Quad biking through the mountains of New Zealand was amazing. The views were stunning and driving through a wide range of scenery in the open air was like nothing I've experienced before. The tour begins at our awesome guide's (Nigel Thomas) home at the peak of a hill overlooking the city, countryside, strait/water... basically everything. It's amazing that such a... More

We did the half-day quad bike tour in January. So much fun. This was an absolute highlight of our 3-week NZ trip. The views along the trip were so awesome. Everything from amazing shoreline to tranquil valleys. And what a great route. We got to travel up and down steep hills, through mud pits, along the beach, through riverbeds. My... More

Awesome, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We took control of our own quad bikes for a 3 hour journey through the mountains of New Zealand, covering all terrains from farmland and forest, to rivers and rocks. The quad bikes were easy to drive, and felt safe to use, being able to go as fast or slow as you wanted. All equipment... More

My friend and I decided on the half-day quadbiking tour after reading about it on their website and TripAdvisor. Nigel the guide picked us up very promptly at our accommodation venue--maybe it's a Kiwi thing to be prompt and punctual--and took us to the site. We were pleasantly surprised to know that it would only be the two of us... More

We were collected from the ship & driven to the property 45 mins away & the views both on the way & at the property were spectacular. after lessons... More

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!
