Great ride, but not for a beginner. It's more technical than strenuous. A lot of downhill, so go slow if you don't feel comfortable with speed. The views from the top of the mountain are breath-taking. Remember to bring a water bottle and some snacks to keep up your energy. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was a full day of events. It was nice to have a driver for the ruins. You do not want to walk around that whole area.
