepared to make the most of our experience. This is all done in the most efficent, but informal and friendly way, and… Read Full Review

“A fabulous, friendly company! ”

Written on: 22/09/2015 by Ellie5 (1 review written)

I first contacted Far and Ride via email with nothing more than a notion to go on a riding holiday, and a budget. Within an hour or so they had responded with several suggestions, and the staff were able to include lots of personal hints and tips as they have tried and tested lots (maybe all?!) of the holidays they offer. The Far and Ride team, although small, were always at the end of the phone or email, responding quickly to all my queries and easing my concerns as a solo traveller. They… Read Full Review

“I wouldn't book with anyone else. These guys are the best!”

Written on: 18/09/2015 by LesleyScott (1 review written)

I have been on several trips with Far and Ride now and each has been as fantastically well organised as the last. They offer a highly personal service and are always on hand to answer any queries you may have - or even suggest where you may like to go next! The Far and Ride website has a wide range of destinations to choose from and it is clear to see that all of their holiday destinations have been carefully chosen to provide the best hosts, horses, food, accommodation and scenery. Whatever… Read Full Review

“Would definitely book again”

Written on: 18/09/2015 by ClaireDyett (1 review written)

Far and Ride were a pleasure to deal with. The booking process was easy and they were very accommodating. I went to Iceland and had an amazing time at Polar Hestar - the horses were fantastic, the food was amazing and our hosts were fabulous. We were even lucky enough to see Whales on horseback and get a good view of the Northern Lights one night after dinner! I would definitely book with Far and Ride again as I know I would be going to ride well cared for horses which is really important to… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service, horses and adventures”

Written on: 17/09/2015 by mirrenkelly (1 review written)

Truly excellent company, providing brilliant personal service to match you with the perfect riding holiday. This is the only travel company I've used more than once. From the time you contact them with your enquiry to the detailed information pack they send out before every ride they help with every detail of your holiday to ensure that you have the best holiday. They also regularly run escorted rides (I've been on two and booked my third for next year) which are an excellent way to meet like… Read Full Review

“Superb service and riding experience!”

Written on: 15/09/2015 by HannahBignold (1 review written)

Far and Ride were incredibly helpful from beginning to end. I have never been on a riding holiday previously so was unsure what to expect, but after an in-depth call with a member of the team, all my questions were answered. I booked as a single person, aware of the supplement I would have to pay, and was kept up to date by Far and Ride as to whether there would be any other single people I could share a room with. The brochure was very informative and even after my trip Far and Ride contacted… Read Full Review

“For horse riding holidays use Far and Ride ”

Written on: 09/09/2015 by Hel2578 (1 review written)

I found Far and Ride by chance as I was going on holiday to Mallorca with my family. I wanted to do something different before I met my family and googled horse riding in Mallorca. I came across Far and Ride and they were so helpful and accommodating. The service was fantastic from the moment I booked to the time I got home. the person I dealt with at Far and Ride was so attentive and helpful - I have never experienced such excellent customer service from a travel company before. My holiday in… Read Full Review

“Far and ride by far the best.”

Written on: 13/07/2015 by augusta60 (1 review written)

I found Far and Ride thro' an article in The Week just when I was thinking it was time for another Riding adventure. Their enthusiasm when I rang was infectious and they certainly went the extra mile to match me with a ride that ticked ALL the boxes. Nothing was too much trouble as I changed my mind, thought about all the options, dithered and swithered with the dates and was probably the customer from hell!! Far and Ride's friendly service was amazing, A bonus was that I spoke to the… Read Full Review

I came across Far and Ride via a google search and I'm super glad I found this agency first as they not only are they lovely, enthusiastic people who genuinely want to pair you up with the perfect holiday/horse/s for your needs but they also provide you with really helpful extra information (about the horse riding place, your packing list, the country you are travelling to etc.) This really helps you prepare for your holiday and also to get excited about where you're going! I'm also reassured… Read Full Review

“Made our trip planning so easy”

Written on: 12/05/2015 by pegberg (1 review written)

We found Far and Ride on the Internet and were excited about the riding trips described. We selected a program in Portugal and wrote to Far and Ride for more information. They responded quickly with all the information we needed to book. After booking, when we had more questions, Far and Ride provided the answers we needed. They've actually been on these trips and really know the hosts and places they recommend. The trip was wonderful. I mean really wonderful. And a great value. It's always a… Read Full Review

“Customer Service at its best!”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by jenzyme (1 review written)

Superb experience from start to finish. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient, excellent communication, thorough, friendly, caring and proactive are all appropriate adjectives to describe this company and the service that they offer. I doubt whether a larger agency would have the same attention to detail or the same level of customer service that this company do. The holiday itself was also an excellent experience, with excellent accommodation, excellent horses, excellent guides, and excellent… Read Full Review

“My Favorite Travel Agency!”

Written on: 13/03/2015 by jeripratt (1 review written)

I don't have to worry about anything as regards my riding vacation when I book with Far and Ride. They provide all the information I need (sometimes too much : ) answer questions about my layovers along the way! I've worked with two other horseback riding vacation agencies, and I am so glad I found Far and Ride - they are my favorite! My last vacation was a trip to Sri Lanka. There were two other couples on the trip, and we compared travel agencies. Far and Ride shone! They didn't know… Read Full Review
