Just finished the Land Rover experience with Daniel, I have to say I was beyond impressed. Daniel was extremely well prepared and knowledgeable. We did things I didn't know were possible. He even let my blind son drive the vehicle and I was more nervous than both Daniel and him. If you get a chance it is definitely worth it!

I've owned several SUVs over the years, but leased a Rover last year and received a certificate for two hours of 1 on 1 instruction to this driving school. I'm just sorry I waited so long to use it. We spent two hours driving over rocks, ruts, roots and up/down steep inclines in fully understanding what the Rover is capable... More

Our instructor Dan was excellent! We were in Vermont for the weekend and were looking for something different to do. Dan took his time and really knew his stuff. The course was well taken care of and he knew every turn and obstacle. We are definitely considering a Land Rover for our next car. Overall amazing!

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...
