My wife and I visited Manchester, Vermont and decided that we would give the Land Rover experience a try. We own a Land Rover but wanted to try out the newest Range Rover. We were staying right up the street at the Equinox and walked down for our two hour lesson. We met Gene (our instructor) and he explained what... More

This was our reason to the Manchester, VT area... a birthday surprise driving experience for my spouse. Dave, the instructor was calm, articulate and friendly. Made you feel right at ease being the driver in a challenging off road course. As the passenger, felt like part of the experience--wicked cool fun. Learned about the vehicle and much more in the...

Amazing vehicles in a picturesque setting! The land rovers are the epitome of luxury and taking them to this course and what they let you do with them is very surprising. Over hill and dale until they get you to a pivot point on a steep hill and then the instructor gets out of the vehicle and tips you with... More

We took a brand new Range Rover sport for a ride in snowy VT mountains. Rental arrangements were easy and staff is very friendly. We did an hour practice in their driving range (which is very good) and then head out to cross one of the mountains via local trails. Our instructor Dave was very knowledgeable and gave great tips...

Had a blast at the Land Rover Experience in Manchester Vermont. Got to drive a brand new Range Rover Sport on the offroad course in deep snow. So wild. Our awesome instructor Dave taught us offroad driving techniques and how to take advantage of the many features of the Range Rover Sport. Highly recommended! Definitely planning to return in the...

I felt like I was about 15 years old again - what a blast. Courtland was a fantastic instructor and took us for 4 hours on several different winter/snow courses with crazy obstacles, deep snow and hills so steep I was convinced the nose would slam into the ground. It was incredible to see what these vehicles are capable of... More

We went as part of their annual owner's day so we used our own LR4 to go through their course with instructors advising at each obstacle. So much fun and what a unique opportunity to see what these vehicles can really do! The instructors were enthusiastic and so helpful, I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the area! We'll...

They have an off road course where you can put the latest model Land Rovers through their paces. The Land Rovers are incredibly capable off road vehicles and the technology is amazing, I was being told to drive over obstacles and up and down inclines that I would have thought were impassable.

Really loved the off-roading experience.... The lessons are great (and much appreciated)... You drive a Range Rover through a dream course, hills, logs, steep inclines and pretty big hills.... We did the one hour session and it was great. The vehicle handled better than expected... VERY impressed... It is WELL worth the visit and money....
