    My daughter and I enjoyed a marvelous ride through the real Aruba (not just the tourist resorts). The beaches were pristine, the landscape was beautiful, with aloe, cacti, and incredible rock formations. Our Paso Fino horses were a joy to ride, well-behaved and in excellent condition. The Gold Mine staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful. We will gladly return to Aruba and to Gold Mine Ranch. On a scale of 1-to-10, Gold Mine Ranch and the wonderful horses and staff earned 100 stars!! Thanks for a memorable ride. Please give extra carrots to Gucci and Elegancia.

  2. Dear Goldmine Ranch! My son and I had the pleasure of taking a tour with you last year, and we had the most fun time. So much fun, in fact, that this trip inspired me to create a travel website dedicated to fun activities on tropical islands. Thank you, Jeanette, Candee, Johnny, for the most fun time, and for taking such great care of horses! My son still remembers your dog Negra and wants to go back and play with it:)

    My husband and daughter and I just done this today. I enjoyed it so much I couldnt wait to share with people who may considering doing this tour.
    It was great highly, highly recommend. My husband and daughter had never rode a horse. We where giving instruction and sent on our way with the guides. The guides were awesome so friendly they made us feel like they cared about us a good time.
    Asboutely would recommend.

    Fantastic! Daniel was our guide and it made our ride special. My mum first time ever riding and she is 64 – she said she’d go again. And my 8 year old twin boys loved it. Our horses were Blanc, Enrico, Goldi, and Kimba.
    1.30 minutes ocean views – no ride on the beaches though…Daniel made my ride more interesting by trotting where possible. Thank you

    Best experience in Aruba! From pick up to drop off, we had an excellent time! Daniel our Guide was fun & knowledgeable. They treat both tourists & animals well. Ranch also rescue horses & other strays.

  6. wow! what more can I say? My wife and I came to Aruba for our 15yr Anniversary. There’s “another” horseback tour on the island, but it DOES NOT compare to the GOLD MINE RANCH! From Johnny to Daniel and the rest of the volunteers on the property, they were amazing! The guided tour was fabulous. Having NEVER been on a horse before, I can honestly say I felt safe and comfortable. Maria (my horse) was a gentle princess. I can’t wait to come back to the island & book more trips with Gold Mine Ranch! Thanks soooo much!

    I meant to do this much sooner, but time escaped me. We cruised in Oct. ’15 for my Daughter’s 21st bday and decided to do an excursion not on the list. So glad I did. We had such a great time with Candy and Freddy. I rode in the back so I could get my ride on with Freddy. So exhilarating galloping!!!! Then Candy switched out horses with me since I was having difficulty with stirrups. Our horses were in sync running up and down the hills. For me, I LOVED every minute of it. It took me back to my childhood years, running through the pastures with my horse. They were great and took time with those who had no experience and yet gave me a great memory. I highly recommend them!!!!

    Excellent! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the horses are very well cared for. The tour lasts about 90 minutes, was just the right length and was well worth the money. Incredible ocean views, they best way to see the Aruba back country. Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend the Gold Mine Ranch. My daughter and her boyfriend recently enjoyed a wonderful and exhilarating ride. They enjoyed it so much they went again the next day so I could join them. The owners were lovely and the guides were very good and I felt very safe. The site was beautiful also!
