“Quads were awesome fun!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

As part of our Annual conference a group of us went on a 2 hour quad bike ride with this company - quite simply 2 hours of the best fun you will ever have! Stunning scenery and exhilarating ride on the quad bike, it can't be beat!!

“4 x's The Fun!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I recently spent the weekend away in Hanmer Springs - always a favourite getaway of mine! My partner and I decided that it was time to experience something different this time and decided to go Quad Biking with Thrillseekers. It was an absolute blast! I have never been on a Quad Bike before and found the guides really helpful with running through how to use the bike. It was easy to pick up and and a heap of fun too! My partner has had quite a bit of Quad Biking experience and he really enjoyed it too so it seems that it suits people from entry through to experienced people.

The guides were great, the scenery stunning and well worth the $$$ as it was a good couple of hours. Would definitely recommend it for anyone!!!

“Jet boating fun”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Good trip in the jet boat. Not worth the full price of $114 but as we got half price on book me it wasnt bad value for the 35 minute trip. Doesnt have the same intensity as the Queenstown jet boating but is pleasant enough.

“Ensure you bring a change of clothes!! Brilliant!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We decided to have a crack at quad bike riding. It was absolutely fantastic and we could not recommend it and the company more!! A massive high five for our guide Dee who ensured we all had a great time, a laugh and lots of mud!! A great day out with the most stunning back drop!

“Loads of fun”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

Went jet boating with these guys. They made sure kids were well catered for and safe. Hamilton spins were great. Lots of history about the area passed on to us during the trip. Well worth the money!
