This is our second time doing this experience, and loved it just as much this time, as the first time. We just missed the rain, and still managed to see most of the great views. So fun driving the EV buggy. Will definitely do it again, when we have another friend come down to stay. Andy was so helpful, advising us to come out early, so we did miss the rain.

Really fantastic experience. 4x4 is fun to drive & easy enough for anyone to pick up. It's great to be able to go at your own pace and stop whenever you want to get a photo or skim stones! The scenery is really amazing, and this is an awesome way to see parts of NZ you wouldn't otherwise access (-getting the chance to see the filming location for Isengard from Lord of the Rings was pretty cool too!). Andy was fantastic, and really knowledgeable about the area - Thanks for an awesome day. Fully reccomend this experience to everyone.

Hello Shoshana and E. Great to hear back from you, I remember your visit well, it was awesome to welcome you both here, and great to have time to chat with you after the tour. Really appreciate you making the effort to visit and give the 4WD a spin. I don't get a lot of locals/Southerners here I suppose most assume they've 'seen it all', so just goes to show there is always something new on your doorstep to explore and surprise. Very best wishes. Andy.

Thank you Andy for an amazing afternoon exploring the area in your fun 4x4. Is the perfect way to explore the Dart river and the amazing scenery of Glenorchy. We had a blast driving through the river bed while being able to stay quiet enough to hear all the birds living in the area. Highly recommended!!!

Amazing experience and, wow, the location! Absolutely one of our highlights during our recent trip to the South Island - less than 1 hour out of Queenstown. Brilliant way to experience natures wonder, have fun in an eco friendly 4WD with some awesome tech. We were lucky that we had the river, birds, rabbits and mountains all to ourselves, but this is only because sadly visitors are low due to Covid. Andy is a genuinely kind and passionate bloke running this unforgetful experience. Super easy booking and kept us informed every step of the way from booking to weather updates leading up to and on the day. Well recommend this as a fun adventure. We are a fam of three with a 5.5 year who had a blast! Thanks for the hospitality, Andy. Looking for to returning one day to zip along side the snow capped mountains. Hero

Wow, Hero, thank you so much! Such kind words, I'm flattered, people will be thinking I paid for this review!! Excellent to meet you and your lovely family. And cheers for the epic photo, that's a classic. I look forward to welcoming you again when the peaks are snow covered. Winter is often the calmest and sunniest time of year. Until then, best wishes and thanks again for your visit, it was much appreciated. Andy.

We had a wonderful family day out at Delta Discovery! We had three vehicles for six adults and two children. The children loved it just as much as the adults. We took some food and drinks with us for a picnic at the halfway point. This is a stunning way to check out the beauty that NZ has on offer. Soak in the scenery, skim some stones, get some epic photos, have a picnic and a blat on the buggie - what more could you ask for!!
