Guides were extremely friendly and really knew what they were doing. I'd never driven a quadbike before, but the guides taught us quick and it was a lot fun. The Laguna Huaypoo was very beautiful, calm and serene. The Maras salt mines were truly a sight to behold. While riding the quads, you're going to get very dusty, so make sure you wear clothes you're willing to get dirty, even though at the end, they dust you off with a compressed air hose.

Very good instructors and a very complete tour. They care a lot about your safety and are very compliant with the schedule and everything that the tour offers.

Really fun experience with beautiful views! Don't wear nice clothes because they will get dusty!!
