“Jeanette W”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Want to do something different on your hols,well try this. We did the 3 hour trip and also the 5 both were fantastic. We would of done another trip but ran out of time,we enjoyed it so much. You must hold a driving licence to do this,but my 14 year old son came on the back with me and still had fun.As for getting dirty yes you do ,but we went twice and only had to wash our clothes once after each time,the dirt came straight out. It was so nice to see parts of the island you wouldnt normally get to see,so quiet to. Steve the guide was great i had never been on a quad bike before ,but Steve drove around the block a couple of times with me till i felt confident and off we went. Would recommend East coast rides to anybody going to Fuertuventura it was brill we loved it, and would definatley do it again.Thanx Steve and Ceri. x

“Really good day out!”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

We did the 3 hour Quad tour in the 2nd week of June and had a really good time.
The actual trip was great, we saw loads of stuff and went half way up a volcano! When you stop for a break you realise how quiet it is, it's just amazing!
Didn't get an awful lot of information about the quads or the roads, which were quite scary to drive on when you've never done it before but we managed okay and the instructor was really easy to talk to. Gave us lots of information and went at our pace which was good.
Only problem was that we had no idea how dusty it was going to be, and so hadn't thought about what clothes we were wearing. Even when I contacted someone before we went away we were never warned. Normally, we don't mind getting dirty but the problem is that the bright orange dust that you ride through at some points stains your clothes like mad. We washed them as soon as we got back and have washed them a further 3 times since coming home and it doesn't come out. So now we have about £80 of clothes that is completely unwearable (one t-shirt was brand new). That was the only disappointment as I think we could have been told if that was going to happen.
Apart from that it was a really great day out and I would recommend the experience to anyone!
:)

Hi Sarah, thank you for taking the time to do this review and letting us know how much you enjoyed the trip. I am sorry you were not warned about the dust I will ask the booking agents to let people know about the dust. We do ask people to not wear their best clothing as you will get very dirty and it is very dusty out there due to the fact that we have had very little rain this year. With regards to information about the quads all the controls are explained before you set off and each person who is driving is given a trial run around the block with the instructor on the back, we do our best to ensure that everyone is comfortable before we set off. Again thank you for the review and for letting everyone know how much you enjoyed it. Ceri & Steve

“Great way to see the island...”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

The 3 hour quad biking tour was an excellent way to see the island and really good fun. The guide was ok, he just seemed a bit bored and like he couldn't be bothered, he wasn't very good at helping us when we first went off-road on the quad bikes, just impatient. But that is far eclipsed by the awesome experience, I definitely recommend it.

“A must do trip out”
Reviewed 23 May 2012 via mobile

We had a fantastic trip for 3 hours on the Quadbikes with Steve, never been on one before and can't wait to do it again. We visited parts of the Island that everyone should see, so get off that sunbed and have some real fun.
When we go back we plan to do the 5 hr trip and see even more

Dear Dave (the driving instructor) let us know when your quad instruction courses start in the UK. Glad you enjoyed it I am always worried when I take professional drivers out that I am not going to meet the standards that they expect. Thanks for taking the time to do the review and we look forward to seeing you for your 5 hour when you are next on the island. Ceri & Steve
