The tour deserved more than 5 stars. Stan was a very friendly and humorous guide who wanted to do everyone justice. During the tour he showed us great places and also told us a little bit. You felt very safe and is ideal for children. It was really great!

We had a great afternoon during this excursion thanks to Stan and his offbeat humor as well as his professionalism. We really enjoy the quads and there are very beautiful landscapes. Good value for money. Nothing to say, go for it!

Such a fun experience! Would definitely recommend. Loved the trails/roads we took and drove past some of the most beautiful spots. Awesome guide as well!
