Super good activity! Remember a backpack and water. Note, in our case the meeting place was not the one stated on GetYourGuide. We had to call a number on one of the brochures that was on the table by the pavilion and then had to drive to a new place (luckily we had a car) about 5 minutes The guides were really nice and spoke good English. The route is long and you get REALLY dirty. REMEMBER a change of clothes and water to rinse off with. We didn't get the opportunity to bathe, otherwise it would have made it a little easier to get rid of the dust. In addition, of course, you must also remember plenty of sunscreen

Great fun long trip! There is a lot of driving on the road but seeing the villages we drove through and the grapevines were worth it. The meeting point on get your guide is wrong. It is a bit past the Gorge and entrance on your right. You drive by a bunch of ATVS. You do not need to bring a change of clothes unless when you’re done you want to get out of your dusty clothes. They do provide an air pressure gun to help get the dust off. Bring water bottles and a backpack to put your stuff in.

Very nice it was a very complete the guide was very careful with us and very helpful. The advise to wear swim clothes is accurate but you should also wear clothes that you don't care about because the road is very dusty haha. Very nice, very complete walk, the team was very attentive and attentive. The recommendation to wear swimming shorts is justified but also think about wearing clothes so you don't have to worry as the road is very dusty
