Amazing experience with guide Pablo. It was my first time driving a quad and it ended up being a private tour - which worked out perfectly. Pablo was very kind, patience and attentive through my learning and went at a slow pace till I got comfortable. He also offered to take photos and videos from different angles. The drive to the mountain is very scenic going through the smaller towns. The cliff at the end (option for diving and swimming) also has beautiful views.

Chose quad biking on a whim as a fun activity. It was our first time going on quad bikes, our guide made us feel welcome and enthusiastic. Enjoyed the whole experience, definitely recommend.

Superb experience to repeat, the guide "Pablo" was friendly and attentive. Too bad the climate was not there, but we made the most of it.

Awesome tour Guides and a really worth while ride though the back towns of Spain you might not normally see! Would love to do again

Great experience. Our guide, Pablo, was very friendly.
