The tour was great! The guide very nice.

The guide explains everything. In between, too, it is always explained which route is coming and how to best manage it. Was very fun!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately it was stated in the offer that the tour lasts 4 hours and we will be picked up at the hotel. That was not the case. The tour lasts 2 hours. Pick-up at the hotel has to be booked separately, I don't know where and costs an extra $ 100. None of this was apparent when booking. The voucher also had a duration of 4 hours and was picked up at the hotel. I find this misleading and would book on the spot next time. If we hadn't called, we would still be standing at the hotel and waiting ........ But the tour itself was great !!!!!

Super fun experience! Six of us went so each couple had our own UTV. Devo our guide was awesome. He would explain what’s ahead on each of the trails and gave us the opportunity to switch drivers and switch up the order of the UTVs so we all took turns eating each other’s dust. LOL. He also took lots of pictures for us. The dessert and 4 Peaks Mountain were absolutely spectacular. Highly recommend and well worth the money.

unforgettable experience and Chad our guide knows the region extremely well
