Hi - We have recently returned from an October holiday in Benidorm.
weather wasnt great so we looked at other activities and so we took the full day safari option and i must say it was 1 of the best activities we have done on a holiday.
we were a family of 5 aging from 7 - 45 and everyone enjoyed it immensely ( especially my 7 year old ).
Our driver was a chap from Holland called Dennis who spoke excellent english and was good fun and provided informative commentary.
we would highly recommend these guys.
Anthony and Family from England.

This is my 3rd time doing the jeep safari excursion with marco polo, it is really that good! You get to see parts of spain that you wouldn't normally see in the resort of benidorm. They take you away into the mountains on and off road driving, to the waterfalls of algar which are amazing! Ro the town of Guadalest and the experience is really good! The guys are amazing, ypu can have such a laugh with them, they make you feel involved in the group and have loads of knowledge! If you visit benidorm i highly recommend this excursion. I cant wait to do it again.

Had an excellent day, was enjoyed by our whole group.

Our guide was Farid (hope spelled right!) really nice guy, very informative about the area and great fun to travel with.

Felt comfortable with his driving at all times, visited great places.

Would definitely recommend booking a trip with Marco Polo

Thanks

Wonderful day out.Picked up prompt from hotel. We went to a waterfall which was very nice only downside is that there are lots of steps so I did not get to the high point as I don't walk very well but got down some of the steps to the cafeteria. Certainly worth a visit. Then we went up the mountain via some off road tracks though some small villages and had some lunch at one. After lunch we went further up the mountain where there were some wonderful views. Our driver Dennis had a great knowledge of the mountain tracks and was really friendly and that made a great day out. We booked the tour through TUI but you can probably find cheaper.

Good trip,not much room in back of Landrover and quite uncomfortable,for the price would have liked food included but overall worth doing.

We booked this thinking it might be a bit boring but it was something to do on the Sunday, we were very wrong it was an awsome trip all 9 of us loved every min, the guys who took is were great and very knowledgeable on the local area, we went through the mountains and the views were stunning. We had plenty of chances to take pictures which was nice, we stopped at a beautiful waterfall where we had a swim, water was lovely but freezing and very refreshing as it was 30 degrees. We then went through the mountains again with loads of bamboo wippng caused by the drivers, we had such a laugh all of us would highly recommend this tour when in Benidorm.

Hired six bikes for half a day,
Bikes were only visually inspected by Marco Polo while lined up outside before we were allowed to take them.
Very different story on our return , another chap seemed to take forever manually inspecting them , lots of wheel turning brake and gear checking etc etc.
Pity this was not done before we had taken them as three of them had issues, one had a knocking crank arm ,another’s gear shifter had to be continuously held in place by thumb or it went back into highest gear and the others suspension could not be tightened.
We had on puncture on the ride which required a tube change ,
We informed Marco Polo of this on our return and were charged 5euro ,
For not returning the bike as it had left the shop , ( with no puncture)
The problem you may have is they hold on to your passport as a deposit, so if they decide you have caused any problems with their bikes you will have no option but to pay what ever they decide you should pay . And as the contact does not mention any figures this will be whatever they decide.
SO BE WARNED.

Hello Harry, Friends and everybody who looks to hire a bicycle from us in Benidorm,

we would like to thank all our clients for putting their trust in Marco Polo Expediciones. Until Harry and Friends came, we had had 1205 bicycle rental contracts so far this year. We find it totally normal that after so many rentals there is some comment... But please be aware:
When you come to Marco Polo Expediciones you will have to sign a contract and it is your obligation to read it carefully and when receiving your bicycle point at possible issues. It's also more than normal that our clients should be honest, like telling the company about a puncture (WHICH HARRY AND FRIENDS ADVICES YOU NOT TO DO IN THE OTHER REVIEW ABOUT THE SAME THING).
Any decent bicycle, scooter or even car rental does not cover punctures; that's why we write very carefully about this in our contracts. It says that "4. Small damages caused by normal use will be repaired by the Marco Polo Expediciones mechanics without any cost. However, a small amount will be paid in case of puncture as mentioned in the office."
We indeed charge 5 euros which is the cost of a new Michelin inner tube in Spain and our office, without even our working time. Up till now, the vast majority of our clients have accepted it.
Mr Harry who told us he was a Police Officer and tried to get a discount during more than 15 minutes the day before renting the bicycles, obviously didn't agree with the 5 euros "fine".
SO BE WARNED EVERYBODY.

The bike hire is one to avoid. They hand out the bikes then check them meticulously on return, take your own photographs when collecting.
If you have a puncture, do not tell them. The signed contract says they can charge what ever they want and as they are holding your Passport, you have to pay!
I was charged £5 for a £2 inatube which I had changed, but they can charge whatever they feel like according to the contract.
A dodgy company, stay well clear.
