“Amazing day thanks John!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

we booked a 6 hour tour with Cool Runnings in the middle of our week long holiday and were delighted to discover we were the only other trike going out with John. Hubby was very keen to drive himself and after a quick trip with John we got the ok to head off. we had a first stop for coffee in the coffee shop of oasis park and what a fab spot .it was lovely to see the little monkeys the other side of the glass while we chatted with John, he is a mine of information about the island but our chats did cover a wide range of topics in the course of the day :)we went from there up the mountains for lunch in a very pretty little village and then on to feed the chipmonks which I loved even if I closed my eyes for some of the trip back down(gulp) we then got to visit Johns fav girl in the goat farm :) and then a lovely trip back through the mountains and along the coast into caleta. it was a fabulous day and everything and more we hoped for .we left feeling like we made a new friend in John and would recommend everyone do it but def book the longer trips you will be sorry if you don't.

“Our 4th tour and definately not our last!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We had already done 3 tours but we still enjoyed this one as much as the first. Everyone involved is wonderful and very professional. There were 3 other trikes on the tour and we all got on well together which made a great day out. We always have a chauffer ( for which there is no extra charge!) Trevor drove us this time and he made us feel really comfortable. Thanks to you all once again. If you get the chance this is a must, you get to see the island in a way that you wouldn't normally do. Once again A big THANKYOU!

“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

We only did the two hour tour, this was great as it was a slightly drizzly day, unusual of for august but it didn't ruin the day at all, our guide was great and my only regret is "only" choosing the 2 hour tour.
Recommended for the fun factor

“WOW !! just amazing - awesome trip - best ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

this was our first visit to the canary island of Fuerteventura and our full day tour with 'Cool Runnings' simply rounded off a wonderful break away.
Myself and my mate David shared a wonderful day out on our tour with a lovely couple from Italy. A small and intimate tour of just two trikes made for an all more enjoyable day. Shaped more or less to things of our choosing. We chose to drive our own trike, well I enjoyed the views my mate enjoyed the driving. The other party choosing to have a guide driving. Our guide could not have been more helpful all. Very, very knowledgeable of the island, wildlife, history, topography, island culture and the each places we visited. We were lucky to be on the island the weekend of the pilgrimage to the center of the island for their religious festival. Tooting our horns at the walking pilgrims along the way and their smiles & acknowledgments were wonderful. Showing just how warm and welcoming the islanders are. We opted for the full package/day tour. Although on paper seeming a little on the expensive side initially, i can sincerely say it was worth every euro.
You wonder just how quick the day goes, once you are in the saddle and on the road from stop to stop just watching so many different different aspects of a all too beautiful landscapes. You really get to appreciate the beauty of the barren nature of the island the more you see of it. So many textures & colours to excite your senses as you travel the island. As i write this i appreciate the pace of the tour, recalling back it seems to just flow from one great stop to the next. effortless. Timing was very good. You never seem you are in the seat too long or too many stops every couple of miles. I could not recommend this tour more highly, such a wonderful day it left me with memories to last a lifetime. Although we were OK, i feel a few folk could feel the cold a bit on the this trip so bring a jumper/coat to keep the winds out, as you are a little exposed in place. Plenty of storage room on the back of the bikes should you wish to take it off. Before signing off a little advice to those going, i'm forever the planner/prepared we packed two nice large bottles of water and our sun cream before departing. 8 hours exposed in the sun and the permanent air con wind on you cooling you down could causes some people 'red lobster skin syndrome' after a full day out im sure.
With all the fresh air that gets in your lungs on the day it almost guarantees an amazing night of restful sleep. Despite doing the full island tour i would happily pay to do it all over again on my next return to Caleta. Superb 10/10 A+

Wow Paul thank you for your amazing review, it must have taken you ages to write that. I know Trevor said seeing all the people walking to Vega was a wonderful sight to see, makes you feel very humble that they walk all that distance. I must admit that the views from the north of the island are stunning. Thank you once again for your review, and we hope to see you again soemtime.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We did the four-hour tour, which was fab. Driver tuition beforehand did not eat into the four hours. Glad we did the 4 and not the 2 as we saw so much - chipmunks, cheese factory with goats and camels, lovely café. Drive up the mountains was particularly fun, but challenging, especially in light of 'the car' that was pointed out. Tour guides were brilliant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We did the tour with six other trikes and were lucky to have such a friendly group. Definitely recommended.

Hi Liz
Thank you for your great review, it´s great fun when there is a lot of trikes out in one go, they certainly turn a few heads as you go through the villages. So glad you liked the goat farm, its always good fun up there, my favourite bit is the honey rum. Hope to see you again.
