Excellent experience. Booking for 6 and each of us loved it. Well organised and the route is a combination of off road and connecting main roads. Sufficiently challenging off road so you feel like you have had a decent ride, but nothing too difficult. Would highly recommend this trip, keen to do something similar again soon.

Great tour, well worth the money. Tour Guides were good too. Lovely ride through the tracks with some lovely scenic views.
