Doras a gem!

We booked this as an activity more for my husband, however Dora was an amazing guide and teacher for myself as a complete beginner! My confidence on the quad grew quickly over our trip as she constantly encouraged and assured me i was doing well! Also what an experience to quad through some awesome rainforests and down the river bed. We loved it so much and would do it again in a heartbeat! Well worth the money we spent! Thanks Dora!
