We did this tour while in Vermont and I'm so glad we did. Our guide Phil was great, very down to earth and easy going. The views of the area were amazing! We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it as well.

“Worth every penny”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This was an outstanding experience and was one of the highlights of our Vermont trip.

We signed up for the private family tour, 4 adults from 29 to late 60's and a 7 and 9 year old. Phil was fantastic, he put us all at ease immediately and gave us 2 wonderful hours. I suggest getting there a few minutes early to get the paper work out of the way, that way you can jump right in.

After signing the forms, Phil gives a training session. You get your helmet fitted and he then explains the controls for the ATV. Its very simple to control and after going over a few things you hop on and make a few loops around the parking area to get your feet wet.. Phil gives some great suggestions, so listen carefully and ask questions.

We then took off single file and saw a lot of the amazing scenery the NEK is famous for. One highlight was the memorial orchard (http://memorialorchard.com/lodge.html) and the lodge they are building, everything there supports ALS research. Absolutely beautiful place. There were some more tremendous views and a nice jaunt down a forest ATV road (quite exciting!). All of us enjoyed every moment. Phil is a great guide and we felt safe the whole time.

When we return to Vermont we will be sure to stop here again. Make sure you do too!

“Great Fun”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I took my husband and 11 year old son on the 4 hour ATV tour. We had a great time! Not only was riding fun but we wanted to see the VT scenery. We're staying at the Stowe Mountain Lodge and the drive over was not a big deal at all. We will definitely be back next year!

“Fun Adventure”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a two hour ATV guided tour from Phil this past weekend. We had a fantastic time and highly recommend NEK Adventures to others. I had never been on an ATV before, and Phil was extremely patient both when he showed me how to operate my ATV and while I initially puttered along at super slow speeds until I became comfortable. The tour itself was great, and we particularly enjoyed getting to tour a log cabin that was under construction and admiring the area's "million dollar view." It's definitely a fun way to get outside and experience Vermont's beauty. We can't wait to come back and try both the four hour ATV tour and snowmobiling in the winter!

“The BEST ATV Experience in Vermont!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A most unforgettable and memorable experience through picturesque St Johnsbury on a cool summer’s day! Phil was a most excellent guide. He was patient in explaining the terrain, telling us about the various historical landmarks in the country and thoroughly knowledgeable of the land. We loved the quaint places the trek took us. The trip to the Pie Shack and the soon-to-be-finished loghouse / B & B were absolute treats. We will certainly recommend Phil to all our friends headed that way and who want a guaranteed fun-filled adventure. Definitely can’t wait to be back in the winter and go snowmobiling with Phil! Thank you very much for the great holiday, Phil!

Even our 7 year-old daughter had this to say, "Phil was a great tour guide. Giving us a lot of information was very nice of him. He was patient when we asked questions and always had a smile on his face. We loved the wonderful places that Phil took us to. We loved going to the log house and the pie shack."
