I had been planning the quad excursion with East Coast Rides for about 12 months as we were on a bit of a celebration holiday. Steve & Ceri kept in touch via e-mail, and took the booking with no hesitation.

Well what can I say, AWESOME. The quads are mechanically sound, and Steve will guide you through all the controls, and take you out for a short trip around Caleta, just to make sure you feel comfortable and able to ride them.

We did the 2 hour trip, which was about 99.9% off road. Some fantastic scenary, and a little bit of climbing and before you know it you have a smile from ear to ear. My other half decieded she didnt want to ride, so she came as pillion passenger, and loved it. Steve will go at the pace that you feel comfortable with so dont worry if you have never ridden a quad, but if you want to "make some progress" then he will accomodate this also.

With some tours and excursions you can feel like you have to wait for the rest of the group to catch up, but not here, Steve will keep the groups really small which is easier to manage and to ensure you get to have fun and enjoy the sites rather than starting and stopping every five minutes. When you stop to admire the views its so peaceful and quiet you could hear a pin drop, a very scerene setting.

Just remember its not a race or a time trial, and that its very dusty. Steve will give you plenty of warning if there are any obsticles or terrain changes well in advance, just drop back enough so the dust clears, dont worry about Steve, he's always watching you to keep you safe.

As the other reviewers say it is a blast, and quite possibly the highlight of your holiday!!!

Thank you Ceri for helping with the directions oops.

Hope to see you soon guys.

Hey guys, what can I say...Thanks for the fantastic review. I´m really glad you enjoyed it after all the effort it took for you to find us!
It´s always a pleasure taking enthusiastic and experienced guys such as yourselfs out and it was a fitting end to us as a business as we have now closed the quad side of East Coast Rides to concentrate on the scooter and motorcycle rental side of the business. Make sure you pop in and say hello when you are over next year.

Cheers
Steve & Ceri.

WARNING
DON’T LIKE FUN!
DON’T WANT A SMILE A MILE WIDE!
DON’T WANT TO SEE STUFF YOU DON’T NORMALLY SEE ON TOURS!
THEN DON’T READ ANY FURTHER!
IF YOU DO - THEN READ ON
BETTER STILL GET ON DOWN TO EAST COAST TOURS.
BOOK A GUIDED QUAD TOUR OR HIRE A BIKE.

Having recently had the experience and fun of a 3 hour EAST COAST QUAD TOUR that will be fresh in our memories for years to come.
We read most of the comments on here when we arrived home and they say a huge amount about the East Coast Rides team and experience.
We were greeted with a smile and an informative chat (no hard sell). Sold - quad tour booked.
Steve has an abundance of island knowledge and is a thoroughly good bloke and one of life’s characters you meet and will not forget in a hurry his zest for life shines through when you speak with him and even more so when on the tour.
The quad tour was so immense fun – taken to places which you would never get to on a bus trip/coach tour , and gave us a greater feel for the island, so much better than just lazing by the swimming pool .
The following day we went back and hired a 125 scooter from East coast rides to get more of a taste of the island (cheaper than a car, with natural air conditioning!) And was given the local guide map on which he drew a suggested route on to some lovely roads and places to visit and panoramic views.
So if you are in or going to Fuerteventura and can get on down to East Coast Rides a quad tour is definite recommendation for a fun and informative outing.
Or just hire a scoot or bike and ask for a route.
A highly recommended day (or two) can be had.
Thanks to the East Coast Rides Team.
