CUSTOMERS REVIEWS

“Awesome quad biking!”

Owners provide a fabulous adventure with top class service. Felt at ease once I was shown how to ride. They take photos as you go so no need for you to take your camera which is great. Will definitely return!

“Do not miss! ”

Do not miss this unforgettable experience, the most incredible views and so much fun. Karl and Maria are such lovely people, could not have made us more welcome. One of the best things I've ever done. Thanks again!

“Unique to the brim!”

With the Alpine Crossing cancelled, we still wanted to do something adventurous. Skeptical about this place being a generic and dull business, we soon realised it was the most unique, fun-filled experience offered by two of the most genuine people we've met. Both Karl and Maria were exceptional hosts/guides - the quad biking route was terrific (the real deal!) and they even sat down for a nice cuppa + banter with us afterwards. Highly recommended for all ages, would definitely come back.

  • Very fun ride on the Ruapehu hills, Carl, our guide was very nice and friendly and took the time to do a full quad lesson for the beginer riders! It was also nice to have all the free pictures taken by Carl! The ride was great with some tricky parts that made it really fun for both beginer and expert riders. A must do in Tongariro! 5

  • Very friendly people. They are teaching u how to use the quad. Than u do some test rounds. If u can ur quad very well, the tour is different and u will have more challenging tracks. Then it is no instant tourist tour. We had a lot of action! It was awesome. :) 5

  • Best quad experience we have ever done. We had 3 in our group who have quad biked in 3 locations in New Zealand and once in Cairns and this rates easily the best most technical fun ride we have done. One in our group was also a first timer but with great advice and guidance he did everything the rest of us did and we all left with big smiles and promises to be back. Top rated gear and wonderful, friendly hosts. The location was also a total winner with varied tracks and great challenges. Not to be missed. 5
