Brilliant customer service and very friendly guide and bus driver. Got to see some beautiful parts of the island and find out information about each place you visited. If your looking for something to do I would highly recommend it. Be sure to take some cash with you

This excursion is an absolute must! My girlfriend and I did the slingshot 3 wheeler, Simon was our guide. This is by far the best way to see the island! An absolute blast, and the cars at 2.4 litres kick a real punch!

Great tour where you get to visit many interesting places on the island in one day. Plenty of time for pictures and conversations! Thank you Toñi & Charles for an amazing day! You were marvelous!

Fantastic guide, Roland, who spoke four languages with perfect accents. It was great to get out of the resorts and see more of the island. Pickup very close to hotel. Comfortable bus

The experience was really good , but it would be better if all the trikes were automatic, it was a little difficult, but would definitely do again, and our guide was brilliant
