I'm not one for anything remotely adventurous or where my two feet aren't firmly on the ground. Before I came to New Zealand if you had asked if I wanted to go on a Quad Bike, it would have been a firm no. I decided to take a chance and go out of my comfort zone to do this, all... More

Hi there, I am so glad that you plucked up courage to give it a try! Sounds like you had a really great time out there. It has been dry for a couple weeks now which would have made the track very dry, but at least you should have been able to see the glacier! Thank you for giving us... More

Was a great activity to fill the day. We had two people on one bike so took turns driving and both still had a blast!

Hi there, Thank you for this great review! Sharing the bike is fun, that way you get a turn at driving but also a turn sitting on the back and actually getting to look around at the beautiful scenery that surrounds Franz Josef. Kind regards, -The Quad Bike Team More

Loved every second of this! Went as a passenger with my partner at the front...highly recommend! The tour guides were super friendly and split the group so the more experienced could get into it...would do it again.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! By the sounds of it you liked us, however the one star review is a little bit confusing as this indicates that you found us 'terrible' We like splitting the groups so that the different competency levels can go together, this lets the more confident people do...

We really enjoyed our Quad Bike experience. Olivia did a great job of making sure we all understood how to operate the bike safely and provided fun and interesting commentary at various points along the way. The ride itself was a blast going through all different types of terrain from tropical forest to river beds to dirt road. We only... More

We got a great deal on bookme.co.nz, so this was a great value, and even without the deal I would highly recommend. We also ended up having a private tour as no one else signed up for our timeslot which we really enjoyed. The ATV's are new and very easy to use - the guide also spends plenty of time... More

GREAT experience! Our guides were wonderful! GORGEOUS scenery. The company is very safety conscious - you start with a quick lesson how to properly drive a quad bike and you get to practice. They also provide outerwear (pants and jacket) and boots for you to wear over your clothing to protect your clothes (and keep you warm!). They do have... More

First time on a quad bike and loved it. Quite challenging and a bit scary in parts but great fun. Excellent guide. Glad I plucked up the courage to do it.

So glad we chose to do this as it was one of the greatest experiences we had in NZ. We were going to share a bike but decided after the trial run that we would definitely like a bike each. Jamie was an excellent guide and we tore around the river bed through water and mud and rocks and also... More
