“One of the best things I have ever done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

I was really nervous about getting on a quad because I had never gone on one before, but my friends convinced me. The quads were in great condition despite being driven so frequently and they had both semi-automatic and automatic options. I chose the automatic. The guide took us out slow at first and worked us up to faster and faster speeds, and by the time we got there I was having the time of my life. You zoom up and down huge sand dunes and get to see the best sights of the dunes. We did a 2 hour trip, and we got to stop 3 times and take in the views. One of these stops were for the sand boarders to take boards and fly face first down the sand. This was also great fun, but wasn't the best when you have to walk all the way back up. I think it was very worth the amount of money I spent.

“Only to do once”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

The vehicles were not in good condition. Ours was on the verge of breaking down, while another vehicle that was part of the excursion did in fact break down.

“Quad Tours were Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We enjoyed the quad tours. The guides were safety conscious and kept and eye on things but still let you have some fun. The equipment was in good condition and we felt it was good value
