Were 4 hours on the road and was over again so quickly. It was a lot of fun and it was very nice! Got a map from the guide in which he marked the most beautiful views of the island that we could reach in no time. Everything went well and without any problems. I would recommend the tour in a group and the guide together. Driving alone on the streets with the choppers was a bit dangerous and with the guide the destinations would be better and faster to reach. Nevertheless it was a great adventure which will be remembered for a very long time :). Would definitely do it again.

Great tour. The e-bikes are in good shape and everyone can take a tour of the mountains with these e-bikes. Lorenzo speaks good English and can tell you a lot about the nature of the Canaries. Hygiene is also very important. The restaurant where the tapas are served is a typical restaurant in a small cave with a beautiful view. However, it is more of a small snack with a short break than dinner. Still, it tasted great and we enjoyed the trip.

We were helped really well. Lorenzo showed us the route to a dam we wanted to see. The bycicles were in good order and had no troubles during our trip. Would recommend to rent here! He even went the extra mile by showing us some good restaurants on the map :)

Fantastic fun and informative The guide great, very knowledgable about area and history. If you go in the evening tour take a jumper though as gets a bit cold at the end. Highly recommend

The scooters are easy to operate. Was also explained great. Very friendly!! We have booked 3 hours is easily enough to comfortably drive the tour shown.
