      The ride of a lifetime
      I went on a one on one dirt bike adventure with Diego. All I can say is it was one of the best dirt bike experiences ive ever had. I was worried taht it would be to basic and I am an experienced dirt biker with several decades of experienec and I was not let down. Diego is amazing on a bike and he taught me so much. Everyone with thsi company is there to make your experienec memorable and I cant say enough good stuff about this company.

      Too much fun!
      Spent a wonderful, fun afternoon with Scott Columb splashing thru rivers, exploring canyons and riding the buggies. The tour was fascinating, hearing about everything from the perspective of a native. Scott knew his stuff and had a GREAT sense of humor to put up with us! Absolutely a must do when in Queenstown.

      Get out there and do it.!
      After 10yrs since last riding this was the perfect way to get back into the seat. Riding with friends in our mid-50's, Scott was a thorough professional to ensure we were riding safely, while still allowing plenty of fun and challenges. We covered nearly 200km over 2 days of stunning country, broken up with needed refreshments breaks and loads of history about the area. Scott kindly organised a 90 minute quad ride for our wives to start day 2 which they thoroughly enjoyed! Expert or novice, theres a ride able to be designed for you.

      Did an all day adventure bike guided tour around Queenstown. Our guides were Scott and Dennis and they were fantastic. They found great tracks relevant to our abilities. They gave informative talks on the regions history. Highly recommend. A must do. Will do again.

      Fantastic ATV experience
      My college-age daughter and I had a fantastic first experience on ATVs with the Off Road Adventure tour. Our guide, Sam, was kind, fun and attentive to safety--he really spent a lot of time watching us, giving clear direction and helping us grow in confidence as the activity progressed. He enabled all skill levels in the group to have fun. Overall, an awesome experience with spectacular views of Queenstown. Thanks, Sam, for also providing the best dining and activity recommendations we got in New Zealand!

      Best FUN and most laughs EVER
      Best FUN and most laughs EVER We went on one of the buggy adventures with Scotty this morning and by far this was the best FUN and the most laughs I've had in ages! Of all the outdoor adventure activities we have done in NZ in the last few weeks this was by far the standout highlight! So much FUN, adventure, adrenaline and a real thrill to experience the incredible beauty of Queenstown this way and to hear about the history from a true local. A scenic tour like no other! I haven't laughed hysterically so much from pure joy, excitement, adrenaline and non stop FUN watching myself and my partner hold on for dear life on this crazy adventure ride together. My only regret is we leave today and we can't get up and do it all again tomorrow! I seriously recommend this as A MUST DO in Queenstown!

      We had a brilliant time on our AWD adventure - beautiful scenery, super fun adrenaline buzz driving the tracks, and a fantastic guide. Everyone we met at Off Road Adventures was super friendly and helpful. Absolutely recommend.

      Amazing buggy experience
      Amazing experience, we were lucky enough to be the only two in the morning session. We had a training session before we hit the tracks. The views were stunning and the experience is one to remember.

      Great day diet biking the Nevis valley
      Great dirt biking experience. Did a training session on day 1 with Diego who was really good. Was raining but it was still fun. Second day we rode over the Nevis valley from Kingston to Cromwell. As a newby some of it was quite hard but Matt was great at being there for the difficult bits but leaving us to enjoy the riding for the easier sections. Fabulous scenery. Great mix of easy riding with harder sections and river crossings. Was exhausted when I got back. Took my 18yr old son who also has a great day. Highly recommended.

      Absolute fantastic experience, especially after overnight rain making track slippery and water pools. Safety a priority with experienced guides. Matt was a wealth of knowledge re the area terrain and history. Special thanks to Matt & Lloyd. A great way to end our time in Queenstown NZ. A must do when visiting Queenstown.

      Our family of 8 adults went on the Ultimate Adventure afternoon with Matt & Sam. A brilliant and informative 4WD trip into Skippers Canyon followed by some fun in their buggies afterwards. Smiles on everyone’s faces and a great Adrenalin filled afternoon for everyone !

    I booked a quad ride with short notice, Brendan (the guide) was excellent, after a few circuits in the mud getting familiar with the quad we headed up the hills on a rough track (which made the ride even more fun) The quads were in excellent condition & had plenty of power. All gear was provided & we had a great time. An excellent operator

    Absolutely unreal! Brendon was amazing - he was very patient with the walk through as well and adjusted our speed and pace accordingly. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and given we both had off road experience (quad and bike) we were still challenged and thoroughly enjoyed the terrain. Great way to get off the beaten track of Queenstown and they offer transfers out to boot!

