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.

I would love to recommend Glenstrae Farm 4 Wheel Adventures to everyone. From the first contact to the day of the trip Alistair was very helpful. Our Companies social club came up from Christchurch for the afternoon ride on ANZAC Day 2015. After contacting Alistair on the morning of the trip and advising we had one person pull out and...

After a couple of phone calls, I managed to get a booking with Glenstrae Farm 4 Wheel Adventures. It was an absolutely fantastic experience and was totally worth the price and the time. I would suggest that it's the top attraction in Kaikoura as it gives you so many different views and experiences in 3 hours. The tour goes for... More

My boyfriend and I werebin kaikoura for two days this week, and having already done whale tours and dolphin swims in the past, we were looking for something different! The lady in the I-site centre recommended this tour and I'm so glad she did! It was absolutely fantastic! The scenery from the top of the mountains is stunning, and the... More

Can only echo others words. I arrived on my own (wife didn't fancy it) to fid so others had cancelled leaving only me. Undeterred, and still enthusiastic, Alastair took me out on my own to give me a one on one tour on his bikes. After a brief teach-in, we took to the trails and covered his farm over the... More

While the primary reason most people go to Kaikoura is to go whale watching, we loved this adventure the most. It's not your standard tourist trap. The tour is run by the owner, Alistair, and you get to ride around in 20km of the most scenic property around the coast. I won't repeat all the great things said in the... More

Alistair had a little a practice track set up for people to get the hang of the 4 wheelers before the guided 2 hour ride. The track itself is amazing! Beautiful scenery everywhere, cows, sheep, mud puddles! The best views you will ever see, period. The ride itself is so much fun, not too bumpy but not too tame. Alistair... More

I have to admit to being a bit nervous about doing this, and I did take a while to get the hang of it but Alastair was very safety conscious which gave me confidence, I did get the hang of it and was glad I didn't have to become Alastair's back seat driver! Great fun, great views, great guide.
