Absolutely loved this adventure ride. Picked up from our hotel as advised and delivered to the office in a timely fashion where we were given a demonstration on the operation of the bikes, safety tips and what to expect on the ride. There was about 10 of us and we all had the most amazing time covering about 30km on the bike as well as a couple of kilometres on foot hiking to the crater tops. You don't need any previous experience per say, however I would suggest some level of fitness an advantage as well as the ability to ride a bike. The power does come in useful should you require it so you can be greatly assisted if the hills become to difficult. You cover all types of terrain including road, gravel and sand. Make sure you take sun cream and water. The tour is conducted to suit everyone's abilities and no one is left behind with regular stops to regroup. We absolutely loved it and the scenery on route is spectacular. Highly recommend.

A great tour of the north of the island. From the Dunes of Corralejo to the three lighthouses, passing through the wonderful experience of climbing the crater of the Caldero Hondo Volcano. Alfredo is an impeccable guide, very close and with a great knowledge of Fuerteventura. The next day we already had the 4k drone flight video of our experience. Highly recommended, all great! Thank you very much Alfred! Ramon and Angela.

Alfredo was a fantastic tour guide. It was 100% worth the money. After viewing a large crater, we ate tapas at a local restaurant. Beautiful stories and went to the coastline. 200% recommended. Tip, take the private tour, there is not much difference with a group tour.

One of the best excursions we have ever been on. Scenery was spectacular, volcano area amazing and cycling through the sand dunes was one of the best experiences I have had. Matteo and Luigi were excellent guides, great experience for my family.

El guía, Alfredo, fue muy amable y nos explico curiosidades que no vienen en las webs . Creo que es una excursion que si haces por tu cuenta, no disfrutas ni entiendes del todo. Fue un actito.
