What an amazing experience! We took our four children between 9 & 13. We all had so much fun! Jose was our guide he was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed for an unforgettable day. We definitely recommend this for those looking something to remember for years to come! I would recommend you hire the shoes you need proper footwear that you don’t mind swimming with. Jose recommended Rufino restaurant in Benahavis afterwards as you definitely work up an appetite.

Super delicious trip !! It can clearly be recommended. It is a trip where most people with a good physique can easily join but where you are also challenged accordingly

Excellent instructor, good cquipment . Children 8 and 15 enjoyed the visit as did the 80 year old grandfather who did not quite have the energy required --5 star .

Wonderful trip of almost 4 hours on a perfectly fine eMTB through non-technical off road paths. Minimal, condition is desirable

Really well organised and such fun. Would highly recommend the activity
