tried quad biking for the first time, Kel was super friendly and clear with instructions, made sure we were comfortable with the route at all times and was going at a comfortable pace for both of us. We had a lot of fun on the quads going up and down the mountain. Kel was great!

Wish I could give this a better rating than excellent!! We had an amazing time quad biking IN THE SNOW! We booked our trip late May when tourist numbers were low so the two of us had a private tour. When we visited the leaves had turned the beautiful colours of Autumn and the first snow had appeared on the mountains making for amazing photos. We appreciated our guide offering to take our photos along the way too. The customer service of our guide was outstanding and the right amount of professional casual, our safety was put first right from the beginning and throughout and our riding experience and comfort was checked multiple times before heading into higher ground. A lovely surprise was how well educated our guide was on the history of the area, flora and fauna (some really interesting facts about the plant life). The quad bikes are well maintained, super flash with the addition of heated handle bars (luxury) and has a storage box on the front for additional jackets etc. Additionally, our helmets were sanitised again before being given to us which we really appreciated.

The trip is laid out really well, start off through farm land and a gradual climb into the mountains, heading across the top of the ridge before heading down again through the beautiful landscape and across streams with a super surprise finish at the end! Our guide also encouraged us to check out the local Distillery at the neighbouring property and on to Wanaka where we had a delicious meal by the lake front. Thank you for recommending this to us!

We will be back again for sure.

My partner and I were lucky enough to receive a private tour on the quads with Kelly. She was a fantastic guide - providing a great amount of knowledge of the local area, as we stopped at a number of spots along the tour. This was by far the highlight of our trip and we would recommend to anyone looking for a great mix of adrenaline and sight seeing. Thanks Kelly for our awesome experience. We will be sure to come back on our next visit to Queenstown.

Had a great tour with Kelly and the team. The afternoon was wonderful and not only enjoyable but Kelly was really engaging and knowledgeable about the mountain and many things associated with the local area as we climbed up the mountain for some great views and pictures. Would definitely recommend the excursion and thank you for the warm hospitality, will be back later in the year.

We had a great time adventuring in the mountains on the quad bikes - the views were amazing and ride was a good mix of flat rounds, bushes, water area, which made it super fun and exciting! Best of all was the instructor who made sure everyone was safe and well aware of where we were and where we were heading. She had so much enthusiasm on the introduction of the area and made it super fun! Would definitely come again and recommend for anyone - couples, friends groups, families!

The tour covered some great farm tracks, got plenty of height and gave great views of the area. Kelly was an awesome guide, very informative and gave clear instructions for a safe traverse over the moderately challenging terrain

I would highly recommend the quad bike experience. We had a 2 hour fun filled adventure driving to the peak of the mountain which was 1000 meters high. The views were breathtaking, the commentary was very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
