Highly recommend if you like the outdoors and you don't need to be an expert off-road driver, if you can drive an automatic car then your all good to go.

As someone who does lots of outdoor activities I'm used to being excited and impressed with beautiful scenery and addicted to adrenaliane.
If you’re going to do only one adrenaline activity, I recommend this one!It’s outdoors, you are physically active, more or less challenging depending on who you are, but you can definitely feel 100% safe.

Everything was organised for us brilliantly.Great experience and recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
