Were 4 hours on the road and was over again so quickly. It was a lot of fun and it was very nice! Got a map from the guide in which he marked the most beautiful views of the island that we could reach in no time. Everything went well and without any problems. I would recommend the tour in a group and the guide together. Driving alone on the streets with the choppers was a bit dangerous and with the guide the destinations would be better and faster to reach. Nevertheless it was a great adventure which will be remembered for a very long time :). Would definitely do it again.

It was a success. I never rode an electric chopper, which made the experience even more fun. It is a highly recommended way to visit the Maspalomas area. Very well advised by the staff in charge of the activity.

The scooters are easy to operate. Was also explained great. Very friendly!! We have booked 3 hours is easily enough to comfortably drive the tour shown.

Super arranged. Top guidance. As a newby myself from the start I was made to feel comfortable. Recommended!

Excelent service, nice gide, very interesting visit to cofey plantation.
