This trip was amazing! You're picked up near the hotel/apartment you staying and brought to safari Aitana en start you ride from there. they take the time to provide you with a bike that fits you as wel as the helmet. If anything is wrong with the bike, they just fix it for you immediately. during the ride down there are several stops with explainations and you can ask for a glass of water.
