The Buggies are in extremely bad condition, tyres are run down, seats completely worn out, steering wheels disgusting. The instructor didn't care about a torn off braking cable when showed to him. The staff is mostly unfriendly and rude, instructions are minimal. Seats can't be moved, so if you don't happen to have the right size, driving will be a pain.
Rather spend your money elsewhere (and you actually save quite some money when you DON'T come here...it's an expensive place)

Not only horse lessons and rides here but a nice little petting zoo and Camel rides ! There are also motorised buggy trails in groups of around 10, looked fun but not for the youngsters really. A nice place to visit for a few hours and just watch if you wish with a cafe etc on site no need to do without coffee and a snack. For us it was for our 11 year old horse daft daughter to have a trek. She loved it and was away for a good hour into the lava Mountains around. Reasonably priced, but cannot comment on pricing for Camels and Buggies.

The horses are beautiful and well cared for here. I took a 2 hour ride for experienced riders last week when holidaying in Playa Blanca which cost 60 euro. There were 6 of us taken out by 2 guides who were friendly and helpful. I soon fell in love with my allocated horse, Peter Pan, who was well behaved and lovely. The ride was over some beautiful scenery and a mixture of walking, trotting and some long canters. It was so windy that you couldn't hear a thing! And I had to canter with my eyes shut due to the dust. If your experience of riding is in an arena or paddock be aware that this can be totally different! I had a great time and would definitely return if I go back to Lanzarote

6 of us went on this tour of which 2 couldn't reach the pedals or see over the steering wheel without sitting on the edge of the seat so if you are shorter than 5ft 3inches take something to sit on. Brilliant 3 hours fantastic scenery but buggies are not road worthy in our sense of things that is very little or rather no brakes. Gears not that good either but they go andwe had a really Enjoyable day

paid 95 euros for the buggy tour here.

the tour itself is excellent and great to see the island from a different perspective.

however, considering we paid 95 euros for this, the buggys are in shocking condition. our was only running on a few cylinders, the gears were shocking, the speedo didnt work, and the brakes....oh my god, what brakes..... i had to stand on them so hard to get the worn down pad to even connect with the disk...... these buggys have never ever seen any maintanence!!!!

a few people had the same problem with brakes however the guides said they were safe...i think not!

such a shame as the tour its self was great.
