The reason for my poor review is for safety reasons. My husband and son could have bee severely injured or worse because of the safety conditions of these ATVs. The trip itself is great fun, as the other reviews state. The problem is that the ATVs are transferred from hotel to hotel in Antigua and are not being checked for safety issues by experienced mechanics.

My husband and eleven year old son were coming down the mountainside on March 30 on one of the ATVs. I had both sets of my brakes fully engaged because of the steep grade of the road, and I was still going at a rapid speed. My husband and son were behind me, but eventually passed me on one of the roads, and as they passed my husband yelled something to me which I was unable to hear. The next thing I knew they were going full speed to the end of the road, which made a sharp turn, but they were not turning or slowing down. They then shot up a dirt path, which was like a runaway path, and the ATV eventually slowed, but then it started going backward and also started to tip to the right because they were sloped to the right. I thought they were doomed to roll off and have the ATV roll over them, but by the grace of God the ATV managed to stabilize as my husband leaned to the left. My husband dismounted and got my son off the machine, but they were very rattled.

In the meantime, the rest off the group was already down the mountainside. My husband reported to me that his left brake had completely failed and he was unable to stop the ATV. They were blessed that the dirt slope was at the end of that road section. If it had been the next switchback they would have run off the road to their death because there was nothing to stop traffic at the end of the next pass.

It was an awful experience and rattled my son for the rest of the day. I eventually went down the mountain to retrieve the guide, who then went up and switched ATVS with my husband. The guide handled the situation very well and was completely respectful and professional. His name was Minor. He deserves a lot of credit. The owner of the company is from the US and needs to upgrade his/her vehicles.

I just want people to be aware of the condition of these ATVs and the danger involved in taking this trip. It is fun and beautiful, but please understand that these roads are steep and the ATVs are not in the best condition.

We were met at our hotel with the ATV's and left from there, which was very convenient. We had a wonderful day exploring sites and Mayan villages around Antigua. The guides were helpful and patient. It was a great activity because our whole family, from our children to the grandparents, could go together.

Freddy was an incredible tour guide. He is fun, interactive and full of knowledge. I never felt rushed in any way and enjoyed every single stop. My daughter and I shared a 4 wheeler and I have to say, that really was fun because it allowed us to talk while riding to the next stop. I highly recommend Antigua Mountain Tour.... Thanks guys for a really fun time!
