I am very pleased. The man from the bike rental is very nice and takes care of everything so that it fits. I was glad that I got rental bikes for children because this is always very difficult. The shop is very well located 10 minutes to Playa del Ingles about 10 minutes to the Dunas de Maspalomas. Can't recommend it warmly, hence 5 stars.

Zgan scooter and helmets, nice owners and clear explanations for a beautiful route. Recommended! Tip: Don't forget your driver's license and passport/ID
