Three of us joined the trip, it was 7 buggies and the tour leader in total, not having done it before we chose the shorter trip which went off-road up to Fataga, and to the reservoir, it lasted about 3 hours in total.
Some other reviews moan about the fact the "lunch" is only a sandwich, but come on, you aren't there to enjoy a 3 course meal, you are there to DRIVE and enjoy the scenery, go for a proper lunch when you get back if you are that bothered, and also that it's expensive.. Well yes, but they have to earn a living, pay for the equipment and petrol, and storage site, the fun things in life aren't free you know, and the UK / Euro exchange rate doesn't help either!
We had great fun, got very dusty, so wearing old jeans & t-shirt is recommended, they supply you with a bandana for your face and big eye goggles, but this is the most fun you can have with your clothes on!
It's a real hoot, you get away from the tourist trash of Playa del Ingles and into the real (dusty) countryside and through a couple of interesting villages on the way. It's not a wildlife trip, it's mainly DRIVING and a couple of stops to enjoy the scenery with a bit of background history chucked in while you eat your (sandwich) lunch! Don't go expecting a nature tour!!!!
We really enjoyed our trip, and though a little expensive now the exchange rate with the UK Pound has changed, we intend to go on the longer full day trip next time we are over despite it being pretty expensive at about £100 for a single person buggy for the long trip.
This trip is recommended if you want to do something different, have a sense of fun, don't mind getting dusty, and aren't too posh to eat a plain old sandwich for lunch, lol!!!
I'd give it 10/10 for fun, 7/10 for price!
