Very good quality buggy. Everything is well arranged. You will be picked up, in advance you will have contact via whatsapp. You have a clear explanation on the spot about how or what. Take a scarf with you, if you don't have one, you can buy 1 on the spot for a few euros. They speak good English.

Absolutely fabulous fun! Our guide was amazing and all the staff polite and professional. Picked up and dropped off at hotel on time. Kit was top notch and the buggy’s surprisingly robust! Scenery breath taking. Done this before in another country and have to say this was the best yet. Didn’t stop laughing! My arse was battered. Thank you for the amazing memories x
