      Take your gf and let her drive!
      This was so fun that we had to go back again the next day. Went with my gf during a trip, and we both are pretty novice. Some quad bike experience3 during out childhood was our only background. But these guys will take care of you and help you have fun at your level. On our second day they thought my gf was being hilariously excited. We also drove safely and capably on the first day. So when we went back, they took us on a way more challenging tour. You should really book a tour, this was the highlight of our New Zealand vacation. BTW my gf wants to buy a side-by-side now

      Thank you Sam
      Sam accepted our last minute booking and we are glad he did. Had so much fun and felt more like a hang out then a guided tour. Sam was very friendly and made the trip much more enjoyable, especially considering we had never been on quads before. Would definitely recommend everyone to experience.

      Best Off Roading Experience
      We chose to do the Challenger self guided buggy tour. We booked a Buggy each, and this proved to be the best decision all round. It allowed us to individually experience the entire trail that our guide Josh took us on, rather than share the drive. This hands down is amazing, and 100% recommend if you like to have fun while driving with a challenge. Josh is an experienced guide an operator, and was easy to listen to and to trust. He takes you through a comprehensive training drive to ascertain your ability. The Wolverine Buggies are fantastic to drive, and easy to put your trust in & super comfortable even when bouncing over rocks and sliding around corners. Must do in Queenstown. Thanks Josh and Off Road Expeditions.

      This experience was the best!! Thrill seekers will love every minute of this 2 hour adventure. It was the perfect amount of mud and adrenaline. My husband was like a little kid!! Scott our guide was amazing! He had as much fun as we did chewing up the dirt as we flew around the tracks. All the protective gear is supplied to keep you as clean as possible. Totally recommend this when in Queenstown.

    What a wicked experience. We highly recommend putting this on your bucket adventure list when coming to Queenstown. It well exceeded our expectations. Whatever the weather you will come out beaming. It was awesome. We cannot speak more highly of Scott our guide. He was a fantastic guide and made us fell safe and able to push ourselves. Couldn't stop smiling for hours. Another highlight was Scotts knowledge of all of the history surrounding Queenstown and took the time to guide us though this whilst we took in the spectacular views. Again a MUST DO. Thanks Scott for a great afternoon.

    Great experience, thrills, chills and no spills. Safe fun for the whole family with that adrenaline element.

    Awesome bunch of guys, no discrimination.

    Out of all the experiences we had on our holiday I would rate the buggy tour as the best value for money and entertainment.

    This is a great experience. The buggies are amazing and you really get a good opportunity to explore the tracks and stunning views of the region from high up. Connor did a great job ensuring everyone’s safety and giving good advice about the upcoming challenges. Not to be missed by petrol heads or adrenaline junkies

    One of the best experiences in Queenstown by far! Epic views and challenging course, this is not just a simply drive along (although I'm sure it can be if asked for). We had so much fun, especially in the rain! Scott and Denis were awesome guides and we will definitely be back. A++++++++ (all gear is provided even if you're wearing white shoes and your best clothes)!

    I cannot recommend this experience enough! If you can only do one single thing in Queenstown, make sure it is this!

    We were able to push ourselves out of our comfort zones, while feeling safe and learnt along the way. We felt well looked after by Brady and the team. We loved hiving this experience in the rain and felt like the mud really added to the fun - an awesome activity to do when the weather doesn't suit skiing/hiking.
