What to expect on the tours

The 1 hour tour is a teaser, you won't believe just how much fun you are having because just as you are craving more, the hour goes by so fast. Which holds true to the old adage saying, time flies when you are having fun! The tour starts in Progreso Lakes and takes you to the Toluca Ranch property. The house and chapel date back to the 1860's. The ranch was established in 1880 by Florencio Saenz which local folklore has it that he sold his soul to the devil in order to gain wealth and prosperity. It is said that the house is haunted and today you can take haunted tours at the ranch. There is definitely an eerie ora to the place that is sure to give you goose bumps. From Toluca Ranch, the tour leads you south to the banks of the Rio Grande River, where you will travel about 5 miles along the river. At one point, you will go through a trail that runs parallel with the National Wildlife Refuge conservation land where you have the opportunity to spot local wildlife. Although it might prove difficult to spot any wildlife with all the rumble of the ATV's but you never know you might get lucky. You will definitely be taken back by the beauty of the land and just how peaceful and relaxing it feels to get out and ride.

The two and three hour tours take you from Progreso Lakes over to Mercedes, Texas, where if you like to get muddy you are sure to encounter some famous local "mud pits" that will get you the full experience of what it is to drive a 4x4 vehicle.
