Bumpy ride
framore2738, Dec 2021
We went around the island in 2.5 hrs. We saw a water hole and some bison. Mike was descriptive in his commentary.
Loud Bumpy Ride
Jim_W, Dec 2021
I generally do not share my trips. Do Not Go on this Trip! Audio from driver was horrible and could not understand anything he was saying. The driver advised us to pull a lever overhead if we wanted him to stop. Between the Speed and Bumps, it would have been a Challenge.
Great way to see the island

We had a lot of fun. Our guide was great and we enjoyed seeing a couple bison and a fox. It was a nice stop at the airport for a quick bite to eat.
The driver was a nice...

The driver was a nice guy, but he drove too fast, and it felt more like a roller coaster ride, and therefore, it was hold to relax and enjoy the experience.
Fun tour -- bumpy but fun!!!
Justin_M, Oct 2021
More than we thought it would be! We did see almost 10 bison -- not close up, but they were definitely there basking in the sun! The tour guide made sure to give us plenty of time to zoom in our pictures. He was a great driver -- a little difficult to understand, but oh well -- he kept us safe, very entertained, and he had so many historical facts of the island. Definitely worth the cost of the tour!!! p.s., it's a bumpy ride but fun! Even though it was bumpy and a dusty narrow road, we felt very safe with this professional!

Don’t do it!!
Margaret_M, Oct 2021
Tour guide was awful. Could not understand half of what he said. Was disappointed that the trip took us to the airport and back. I would’ve thought it would’ve been more to the tour I was especially interested in seeing the Wrigley gardens. It also was VERY uncomfortable. It felt like being in a truck without shocks.

Wouldn’t suggest it
Jaime_F, Sep 2021
You could not understand guide. Very uneventful the price was not worth experience. I was disappointed.
Safari trip
SARAH_F, Aug 2021
No animals to be seen! To call this trip a safari is a bit of a stretch and is quite misleading. It’s a bumpy ride and not what I was expecting. Tour guide was very cool and had a great attitude.
Safari that never happened
William_M, Jun 2021
When we arrived we were told the open air vehicle pictured would be replaced by a 15 year old van with tinted windows that don’t open, and would be making only one stop. We declined and asked for a refund. Other tours were booked solid for the day so we missed out. l-(

Awesome and fun!

The safari tour was great! The drive, the views, and the commentary from the guide was great! The ride in that huge vehicle was in it self such a crazy, cool experience!
