I did the Tauran day tour by bicycle. This was Epic riding! As we were a small fit group we did a lot more extensions on the route, more off roading, through jungle along old tracks. The scenery was beautiful. It is HOT! Bring lots of sun screen and wear long t-shirts if possible. The lunch was very delicious. The bicycles were in good nick. Our guide Alex had a wonderful sense of humour and very interactive.
