At first I wasn't happy with the customer service as they had moved our booking forward 30 mins and neglected to tell us, also had cancelled our 2 hour ride so we only had 1 hour to ride. Mistakes aside the ride was really fun, there's heaps of hills and mud to ride through and you can ride at your... More

A half hour drive north of Taupo is where you’ll find Taupo Quad Adventures. Once again in New Zealand style, it’s amazing what some smart-minded land owners can do with a limited space and some natural rainforest. John and Jo have pretty much carved out custom made quad bike tracks that are wild and enjoyable. What they do really well... More

Many places govern their quad bikes to limit the speed and driving of the participants. This place is not one of them! The owners were extremely down to earth, willing to speak and share what was on their mind, and brought us on an awesome two hour drive through some NZ bush. Thank you!

We went out for the 1 hour trip which we thought maybe a little short at first, but loved every second of it! The guide was really helpful and taught you everything you need to know, you then do a practice run altogether, and then you are free to follow the track at your own pace! A great tour for... More

We did the hour adventure and had experienced and inexperienced riders in our group. We were free to go at our own pace which meant that everyone had their needs met. The countryside was beautiful and the ride offered a combination of easy and more challenging tracks. A fun, value for money activity for the whole family.

My partner surprised me with a 2 hour trip for our 10 year anniversary. We started off on a small track to get the hang of the bike. We rode on seperate quads and as time went on we became more confident and got the hang of it. On the day it was raining, we were provided with rain jackets,... More

Did the 1 hour trip with my partner and we both loved it. Love the way the tour is operated with the guide letting everyone travel at their own pace and basically leaving you to make your way through the marked track. Especially appreciated the guides attitude to my partner who had never done this before - she was apprehensive... More

The pamphlets do not do this place justice...I've been quad biking in a number of countries and this was by far the best, by a long shot. We went out for an hour quad biking and after a brief introductory ride, we were then fully immersed in the NZ bush, riding an undulating track that is both challenging and exhilarating.... More

Our third return to an incredible experience. It's a thrilling ride for the teens but good for us mums who like to take it slower too! You can leave the fearless to ride at their own level and know they are in the trusted hands of staff who make you feel completely comfortable and supported. We've done this now in... More
