The best deal is to do one of their deluxe full-day adventure packages. Along with the horseback riding , an ATV tour, two other Hawaii experience tours. With the full day adventure package you can do those two events, the very popular movie site tour, and one other event, and a nice buffet lunch is included too. Round-trip transportation from Waikiki hotels is available with this package.
Please note that if you want to do BOTH horseback riding and the ATV tour you must book the DELUXE full day adventure. The regular full day adventure includes EITHER horseback riding OR ATV tour, along with three other Hawaii experiences.
If you want to go horseback riding as part of a full day package, use the form at right to reserve your spot at the Ranch as space is limited. While it's a good idea to have in mind the top two or three events that you'd like to do, the selection of the exact tours that you will do on your package is made upon arrival at the ranch. If you are reserved in advance for a package, adequate space is allotted for you to select the specific events you would like on the morning of your tour.