    What a fabulous half day we had with Scott! The first part of our journey was in the Toyota truck travelling along the canyon, along the 6th most dangerous road in the world! It was epic! From seeing the bridge that was once the highest bungee jump off to where gold was found and comes from, to the history of the area and marvel of human enterprise. We then came back for the guided quad tour, a very technical and exhilarating ride. Scott was a wealth of information and knowledge. It’s clear he loves the region and wants us to walk away with more insights and awareness of this beautiful area. If you do the quads wear clothes that can get dirty as you will probably get some mud on you- all part of the fun.

    Thank you for your amazing review! We're thrilled to hear that you had a fantastic half day with Scott and enjoyed the off the beaten track adventure. It sounds like you had a blast travelling along the canyon, seeing the historic bridge and the gold mining site, and riding the quad bikes.

We appreciate your kind words and your recommendation. We hope to see you again soon for another epic adventure.

    Worst experience for us in queenstown. We were not confident and both frightened of falling off and damaging the bikes. 3 times I told the instructor that I had had enough and he said you are doing fine. We were taken to a field and told to go around a track on our own while he went off to a harder track with the other 2 customers, surely you don't leave 2 inexperienced riders alone? When he returned I told him I was finished, he took us all into a paddock for a 10 minute break and then back to base where he told us we had had the 1 and half hours we paid for! Not much of an adventure for us although I'm sure some people will enjoy it.

    Matt and Brendan were awesome instructors! They really watched and helped each rider getting to know the quads. We were split up by skill, which I appreciated... lol. My husband got to go a little faster and on a harder course, while I enjoyed something more my speed. It was 100% worth it! At the end we all rode together and that was really fun. I would recommend this to couples, families, friends, and anyone really! It's such an exciting experience and they really cater to each skill level.

    Incredible experience. Matt was brilliant and spent time giving us guidance and tips on how not to kill ourselves! This guy knows what he’s doing. The bikes are excellent and the track we went on took us to top of a hill with full 360 views over Queenstown and Arthur’s Point (I think). Got absolutely filthy which is why we love doing these sorts of things. Couple of jumps along the way made for some serious muscle aches the next day haha. Loved every minute, can’t recommend enough! Thanks guys, we’ll be back!

    Our group of three had a tour to ourselves (covid has decimated tourist numbers).

    Our guide/instructor Matt met us at downtown office and ran thru the paperwork before a quick 5 min van drive to the Quad Bike base.

    We were kitted out in very unsexy gumboots, trousers, jacket, gloves and helmet before being introduced to our quad bikes.

    Having ridden motorbikes since my teens I didnt expect any problems. I was wrong.
    My daughter who had never ridden a bike took to her quad like a duck to water. Within minutes she was quite happy sloshing thru the mud on the practice circuit, my husband has ridden farm quads and had no problems.

    Maybe it's because I'm a motorbike rider, maybe it's because I was behind my daughter and I was scared she was going to get hurt or maybe - nah who I'm I kidding I was a scaredy cat. Took forever to get damn bike to go where I wanted. The practice area has this massive hill, I screamed but I made it down safely.

    After an hour of me ploughing thru the tussock grass making new trails Matt decided that I wasn't able to go up the mountain. He kindly got out a buggy and took us all up to the top. The ride up was such fun and the view breathtaking.

    Once down again Matt took my daughter and hubbie for a blat round, they came back muddy and grinning.

    Quads are fun but not for the faint hearted.
    The four wheel buggy was awesome.

    Would revisit these guys no question.

    Value for money. Safe. Highly skilled staff.

    Not your typical ATV tour where you slowly meander along tame trails. These were fun, RWD sport quads, and the terrain was varied with steep grades and banked turns. Matt was awesome in coaching you to feel comfortable in a short amount for time, and had some good jokes to go along with it. 5/5 - would ride again.

    We had an amazingly fun experience with Ryan our guide and his colleague Matt. I was traveling with my partner and 3 friends and they talked me into doing the quad bike tour. For someone who has never done this i was quite nervous but Matt and Ryan were so welcoming and eased my nerves. I felt really comfortable as Ryan stayed with me the whole time until we got confident to do other tracks. Ryan made sure we were safe but still having fun and we sure did! They also took some great action photos for us and the track itself is just a beautiful way to see Queenstown! absolutely loved it and would highly recommend that even the most beginner try this out! you won’t regret it :) Thanks again to Ryan and Matt we will do this again

    The staff members are friendly and knowledgeable. We spent our entire time on the test track, as my daughter felt uneasy riding very steep declines. Consequently, we were unable to explore the higher scenic routes, which I presume involve more challenging ascents and descents up the mountain's side to get to. So it was repetitive as we were going around the same areas for the whole time.

    This is in no way a criticism of the operators, who rightly prioritize safety.

    However, it's worth mentioning that families with inexperienced riders might have a more interesting experience opting for alternate quad bike operators that offer flatter, less challenging trails.
