My husband signed us up for this excursion for our honeymoon. I was excited for the adventure but very nervous to ride an ATV for the first time with so many other people. I was happy to know you can ride as a passenger in a 4 person buggy if you want to but I really wanted orchids an ATV. The guides are very friendly and clearly love their jobs. (I don't see how they couldn't love their jobs.).
When you get up to the loading area they have a small (challenging) test course for everyone to try. The instructions cards were overwhelming but they go over EVERYTHING for you in a live demonstration which makes it much easier then the info card makes it seem.
The test track is difficult it's short so you can't go very fast but you will need to turn and stop and they can gauge your comfort level from the short track. You get two chances though so take comfort in that!
This is an AMAZING tour of the Waipo Valley. We read a couple of reviews that mentioned short riding time. We did not feel that way. We guess we rode on the ATVs for at least an hour. You get great snacks and a swim break in the kings bath (freshwater pond with a waterfall!) Make sure you wear a swimsuit under your clothes and have a towel in your backpack and we recommend Reefs or similar shoes for the trip.
The views were magnificent and the guides will take pictures for you which is very helpful!
While you don't go more than 20mph on the trip you will get very dirty. Every single thing you take on the ATV including yourself will be covered in dirt. They give you a cap for under your helmet and a bandana to cover your mouth and nose. Make sure you wear sunglasses or bring goggles. They do have goggles you can ask for but you will absolutely need eye coverage.
Absolutely loved this tour and really had a great chance to love my first time riding an ATV. My husband has a lot of experience with ATVs and he enjoyed the tour as well!
