We were told this was a trip to drive dune buggies on the beach and finish with a swim in a cave. Spent the majority of the time driving on paved roads dodging construction vehicles and other vehicles.

Beach drive was less than 200 yards on beaten path to park buggies. Our 20 minutes at the beach was less than 10 most of which we spent telling vendors no.

We were not told about stop at cocca house. Would have rather spent that time on beach or in cave.

Not much swim time in cave. Got to jump in and then we were rushed to steps to get out. Once again we were harassed by vendors.

Overall entire experience was a huge disappointment. It was poorly run extremely overcrowded and extremely unsafe. We would not recomended to anyone.

The boogies or dune buggies are truly fun! I'd recommend this for anyone with kids that are 10 and up. You ride, swim at a beach, take a tour of a coffee place and take a dip in a cave.

A tip for travelers - they'll try to sell you sunglasses and a handkerchief for the dust, which is sort of necessary if you are riding in the front two seats. If you can, bring your own - price gauging at it's worst. $5 for a bandana. Sunglasses vary from $10 up.

The tour will stop at Macao Beach, Coffee Beans shop and cave. Good 1.5 - 2 hrs trip and pretty fun with kids. A lot of solicitors at each stop. Make sure you are wearing dirty clothers because you will ride by the muddy road.

The trail is excellent however the ATVs are not well maintained. My ATV stalled and got a flat. Another person in my group had his ATV stall 9 times!! We had someone scrape their leg while trying to get in the truck that picks you up from the hotel. The stepping is to high for most people. The worst thing of all was our friend who's ATV would not turn or stop causing her to run into pole and wire fence. She had to be taken to the hospital there where she received 5 stitches and a tetanus shot however the tour guide told us she had a minor scratch. When she got home and the American hospital told her she had a flesh eating bacteria and they had to take serious measures! Another person in our group fell off her ATV and the seat came apart. Our tour was cut short because of all the break downs from the ATV. Bring your own bandana and sunglasses or pay $5 for a $1 bandana and $20 dollars for a $2 pair of sunglasses. The video is a waste of money as well. we got the video and pictures and they were pretty much the same. One of the best parts was stopping at Macao beach.
