Punctual pickup, good condition of the buggy, very good guide (Trevor) explained everything very well. A quite sporty driving style (I drive enduro myself as a hobby) was possible, whether you drive alone or in pairs does not matter for the price (not cheap but worth the price). Small group, one guide buggy and two customer buggies. Driving time a little longer than stated, a few snacks and drinks were included. I would book with this provider again at any time.
