Cara and Denise were incredible. We really enjoyed our ride and so did our kids. They accommodated all our kids even our 3 year old and gave us a ride to remember our trip by.

We had an awesome trek with Neil. The views were great and the conversation interesting. Not a ride for beginners but a great few hours out. Highly recommended!

Unable to book on to due to not enough spaces, which was not a problem, but the manner it was dealt with was unhelpful and rude. Will not attempt to book on again. Very disappointed
