FANTASTIC TOUR!!! This tour was so fun, I had such a blast driving around and seeing amazing scenery! Edgar was a great guide! the Salt mine is awesome. I highly recommend this experience!

So much fun!! Salt mines were amazing, ATV’s were wickedly fun, they teach you how to drive them and give you a good amount of time to practice before setting out!

I would have preferred to ride on trails rather than a dirt road, but I am aware that there are many levels of riding experience.

Beautiful everything, the views, the photos that they helped us take, the explanations, a great experience

Really fun day! The views were amazing. All of the guides were very nice and funny.
