Caroline (France) – July 2023

Wonderful stay in the Camargue. Supervision at the top with Caroline who is an excellent guide. The ride is of high quality, the horses are wonderful. The landscapes are magnificent, I recommend this ride.

Heather (U.S.A.) – Fevrier 2022

Extremely welcoming at the equestrian center! Our guide Carolyn was very knowledgeable about the area and the horses, and made the trip very enjoyable. The staff at the center were also great to talk with and made delicious food. I saw several other tours while out on the trail and I was happy to be with our group. Our horses were very well treated, and my horse was an appropriate fit for my experience level. A wonderful trip, and I absolutely intend on going again! This trip was the best way to fully experience Camargue, hands down, and the ride was not your usual trail ride where the horses only do their route. The horses had fantastic personalities and spunk. Thank you for a great experience !

Dany (France) – Juin 2018

Très bon accueil sur le centre et son équipe de pro, les chevaux au top, les paysages féeriques, le rêve en somme. Dommage que nous n'ayons pas su à l'avance le lieu où nous allions car nous y aurions passé une nuit de plus, ce qui nous aurait bien arrangé venant de loin. La chambre petite mais très confortable et le repas un régal. Un havre de paix dans une nature généreuse. Les chevaux sont tous en excellent état. Merci pour cet excellent séjour à notre guide pour son professionnalisme et son grand savoir sur les rites et traditions Camarguaises qui nous a fait découvrir une région sauvage où la nature, la faune, la flore ont toutes leur place dans un décor de rêve inoubliable.

Nathalie (France) – Mai 2018

J'ai réservé un week-end de randonnée en Camargue et je recommande fortement Cap Rando. L'organisation était top, le service remarquable et les personnes très arrangeantes.

(France) – Avril 2018

Nous sommes ravies de notre séjour. L'accueil était parfait, les gens passionnés, simples, accueillants sans pour autant être "trop touristiques". Juste ce qu'il faut. Un grand merci à eux ! Mon cheval était excellent. Bon de l’hébergement. Je recommande le centre de tourisme équestre pour la qualité de son accueil, de ses programmes de randonnées, de la convivialité de toute l'équipe ainsi que de son professionnalisme. Je retournerai avec plaisir en séjour chez eux !!! Merci à Mr Simonot de Cap Rando pour sa disponibilité et sa réactivité.

Sylvie (Belgique) – Septembre 2017

Bonjour,
Quelques jours se sont écoulés depuis notre retour de week-end. Nous avons été enchantées. Réellement. Nous avons découvert la vraie Camargue, rencontré des personnes généreuses et entières. Les paysages étaient magnifiques, les chevaux au top, un guide super.
L’équipe va nous manquer, son gratin dauphinois aussi. Nous parlons déjà d'une prochaine fois, et au même endroit. Merci pour votre orientation. Nous avons chacune réalisé un rêve d'enfance, et vous y aurez contribué. Merci.
