What a wonderful first ATV experience! My fiancé and I each had our own ATVs to drive and I was initially nervous---however, the Rancho Notorious staff made sure I was comfortable before we left and checked in throughout the 4 hour adventure. There were only 4 people on our tour (plus 1 guide), which made for an intimate tour where... More

We loved our ATV tour! Our guide, Harry, was friendly, fun, and informative. It was our first times on ATVs and we felt super comfortable. Highly Recommended!

He was very friendly and engaging. When we got Rancho Notorious, Geert our main tour guide gave us a brief... More

My very large group of friends (12) went on a 4 hour ATV tour with Maxamillion and Geert. I have to say that the trip wast truly wonderful. Rancho Notorious was the least expensive of all the other companies but by far the best. We visited so many different places and learned so much about the island. I would definitely... More

Rancho Notorious was not our first choice for a group excursion. We tried to book with another company through the travel desk at Manchebo. Their website had one price and when we called the price more than doubled. Sandra from Machebo called around and no one would accommodate a group of 12. Until she called Rancho Notorious, and I am... More

Great experience! Gert was also a very helpful and knowledgeable tour guide. The sight-seeing was spectacular and history of the island was vast.

The Quad tour was amazing...the views were awesome. Geert (our tour guide) knows everything about the island and really makes the tour fun. If it's your first quad tour, definitely book with Rancho Notorious!

Upon arrival you will get a glimpse of their farm including their baby pig dog. It is a very welcoming ranch. Once you get paired a horse you will trailed for about 30 minutes in... More
