“Would like more rainforest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was a fun experience, but not as great as I had expected. Holly was lots of fun and very welcoming and the equipment was great. Good wet weather gear, coat, trousers, gum boots, socks and gloves and the bikes were great and very easy to handle. Our tour spent a lot of time on the riverbed which was nice, but is not all that beautiful and becomes a bit of all the same after a while. We really enjoyed the time in the rainforest and would have liked that to be longer. It is probably a much more fun experience if you are more into bikes and petrol fumes and the such than we are.

“Best activity in Franz Josef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is so much fun! You go around on the bikes for a couple of hours over all different terrain and scenery! It is hard to wipe the smile off your face!

The guides are really friendly. We had never been on them before but felt so comfortable and had a blast flying through the mud!

Would recommend this to anyone going to Franz Josef!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Had a awesome time... was the only one on the tour. They didn't cancel on me which was great... went around to all the sits to see, learnt about the glacier. Was a great thing to do before I did the glacier tour that afternoon. My guide was super friendly!
