My husband and I first went to Taupo Quads in February 2014. Wasn't sure what to expect, but was later very pleasantly surprised at the mega-fun we had. John was our guide at the time and he took us through twists and turns, mud and wet! It was GREAT!!!!!!! So, after the first experience, we went back again and took... More

We took our 2 teenage children here, none of us had riden a quad bike before and it was their favourite activity in NZ. John was excellent, we were free to ride at our own pace through beautiful rainforest on real challenging mud tracks, even ducking branches! It was so much better than we'd imagined. Jackets, pant & boots are... More

We had a small group of 5, our family of 3 (12 year old boy) and young couple. John was brilliant as I was very nervous but needed to prove mum could do it. He worked with our levels gave the boys a big of headway whilst also looking out for me and the other young girl. Half hour in... More

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

I stumbled upon this place 5 years ago and had a blast! Back again to have another go with family who have never touched a quad and we all had such a great time. The guys really take care of you and tailor this to your needs. I would recommend that everyone books in with these guys and enjoy the... 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
