Our family spent the morning with Merv. He was great at instructing those of us who were beginners and we were able to have a fun, pretty and interesting ride through the woods and paths near Rotorura. Great trip, thanks Merv!

Had a great 1/2 day tour. We were picked up at out motel and taken to a dirt track. Reasonably quiet so we're able to get our bearings. I was a novice and Merv to great care in insuring that I was fully up to speed before tackling the tracks. I did have a few falls but this wasn't an issue as by the end I felt pretty comfortable on the bike. Merv was very personable and had over 30 years experience so you felt very comfortable with hi,. Thanks for a great days adventure. I would definitely recommend for people with a sense of adventure.

Had a great ride with Merv (Owner) who not only hooked me up with the perfect size bike for my riding level and size (his one of a few Honda CRF 230's, perfect for my 178cm height 77kg weight as I am a novice rider), I also got a spectacular ride deep into the hills of Rotorua. Hit a few fresh cow pies but that was nothing compared to the perfect post-rain conditions with just enough moisture to keep the dust down and the mud to a minimum. Merv was careful to stay at my pace but also pushing me just enough to better my riding technique. He was very attentive to me and gave me some great riding tips for when I get back to California. He is very easy going but with his 30 years of riding experience I knew I would be ok and learning from the best. If you are a seasoned rider on vaca with an itch to twist some grips or a newby week end warrior like me you've got to hit up Pure Dirt Tours NZ! Thanks again Merv!

This was my first time on a bike and Merv was the best teacher - extremely patient and after a few tumbles had me riding with confidence. I was lucky enough to pick a really beautiful morning to do this and was treated to the best views over Rotorua and even to Mt Tarawera! I highly recommend this activity, it's so much fun and suitable for almost anyone. I went skydiving a couple of weeks ago and speeding through the paddocks with those beautiful views was right up there with that! Thanks again Merv :)

My 14 year old son and I took a 2 hour ride with Merv during our vacation. All I can say is that it was fantastic. My son hasn’t ridden before and Merv took great care to show him how to ride and navigate the trails. He was very patient!! Couldn’t recommend this enough for families willing to try something different.
