This tour is for anyone who loves to have a go, who loves the adrenalin rush of something different, for everyone who loves that sense of achievement when they have triumphantly made it to the end of the route.
The buggies are sometimes known as frame cars. They travel lower than their counterpart quad bikes, and passenger and driver sit side by side, as opposed to one behind the other. Because they travel lower they can appear to be travelling faster than the quads, though this is not the case. They inevitably make for a fun ride through one of Turkey’s loveliest regions.
