We did the 90 min quad biking at the Desert explorers. And this is an experience one should not miss.

We had such a great time. Our guide Chris was fantastic. Our son who is 9 has had very limited experience on a quad but Chris was patient with him and so he had an amazing experience. Highly recommend this outing, ask for Chris!

My friends and I went there to do Quad biking. When we got in, we were ignored when we entered but we didn't think much of it.
