Great trip with top guide!

We thought it might be too hot but a slight breeze off the water made conditions great. We saw lots of wading birds and learnt a little about the history and culture of the region while enjoying a decent bike ride and varying scenery. Me and my wife, who are bike riders but in our late 50s, strongly recommend this trip.

The meeting point was only at 8:30 a.m. and not at 8 a.m. as advertised in get your guide. The bikes were good, but the pace of the group was very slow. Maybe you could write out different levels. The guide did a good job. Compared to other tours (boat / jeep etc.), this one is expensive. Overall we had a great morning.

Pleasant walk

We appreciated the moderate effort, the airy area by the sea, the salt flats, the rare birds, the guide's explanations, The comfort of the bikes. On the other hand, the meeting point, could be in a slightly wilder area to enjoy your areas a little longer from the airport.

A great guide providing an amazing experience

A great trip. The guide Francisco was knowledgeable, very helpful and had a great sense of humour. I would thoroughly recommend this activity although the bikes could do with more servicing

Wild bike in the lagoons excellent

An atypical circuit not to be missed Breathtaking lagoons and landscapes Not to be missed
