Wow -- we all loved it (20 year old daughter, wife, and I). Alistair was a great guide, but the beauty of the land, the fun of riding all over their farm, the seals when we got to the ocean cliffs, riding through a stream, the sheep, lamb, cows, and calves was fabulous. It was all great. Fantastic fun. The... More

My wife and I spent a very memorable afternoon at Glenstrae. It began with them making a "special" 3pm edition just to accomodate us, and then continued with a very professional and caring service. The views along the path are ABSOLUTELY stunning and vary all along the way. Perhaps our best ride ever. Many many thanks to them. Benoit and... More

Had a great time riding through some of Kaikoura countryside on a 4wheeler. The scenery and ride was both breath-taking and serene and the guides and instructors were amazing. Exceeded all expectations and myself and classmates couldnt stop buzzing afterwards. Thanks alot guys.

This activity has got to be one of the best in Kaikoura. I didn't have any prior experience on the quads and so we went through some basics. Alistair was really helpful and patient with me. The trail ride is about 20kms and we covered all sorts of terrain. The half way point is an amazing view of the coastline... More

This was the highlight of a family trip in 2008 - so on return to New Zealand it was on the top of my to do list! Having ridden a quad bike for the first time, the tuition prior to leaving was on point. The views are absolutely phenomenal - you won't see anything like it along the coast. The... More

Just the most brilliant of adventures. Neither I nor my wife had done anthing like this before - never even ridden a moorbike. After driving round the yard, it was decided that my wife would be safer an enjoy it more riding with the leade in the 4WDJust a brilliant trip, great views, do not miss this adventure.

We made a last minute decision to book with these guys, it turned out to be the best time! Great bikes, great trails and great value. The ride was much longer (time and distance) than I expected. Would highly recommend. Thanks so much for a great time.

I had an amazing time with these guys back in February 2010 with my family from the UK. It was a highlight of my 30th birthday and I've raved about it ever since. I got married in February and had close friends and family over from the UK again. We returned to Glenstrae Farm for a second time and enjoyed... More

So underrated!!! i mean quad biking is fun no doubt about it but it is the location and warm welcome and breathtaking scenery that make this such a great day out. Alistar's dry sense of humour and local knowledge are great companions to have on the tour- also you never feel rushed-its a proper kiwi experience. The track winds it... More

I did this adventure ride today with my son. Everything about the trip was first rate. The ride is off-road all the time across farm land and through creeks, with stops every now and again to admire the stunning scenery and wildlife. It was the best value activity I've had whilst in NZ by far. Highly recommended.
