After a beautiful scenic drive of just under an hour from Christchurch we met with Grenville at the agreed meeting place and then after another short drive we arrived at the "base". The day would have been good anyway but I can't give Grenville enough credit as he really made the day great. There were at least 3 new riders... More

During the first week of January we did a 3 hour tour with 2 ATVs plus 2 motor bikes in the mountain area near Springfield. All arrangements were made directly with Grenville and he guided us on the tour as well. It was fabulous. Grenville was able to keep two 22 year old boys and us 2 oldsters engaged and... More

The boys in the family (All down from wellington & Auckland) had the biggest smiles on there faces after a great days riding with Grenville and his support team.

We booked a full day tour & as a first timer I was pretty nervous about the whole thing... Grenville was a great guide, gradually increasing the difficultly as confidence grew. Challenging & exciting treks. Amazing views. Definitely a highlight of my trip!

This was far and away the highlight of our tour of the South Island. With a fresh dump of snow overnight, we thought the ride would be cancelled. It was the opposite of that; riding through the snow was amazing. Some of our group had never ridden trail bikes before, Grenville was able to quickly get us moving and whizzing... More

We (two mid-20 males) did a full day dirt bike tour and had the best day of our 3-week trip to NZ. As we had great weather, this tour included everything we loved in NZ: Neverendlich beautful landscape, being on your own in a great nature and a full day of adrenaline. We never rided dirt bikes before but a... More

We did the Summit Quad Bike ride with Shean as our guide and had the most fantastic time. There were two others with in the group who hadn't ridden quads before but this wasn't a problem as Shean ensured that we as experienced riders got plenty of opportunities to get a great ride. His local knowledge of the area added... More

Absolutely awesome setup Grenville has. Highly recommended even for guys with experience. There are trials for all abilities. Our only regret is only doing a half day!

Rode with my son and Grenville for 3 hour tour and encountered great terrain and breathtaking vistas through the hills. Even got to ride through a little bit of snow and did many stream crossings. Grenville paced us just right starting slow and increasing the difficulty as we went along. Highly recommended.

A friend and I did this quad bike trip a week ago. It was absolutely great. The scenery was just beautiful, getting access to farm, wilderness and real wild country areas. The bikes were easy to ride - I'm a reasonably experienced biker and my friend was quite a nervous novice. Grenville showed him the ropes and was very encouraging.... More
