This was the best off-road experience I have ever had. Meet with Dave the driving instructor at the scheduled time. We got started with Dave going over a few things while we drove to the course. Once we got there he went over a few things about the vehicle and drove for about 15 minutes. Handed the wheel to me... More

David and Cortland made the driving experience utterly fantastic--it was the best part of our trip! It was more fun and entertaining than I would've expected...my husband has lots of experience off roading so I thought this would be mostly for him, but I drove for most of the time and absolutely loved it! David and Cortland made everything easy... More

Had a great experience with David, felt really comfortable to take control and do it myself. Felt like boss at driving and knew what I was doing thanks to David's excellent instruction.

It isn't too often that one can have a great time learning something new. That was exactly the case with our experience at the Land-Rover Experience Driving School. Our guide, Chris, was a complete expert at both driving and providing an excellent learning experience for us, new owners of a Range Rover. We couldn't believe what we learned and enjoyed... More

Offering various excursions from 1 hour to full day, this is a great experience just minutes from Manchester Village. Literally, a mile away from the Village, tucked into the woods across the valley. Amazing 5+ mile course. State of the art Land Rovers, all the bells and whistles. David runs a great business and Jack, our driver, was a good... More

I just returned from a long weekend in Vermont. On Sunday morning, I participated in a two-hour new owner's training ride (I took possession of a 2016 LR4 in November 2015) at The Land Rover Experience School (LRES) at the Equinox Hotel. My driving instructor was David Nunn, a fine fellow and an excellent teacher. This was my third overall... More

My friend and I split the full-day trip, and we had such a great time that he felt confident enough to take his own vehicle on the public trails, after completing the Land Rover Experience obstacles. We started with Chad in the morning, learning about the VERY capable full-size Range Rover, and the various technologies available when driving it off-road.... More

When I heard about this Land Rover program, I knew I had to get it for my husband! We did the all day program. In the a.m. Chad took us around their private course in a brand new $120k Range Rover where we got to learn the basics and see what this incredible vehicle is capable of! Chad was a... More

My wife and I just got done off-roading with Dave, our guide. He was awesome, patient, and a great teacher. We would highly suggest this to anyone spending time in Manchester. A MUST DO!
