It was a damp, but warm morning, which helped keep the dust down as we drove up through farmland and NZ native bush.

We were 2 couples, plus a single and 2 guides.

The couples each had a buggy, the single their own too, with plenty of opportunities to swap drives for the couples. The guides drives their own buggies at front & rear.

First there was a short familiarization drive around a track for each potential driver to learn the buggy. They are simple to drive if you can drive an automatic car. Then off up the track.

We stopped at points of interest for commentary and photos on a drive that felt safe while providing a suitably off road experience.

Some of the buggies were 4 seaters so that children could ride with parents (so long as they meet the minimum size /age requirement)

Fun ride through area around close to Rotorua. We went through areas with cattle and into the forest. Also stopped at various points to look at the views including a great view of Lake Rotorua. Esther our guide was very friendly and informative. It was a highlight of our tour talking to her.

What a great day! We are a family of 5 (kids aged 8, 11 and 13) so couldn’t do the self drive, but this was even better. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and extremely patient with the continuous questioning of our 8 year old. The weather was overcast and drizzly, which was perfect for this trip. The track was nice and muddy with lots of dips, puddles, mud, slipping, and sliding. It was tons of fun for the adults and kids. One of our sons rated it 11/10, and another one wanted to go again. Awesome!

We did the 4x4 tour with Maud. It was fun and the track kept it exciting all the way around. My 7 year old rode up front with Maud and talked her ear off the whole way around because he was having such a great time.

I did this yesterday with my 5 year old. It was absolutely amazing. Zac our driver was so lovely and kind with my very active and excited little girl. He also explained the history of the area and tracks. It was simply amazing. Thank you guys so much. We also did the pony ride and that was equally amazing, everything was explained to my daughter to make her feel at ease and confident on the horse.

Not quite what I expected, but fun nonetheless, bouncing around the dusty tracks. Magnificent view of Lake Rotorua from the hill. The native forest was beautiful. Good information from our driver, Esther.

we booked the 4WD buggy adventure on the 14th June 2019, we are group of 14 people . the leader guide was Ihaia , the other guides were Hone and Tony. It was super fun and enjoyable , Ihaia as the leader guide was very knowledgeable. He told us a lot of story about Rotorua and Maori people culture and tradition. The guides were also very professional to drive the Buggy.

Ihaia was an amazing guide, explaining the local culture and history. His fun, lighthearted and joyful manner put us at ease and engaged.

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to understand a bit more about the cultural significance of the area.
