Hello! I am an official tour guide and lover of Andean culture. 23 years ago I began to explore the magical world of horseback riding in Cusco. Since my childhood, horses have been my source of peace. I'll tell you a little secret, when my equine companions and I venture into the woods, all it takes is one whistle to make them all come to me. It is a unique connection that we have developed over the years. I don't want to brag, but the experience I offer on my horseback riding is so beautiful that, most of the time, people come recommended by friends who have already experienced this adventure. They tell them: «If you visit Cusco you can't miss a horseback ride with Gabriel. You won't regret it! I am proud of this because I constantly strive to improve and guarantee a unique and, above all, safe experience for everyone who trusts me.

    Gabriel, the owner, led me on a tour to visit four Inca and pre-Inca ruins around Cusco, and it was one of the best tours I've been on. In addition to his extensive knowledge, he also takes excellent care of his horses, showing them extra attention and care. I highly recommend this experience. My horse was Apu, una lindura
