“Super Fun - Thrilling - Would Do it Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

We went to Snowshoe to escape the heat of DC. A couple of friends went mountain biking down the fire roads but that wasn't our thing. We went to the activities office and the tour guide reinforced our choice of the Green Zebra tours - she everyone comes back from it raving about it. She was right.

It's not cheap. Roughly $100 a person but much cheaper if you just ride in the guides car. We went two to a car and it was a little over $100 a person (plus we tipped our guide at the end).

Don't wear white. Wear open-toed shoes. And wear something that you're okay if you get a speck or 12 of dirt on it. And, you can bring your stuff (like small purse, camera, phone, stuff) but you're strapped in pretty tight and it would be better to put your stuff in a small plastic bag of some sort to put in the center console.

Anyway, they give you a short lesson and you strap yourself in (they check closely to make sure you're really locked in after every stop) and off you go in your green zebra - some like a small military like transport vehicle with open side likes a jeep. It was actually quite comfortable and we were surprised that the shocks we pretty good. Not a lot of jerkiness and quite a smooth ride considering you're going up and down and over rocks and ruts, and ditches and up the mountain and down the mountain. We stopped at a fire tower and climbed up. It's old school so if you don't like tight spaces, heights and structures that don't have all the amenities watch everyone else from the safety of the ground.

This was about two hours, lots of climbing up and an but we felt pretty stable and then some straight aways where we actually got some speed. Once we adjusted to trusting the machine it was awesome. We had considered taking multiple vehicles so everyone could drive but not needed. We had more fun being able to talk in the vehicle and they let you switch drivers about half way through. This was truly an awesomely fun experience!

“Intense off road experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

This is a great adventure for the whole family. Intense at times in terms of the bumping around on rough rocky terrain, but our kids (9 and 6) loved it! I highly recommend this - it's worth the price. Andy and Carol will make sure you stay safe and have a very memorable adventure!
