We went on 3 trips, The East Island, The Ultimate and the Evening BBQ and they were all great. I would happily do any of the trips again and recommend Richard and Jen to all.

Hi, I've seen lots of reviews for you guys all good ones. me and my partner are in Boa Vista from the 6th July for 10 nights. Very interested in the quad biking. Do you need a full driving license or is a provisional fine? I've driven quads on farms etc just don't have a full license

I'm unsure tbh but Richard and Jen are best people to contact
Can I pay by credit card? Assumed online booking would allow this given fee, though states 'pay cash on day'. Not carrying enough euro/sterling/local for all trips I want to book.
