“Much better than expected”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Visited last week in a group of 6 (3 buggys) and booked the 3 hour excursion. Slightly worried by some of the previous reviews however we were all very happy with the overall experience. Buggys are a little rough and ready (seats do not adjust forward so I would advise taking a cushion/padding if you are short) but this is to be expected given the terrain and the punishment they take. Interesting routes through the hills down to the sea and the guides let you go as fast as you like so you are not trundling along at a snail's pace. 4 forward gears and plenty of time on the main roads lets you find out how fast they can go. As for previous comments about broken dials - who cares! They aren't necessary. Well worth a visit if you like motorsports and you've already been karting. Essential to bring sunglasses due to the dust (we were caked in it) and probably advisable to bring a headscarf or snorkelling mask if you are sensitive to it!

“Buggy Tour”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

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)

“Daughter loved her Horse Hack into the mountains”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

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.

“Great horse riding experience”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

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

“Short people beware”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

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
