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

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

The day we visited Wellington it was cold and windy, which we were advised is the norm for the place, we went for a day trip to the wild coast and entrance to the Wellington Harbour, it was not what we expected but the rough and wild coastline could be seen just about anywhere in the world and compared to...

My husband and I went on a half day tour. Even though he had been on a quad bike previously, I hadn't and was extremely happy with the training the guides taught. I'm a bigger gal and wasn't sure how I'd go riding the quads but found they can be ridden by anyone of any size or height! The guides... More

This was definitely the best organised your I have ever done. The bikes were well taken care of, the safety gear kept well and the tracks and trails were just awesome. Even the fresh picnic that was packed for us was one of the best meals I had over in nz... Thank you so much for such a great day.

When my husband first suggested going quad biking, I wasn't too excited. I'm not exactly experienced on quads. But, much to my surprise, with the expert tutoring provided by our wonderfully patient guide, I challenged myself and did really great!! And I'm so happy I did. The views from the top of the mountain were nothing less than spectacular, and... More
