My husband and I booked this trip a few weeks before we travelled, slightly apprehensive as we are more mature and thought it would be more suitable for younger people,but, we enjoyed it. A few things to add, there are a couple of money making extras, such as bandanas to keep dust out of your nose and mouth (€4 each-take a scarf or something similar), the Animal park is dreadful, dirty and sad looking creatures, it was classed as a zoo, and if we had known how bad it was, we wouldn't have paid the €2 each to visit. The lunch break was very long and although the food nice , we felt it was prolonged just to get more drinks and we felt a bit pressured to pay for a DVD of photos taking during the trip (to be fair it would be incredibly hard to take decent ones yourself as moving in the jeep all the time ),also we visited Mangavat waterfall, pretty , but had to pay entry (about 2€ each) , shops and snack bars offering ice creams, etc , so take more money if this your thing .
I recommend this activity. It was a nicely spent day during my vacation. But I have few comments: be prepared to be constantly photographed. We felt like models on set. I understand the try to sell photos but that was to much. The zoo - few tired animals, just avoid it. Bring drinking water & your own bandana. Other than that - great day.
Price was good for the amount of time driving, our buggy was a little underpowered but still fun, we got very dirty but we were laughing, transfers were quick and on time. Lovely views all the way around. Quite a lot of stopping to allow the convoy to catch up but we didn't mind. Considering the price we would recommend.
There was a bit of waiting around at the start without any one telling you what's happening. Definitely something these excursions lack and thats commincation with the people they are meant to entertain/host etc. However the quad biking was super fun.. very dirty and dusty so be prepared.
Amazing experience. Guide was friendly and helpful. Did jeep safari first which was bit scary but we really enjoyed it. Rafting experience was best accompanied by lunch. I feel lunch could be little better but in this price it was not bad at all . Overall it was good value for money.
