First time on a quad, I felt wary! But with the good training provided by the guides, I took the plunge with confidence. I had good fun and look forward to riding a quad bike again. Thanks guys.

If you love quad biking then you will love the Nomad Safari experience. Great quad bikes and friendly and competent guides. Great views over Queenstown and lots of fun and adventure to be had. We had a ball!

Hi, The quad bikes are easy to ride, but we do not take riders under the age of 16. Fitness level is not an issue at all. Look forward to seeing you!
