Even if you think you can drive a quad bike, after four hours on this tour you'll know what it's really like. We had some riders with more than ten years of operating a quad bike, and some who had never been on one before. Both groups (and those in between) had a blast. The place is spectacular and you...

Had the best day out quad biking with me (59), my brother (58), his wife (52), and my two sons (25&23). Nigel met us at the gate, 10 min drive up gravel road. Kitted us out in helmet, waterproof coat and leggings, gloves, gumboots (wellies). Then down to the quad bikes. Full, clear instructions on safety and the workings of... More

Done during cruise stop in Wellington. Picked up and drop off at landing by Nigel [owner/operator]. Great guy! Taken to his property in the hills by minibus, great instructions and safety training with opportunity to opt out if not suitable. Bikes require a bit physical fitness. About 35 kms ride through the hills with steep inclines, through rivers and mud... More

Had a few extra days while in Wellington to fill and found Wellington Adventures on TripAdvisor. One email and I was booked for a 1/2 day quad tour. I was picked up (along with a small group from a cruise ship) in Wellington about 9AM for the 40+ minute drive around the bay and up into the hills. Nigel pointed... More

We had the half day tour booked for our last day of our 2 weeks in New Zealand and it was meant to be the highlight of our holiday. We were collected at our hotel by Nigel and another family of 5 which I'm presuming mum & dad along with their 3 young girls. We had about 45 minutes drive... More

Took this tour (Dec 2015) from the Cruise Ship as we wanted to do something physical and not just the basic bus run around town (Recommend you book early as it fills up fast due to limited availability) - We were fortunate to have a perfect fine day with moderate temperatures. We were picked up (group of 12 - mixed... More

We were on a cruise to New Zealand, and this was our onshore activities. It was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. The quad biking was fun and the scenery was spectacular. Our guides - Nigel and Tim - were very friendly and patient with us as first time quad bike riders. From a tentative start,... More

Pick up from the information centre and drop off at your hotel, this attraction was the highlight of my visit to Wellington. The views are breathtaking, and was simply one of the best experiences of my life. Seeing wild seals, travelling through a river that connects to the ocean. Stopping for a quick snack and being able to take in... More

Quad biking through the mountains of New Zealand was amazing. The views were stunning and driving through a wide range of scenery in the open air was like nothing I've experienced before. The tour begins at our awesome guide's (Nigel Thomas) home at the peak of a hill overlooking the city, countryside, strait/water... basically everything. It's amazing that such a... More
