Had the best time ever. Little nervous at first as we’ve never rides quad bikes before but the instructors were great and we knew we were in safe hands. The sand dunes were absolutely amazing, they just went for miles and miles. The weather was pretty dismal but I think that added to the fun! We couldn’t keep the smiles from our faces!!! Such a great experience. Would recommend it to anyone with a bit of adventure in them!!

Amazing time spent on sand dune, there are a few professionals following you so it will be a great experience for first time quad bikers. They are really nice and helpful as well!
