I loved this. The quads are big and the track is challenging as some tracks are quite steep. i have never ridden a quad however, and although i was nervous, i learned quickly. The instructors are very helpful and were very nice to us. It was more than worth the money. 95 dollars for the shortest track which took us... More

Save your quad bike adventure for more professional outfits in Queenstown or Kaikoura NZ. these tracks are very scenic as well. This track is boring & overgrown with dangerous blackberry bushes & vines, tyres on bikes no tread, no goggles supplied, brakes not adjusted or working properly, guides do not care about safety although they make loud statements at the...

1. They don't sort the riders by speed so you can end up behind a very slow rider for most of the time. 2. A 2 hour ride is based on average rider speeds. We completed it in less than 1.5 hours including lengthy stops. Actual riding time was less than an hour. 3. Their safety policy is to have... More

I was lucky enough to go with a group from work. I have ridden motorcycles before but only once of twice 4 wheelers. I didn't like going down one of the steep hills and froze but one of the lovely girls walked down with me and I was away after that. We came to another tricky bit and the guys... More

Me and my friend did a two hour quad bike tour which was incredible. In my opinion, being from the UK, this is probably one of the only places you can ride a quad unrestricted at your own pace. No restrictions or over mothering here but you need to ride within your limits as they tell you! My friend rolled... More

They've got some great quad bike tracks through the bush which can be challenging but even novice riders going at their own pace are able to enjoy.

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
