Decided to do something different for a shore excursion. Am 62 year old male with very little motor bike riding experience. Picked up from ship by Nigel with 11 other cruisers for 45 minute journey to his property just outside Wellington. After initial practice to show you can handle the bike, we headed off for a fantastic tour of the... More

My husband and I went on a half day quadbiking tour when our cruise ship docked in Wellington. I can't drive a manual car and was a bit panicky about having to use gears on the bike and driving up and down all those steep, slippery hills. I couldn't have been more wrong! Nigel was fantastic and very patient with... More

I say Boys, but girls and children above 13 (I think) can enjoy this fantastic outing. We had gone down for the Rugby and where looking for something to do on the Sunday before flying home. What a great choice we picked. Nigel had all the gear for us and expert training was given before we headed off. The views... More

I had a bad experience with AVIS car rental. During a trip, exceeded the speed limit and got fine from police of 30 dollars. AVIS charged me extra 34 dollars for their costs. I contacted them about their cost but they didn't bother replying and took the money from my credit card. Not happy and won't be using them again

My husband went Quad biking for his 50th birthday, although it was raining and the weather was generally miserable. Nigel provided wet weather gear and off they went. My husband came back absolutely exhilarated, had a fantastic time and intends going again when we return to NZ later this year. Recommended without hesitation!

Low clouds, fog, sleet and strong winds could not discourage the excitement and exhilaration of tearing along across the top of the world. Shame the clouds were low as no doubt the views would be awesome, but luckily it meant I could keep my sights on the track. Being an avid 4WDer and motorcycle rider, quad biking was a blend... More

This is the second time I have participated in the half day quad biking trip and this time around was just as exciting, well run and exhilirating as the first time. One of the best experiences in my life. Both times we were picked up by Nigel from our hotel in Wellington. The ride is approximately 35 minutes and especially... More

Went to the tourist office & booked a day trip. Our Guide was Stewart & he was super.He took us in a van rather than the usual coach which meant he could drive many places the bigger coaches could not.He took us right around the coast , up to the highest peak which had amazing views he also took us...

We went quad bike riding while docked in Wellington on a cruise. The day was windy and rainy with low clouds (the quad bike riding is in the hills) but it just made the day all that more interesting and challenging. The property and riding track was amazing - from alpine hills in the clouds to the inevitable mud and... More

We went on the half day tour. It was brilliant! I haven't ever really ridden a quad before but the training was excellent and my confidence was soon built up. I wouldn't have believed I could have done what we did, but I did! The views were amazing, it was really well organised, the food was simple and delicious. It... More
