Eine wirklich tolle Quad-Tour, die unsere Erwartungen übertroffen hat. Wir hatten das Glück die Tour nur mit einem weiteren Paar und dem Guide zu machen und hatten sehr viel Spaß. Die Strecke war abwechslungsreich, der Guide hat seinen Job super gemacht und wir hatten an einigen Stellen einen Fotostop gemacht mit fantastischer Aussicht. Ein weiteres Highlight war der unplanmäßige Halt bei der lokalen Olivenöl Produktionsfabrik. Die Anlagenfahrer haben uns netterweise reingebeten, dem Guide und uns das Verfahren erklärt und uns sogar kosten lassen. Sehr sehr gastfreundlich, wir haben es sehr genossen und können diese Tour jedem nur weiter empfehlen!

È stata davvero una esperienza indimenticabile! Prima volta su un quad per me e la mia fidanzata, fortunatamente abbiamo avuto una guida che ci ha messo subito a nostro agio con il mezzo e il gruppo(4 coppie in totale). Un percorso di tre ore(noi abbiamo scelto quello dalle 18:15 alle 21:15) tra le strade di montagna alla scoperta del villaggio fantasma, con viste mozzafiato al tramonto. Davvero consigliato!!
