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....

My husband and 17-year-old son did the two-hour driving experience with Corey and had a blast. We were looking for an attraction to lure a teenager away from his video games long enough to spend a weekend in VT with his family, and this was definitely it. As much fun as he had driving backwards up a hill on their... More

My boyfriend loved this gift...David our instructor took us all over the course in a brand new full size 2014 Rover...my bf learned how to use all the fancy buttons and drive the 80 acre course for over an hour...very cool experience and at the end you both receive a certificate of completion so that was cool!!

After being in Dorset, VT for the summer we accidentally came across the Land Rover Driving School at The Equinox. We signed up for a one hour session with the instructor David Nunn. The whole experience was fun and informative and left us thinking about buying a Range Rover which we had never considered. Our instructor was professional and friendly,... More

They don't seem to advertise this option a lot, but for $25 a person, they will drive you on an adventure ride off road in a land rover. My husband and 10 year old loved it.

Liked the instructor and what we learned. However, we booked a Range Rover Sport and had to settle on an LR4. This took away from the learning experience and did not do much for them selling us a new car.

Land Rovers are the off-reading equivalent to a BMW. Beautifully over-engineered to take whatever you can throw at it. The Land Rover Experience in Manchester offers a full day introduction (along with other options) to just how capable these vehicles are. The full day option includes a morning session on the equivalent of an SUV obstacle course to teach you... More

I gave a one-hour experience to my husband as a birthday present. I have to say it was an excellent choice. Our instructor was Cortland. He was very knowledgeable and thorough about the off-roading capabilities of the vehicle as well as the terrain we were about to encounter. He was also witty and had a great sense of humor which...
