I went to Gran Canaria in October 2014 for a week, me and my partner love Jeep Safari's. We have previously been on Jeep Safari's in Tenerife, Benidorm & loved them especially in Benidorm as the surrounding area of Costa Blanca is beautiful, we now went on one in Gran Canaria which was a HUGE let down. I wasn't sure... More

This is the single worst trip I have ever been on! On the day the weather was foul but they still insisted the trip could be done and described all the wonderful things we would see.... Only to be told at various intervals that they now would not do what was promised. I feel robbed! A full day trip become... More

I usually enjoy 4x4 safari style jeep tours.. but this was a huge let down. Based on previous good experiences on similar excursions, I took the plunge and paid the 200+ euro for the day out with zig-zag. The day started chaotically, the staff overbooked tours and were turning people away.. unbelievable. I suppose our early arrival secured our ride... More

I love the jeeps! This is my 5th time doing them. You get filthy dirty on this one in gran canaria. Steve was a great laugh he was good with the kids. I did the camels and that was great I had lots of fun. The camels do just drop their front legs when it's time to get off but... More

We booked the 4x4 experience for my family based on the Thomson welcome meeting presentation and the photography’s in the Thomson trips presentation booklet. We were told we would be in safari type open air jeeps. However after arriving at the meeting point we were aware that the fleet was very mixed with Zig Zag. Unfortunately we were allocated the...

Zig Zag jeep safari was brilliant and we'll worth the money we paid for it. The island is beautiful and we saw its plants and land. We went of road for about 20 mins and by god did we get destroyed is dust and sand. It's definitely not suitable for people who hate bumpy rides and getting dirty. The only... More

We booked the trip through our travel agent @ £51 per adult which included lunch and the camel ride. We were picked up at 8.30 from our resort and taken to the main meeting place. We eventually got going at around 10ish. We head off into the hills in the jeeps and shortly after, stopped for a team briefing. This... More

Did this a a combo which included dolphin trip and camel ride, take a bandanna, or buy one in the camel park, you will come off it looking like you were on the set of The Good the Bad and the Ugly. It lasts a few hours and takes you well off road on what sometimes seems like a goat... More

we were a family of 6 on this Safari. The cost is high at over €260 but it is good value for the money. You really get to see the island and the off road bit was real heart in the mouth stuff. Just hold on tight! The lunch of chicken, coleslaw and mojo potato was really very good. Free... More
