We booked the 2 hour package, a quad each. We were picked up punctually at the agreed meeting point. After a short car ride we arrived at the "garage" were we got our helmets including a fresh scarf/towel for underneath the helmet - I liked that a lot :) We started driving right away. Nice scenery: easy paths, dunes, along the beach. After 1h we made a stop at a remote coffee shop above the cliff. It was our first quad experience, our guide made sure we felt comfortable with the speed, roads e.g. We enjoyed every minute.

Perfect ride along the beach at sunset. De horses are well fed amd well maintained. The ranch provides them with a great home and good care. They have horses for absolute beginners and people that have experience. A few dogs will happily join the group and there is also someone on foot to accompany the group and take some pictures for you. Definitely worth the money and your time. A must do.
