“Wild Horse Tour”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Chris was a great guide/driver. He explained the history of the wild horses and how they ended up in the area. He also explained other things like dune reconstruction, the ins and outs of beach driving, and that Harry the tow truck driver makes a living saving those who don't take Chris' advise on beach driving. Chris found us a number of individual horses, and a harem with one of the new colts in it. The 2 hours of driving around horse hunting was very enjoyable.

“AWESOME SAFARI TOUR”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

WOW, just got back from our tour of the north beach and wild horses. To start out, as we drove to the beach our guide, Chris, was telling us about the horses and their history. How the horses got here, why they are confined to the north beach etc. As we started our drive up the beach we saw three horses who were hanging out by the water. It was breath taking. We were given plenty of time to take many pictures. As we drove in and out of the different areas of the north beach the ride was fun. Chris was an excellent guide. We saw over 20 horses on our 2 hour trip. A woman who was on tour with us,whom we did not know asked several times to take pictures of certain houses or other landmarks which Chris did without question. As we got back in town he drove us through old Corolla and we got pictures of the lighthouse. I have been on other horse tours and while we did see horses nothing compared to the adventure we had today. Can't wait to do it again or maybe a kayak tour next time we are in the outer banks.

“Segway Tours”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We recently went on a 'historic Corolla' segway tour through this company and it was one of the highlights of our entire vacation. We primarily did it just to try out the segways, but our tour guide Chris was amazing and very informative making the history part of the tour very enjoyable. Would highly recommend checking it out when you are looking for something to do just outside of the beach!

“Great personalized tour”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

My girlfriend and I took the last tour of the day through Back Country Safari Tours to see the wild horses of Corolla. We were very impressed with our guide, Steven, who was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the horses and a great tour guide. He knew where to find the horses and we had plenty of opportunities for photos. Because it was the last tour of the day, we also had the whole truck to ourselves, which made it even better. For a unique experience in the Outer Banks, I highly recommend.

“Segway tours”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Had a brilliant time on the Segway tour of Corolla
We wanted to do the off road tour to see the Mustang horses but it had rained heavily so we couldn't do it.
So we took the tour of Corolla instead
It was really good and so much fun. Also we probably spent more actual time of the Segway which our teenage daughters loved
Chris was our guide and was perfect. Imformative and fun.
Would recommend this to anyone.
