Such an amazing day! We had a really nice gentleman leading us on our quad trail and he even got everyone some local Kinnie to enjoy to celebrate ours and another couples engagement which was really thoughtful. Such a scenic trail and we enjoyed stopping off at the sea cave where we had time to take a swim. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an interesting way to tour Gozo.
