Starting the day off inexperienced in Dirt Biking, and with the rain creating muddy trails and tracks, this combination suggested we could be in for a long day. However, Merv (tour guide) was very helpful and cheerful in teaching and directing us throughout the day....More

I'm an average rider from Sweden who had a great time today. Booked an hour tour on "bookme" for 105$, upgraded my bike for 40$ though. Everything was great, only wish I'd taken an 1,5 or 2 hour ride instead.
