This was such an amazing and relaxing experience. I went alone, and would recommend this experience to anyone going to Santorini solo. The horses were beautiful and as someone who has only ridden a horse a couple of times, Alex made it so easy for me to get back into the swing of things! The owners are extremely, extremely kind and extremely welcoming, and I enjoyed conversing with them and getting to know them. 100% recommend and will be returning when I come back to Santorini.

Absolutely Amazing! Highly recommend!
Leanna_C, May 2024
This experience could not have been better. The brothers who own the facility are true professionals who are very kind and engaging. I’m a nervous rider and I was made to feel extremely comfortable and well cared for during the ride. The horses were friendly and gentle as well. I go horseback riding on all my trips and this was the best tour I’ve experienced. The cherry on top is that they take MANY photos and videos for you on your own device and offered to arrange for hotel pick up and drop off for a reasonable fee. I highly recommend you schedule a tour with them!
A must go in Santorini

Super friendly staffs and amazing experience. You dont need any horse riding experience and you will be well taken care of. Alex and Manues even help taking nice pictures. They are experts in both horses and accomodating guests.
An absolutely incredible experience!
Navin_D, May 2024
I would give this experience more than 5 stars if I could. Our guide for the ride was Manos, who is maybe the most friendly person you will ever meet. I couldn't say enough about how welcoming Manos and his brother Alex were in making us feel comfortable, both at the riding center and on our horses. It was my first time on a horse and Manos made sure that I was safe and enjoying the ride every step of the way. Couldn't recommend this enough. You will love it.
Honeymoon ride!
Alexa_M, May 2024
We had a great day with Manos and his horses! Manos is a retired jockey who now tends to his horses in Santorini. His and his brother’s horses are well looked after and trained properly. You can really tell Manos knows all of them very well. After our safety brief, we were off to the beach! Our ride on the beach was great and Manos took many picture and videos that came out well! He was very good at guiding my horse since I have little riding experience. I felt very safe and thought our ride was fun. Santorini has so many other excursions and I thought this horseback ride on the beach would be something different and it was! It was a great addition to our honeymoon!
Amazing experience from amazing people

It was an Awesome day.

I rode Xenia during my Horseback riding excursion on the Black sand beach. Two Greek brothers run the Efippos riding company and both are very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced with horses. One of the brothers is a former prize winning Jockey and both have been involved with horses for most of their lives. They take Excellent care of she horses and took excellent care of us four guest riders today (3 May 2024). They gave us good instructions took nice pictures of us on the horses. My Favorite riding experience. Lynwood
Amazing time!
Shannon_C, Apr 2024
What an amazing time! Alex and Manos were some of the friendliest people we have ever met and loved to share their knowledge of Santorini and Greece with us, including their own stories. They made us feel extremely comfortable on our tour (which ended up being private). You can tell they truly love their horses and what they do. I absolutely would recommend this to everyone!
A great experience
Sara_G, Apr 2024
The brothers who own the service are very personable and knowledgeable and care for the horses very well. My teenage daughter and I had just a little riding experience before and they were helpful for our level as well as for another guest who had been a competitive rider.
Absolutely amazing!!
Erik_H, Apr 2024
We had an INCREDIBLE experience!! Alex and Amani’s (our tour guides) were fantastic, this was my first time ever riding a horse and they made it so easy and made me feel so comfortable! I rode on Thor, and he was great, so funny. My fiancé rode on Zena, he also loved her. Such a great time!!
Unforgettable Experiences
Porchia_P, Apr 2024
By far one of the most unforgettable experiences here in Greece. It’s been a dream of mine to ride horses on the black sands of Santorini—especially for me being a horse girl! Alex was fantastic! Bravo!

Lovely ride, owner amazing, well cared for horses
Cindy_H, Oct 2023
We loved this adventure. Being a horse owner, the best part for me was seeing how much the owner loved his horses and cared for their wellbeing. Of course the ride was fabulous and the horses amazing. We were introduced to the other horses and learned a little about each one and the owner as well. I'm sorry I can't remember his name. He was so kind and seemed to love what he does and his animals. I highly recommend this ride to the black sandy beach!
The horses are really...
