We loved our first Quad Bike experience. Granville was a great instructor and guide. The route he took us around was challenging but achievable and provided beautiful scenery. We would highly recommend this activity for anyone visiting this area. Just 55mins from Christchurch or on the route to Arthur's Pass.

We went quad biking on Sunday and loved every single minute. We had a nice small group (four of us) and received plenty of instructions, and had a mini test-run before we set off on the main adventure. Our guide was Grenville and he was really knowledgeable and passionate about his job. On our trip we crossed all sorts of... More

An absolute must for anyone with an interest in bikes. This was my first time riding off-road, and Grenville ensured that I was challenged just the right amount, and my riding progressed massively throughout the day. The scenery was incredible, and Grenville's exceptional knowledge of the huge area of land on which we could ride meant that the terrain was... More

The Suzuki DRZ 400 was the perfect bike for you with the smooth power delivery. The KTM's are an enduro race bike so have very responsive engines and a tall seat height which makes it harder for beginner riders. So glad you had a memorable and fun experience that makes your New Zrealand holiday special for you. More

This was my third outing with Adventure Tours and each time the experience has been excellent. Grenville is an expert rider and tour guide with access to unique trails on private property. It was a riding experience unlike anything available to me in California, the trails in NZ are hardly used and more lush. The scenery is spectacular throughout the... More

We are always developing new trails at our Springfield riding venue and last year we completed a extreme enduro trail. Knowing Stephen was an experienced rider this was perfect to challenge his riding skills. These trails follow deer tracks through the forest or cattle tracks around the tussock hill country which is totally different from a groomed mx track. Always... More

We did the 2 hour tour which was fun- the views were fab and the guides were lovely. I do think the guides need to be mindful that the group aren't as experienced as them at driving the quads but other then that would highly recommend for anyone looking for something exciting as everyone in the group had a great...

We took on the KTM 350's. These bikes were superb! - A total test of mind and body. You get so busy just concentrating on the sheer speed and performance you almost forget to look at the beauty of the Canterbury outback. I highly recommend this tour for adventure seekers.

Great experience! Never been on quads before this however have done dirt biking. This did not disappoint at all. The scenery was fantastic, the track was challenging and great fun! You do the scenic part up the hills first and then 2nd half is smashing it through mud, rocky paths and rivers! I would do this again and again!
