È stata un’attività davvero entusiasmante per gli amanti come noi dell’acventura!Fortunatamente abbiamo trovato una guida italiana Lorenzo, che con tanto entusiasmo, passione e dedizione ci ha accompagnato per le vie di maspalomas e spiagge della melonera! A dire il vero è stato un tour privato perché una coppia non si è presentata e ciò lo ha reso ancora più entusiasmante e avventuroso…Lorenzo una persona disponibilissima e preparata ci ha fatto scorgere viste meravigliose e tramonti indimenticabili.. 3 h sono volate e ci siamo molto divertiti

I am very pleased. The man from the bike rental is very nice and takes care of everything so that it fits. I was glad that I got rental bikes for children because this is always very difficult. The shop is very well located 10 minutes to Playa del Ingles about 10 minutes to the Dunas de Maspalomas. Can't recommend it warmly, hence 5 stars.

Wow! Awesome experience. Great way to see what’s about and fun! Alex is such an interesting guy and full of knowledge of the island. Wish we had done this earlier in the holiday as it let us see what was where. Excellent. 5 star.

Loved this experience! Alex was very helpful and friendly and made us feel at ease using the segways for the first time. Also provided us with photos and videos of the tour. Would definitely recommend

Super helpful staff and very good scooters!! They give you a map with the best places to go. Would 100% recommend!!
