Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the very first contact via email Adam was helpful and prompt with responses. The tour itself was just amazing, lots of terrific views, isolated 4WD rosds, sheep stations and mountains and rivers everywhere we looked. Adam is clearly passionate about the area and knows it well and gave us plenty of information as well as answering all our questions.
We stopped at great locations for morning and afternoon tea and lunch, all fabulous food provided by Jen who is a chef.
Everything we saw was interesting but of particuar interest was the power station and we gradually learnt about that during the day as we passed by rivers and lakes which are part of the scheme and finally ended up at the park beside the power station for our final stop of the day.
The tour is well planned and although it was a long day, the many stops for photos, information etc b roke up the day very well and we were sorry when it was time to head back to Christchurch

We are a group of farmers who were looking to do a 5 day 4 WD tour of the upper South Island in April. In our group was a coeliac who cannot have any gluten whatsoever. He is also a paraplegic so Jen and Adam had their work cut out!! They designed a 4 wheel drive tour which included seeing farms, meeting farmers, staying at great places and eating yummy food which also catered to our gluten free friend. Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea if required and dinners were included all delicious and home cooked.
Thanks so much Adam and Jen for your hard work and for taking care of us all so well. We had a great holiday and created many happy memories.

My son and I took the 2-day LOTR/High Country tour. It was a major highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Adam was a terrific host and guide and we got to see vistas that few visitors get to experience. The food and accommodations were top notch. Well worth the price and 100% recommended. The tour is best if you are willing and able to do a little hiking, but they will adapt to whatever you prefer.

Adam adapted the trip to suit us and the weather. He did a great job. Jen's lunch and baking were excellent.
They obviously are willing to make sure that their clients are well looked after and get the most possible out of the day.
We would recommend them to anyone who is looking for an interesting, informative day out in some wonderful Canterbury high country scenery.

Our day with Adam and 4x4 Adventures was one of the highlights of our trip. Adam had so much knowledge about the land and scenery that really made the tour fantastic. It was lovely to have Adam drive us around (his 4x4 was extremely comfortable, he made sure of it).

The views were 10 out of 10
The service received was 10 out of 10 and the home made baking and lunch was to die for.

This is something you don't want to miss on a trip to Christchurch.

It was trouble free, Adam picked us up right from our accommodation reception so we could leave our car at the hotel, he described where we were going in detail and told us every interesting thing about the land and answered all of our questions with a smile.

We will definitely be back and recommending to friends

A wonderful Back country journey, through a rugged Deer and Cattle station in the picturesque Lewis Pass, Canterbury.
Reminiscent & nostalgic of a lifetime working in the forests and High country of NZ.

The New Owners of this Mountain and Back country 4x4 experience, Adam and Jen go out of their way to ensure their clients are well fed and catered for, and accommodated comfortably.
Adam impressed me with his energy, knowledge, people skills and willingness to pass on critical Mountain safety as well as 4x4 driving knowledge to his clients on our trip.

Thank you for a wonderful time Adam & Jen!

Hi Sandi & Phil,

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to see more stunning scenery that we would never have found on our own.
Both the Rainbow Road and Mount Somers trips were up there with the earlier tours you have provided. Just as much information, enthusiasm and laughter as ever.

Paul & Lee

A truly amazing day out! Sandi and Phil took great care of us, with lovely homemade food and great stories and perspectives on what we were looking at. It felt like a real off the beaten path experience, with breathtaking scenery in every direction, and some fun puddles to plough through :)

We ended the day tired and happy, having had a great adventure - can't recommend highly enough.
