So much fun, the guide was great and knowledgeable. Amazing view from the top and so fun going backwards! Would do again but probably do the combo if we had more time

Thanks for your review. Combining the Skywire & Quad bikes is a great way to enjoy the scenery and adding a bit of excitement along the way. It only adds approx. 10minutes to your bike tour. Such a shame you did not have time but its a great excuse to come back! More

Our family went here and were not disappointed! The sky-wire was awesome. The guide who drove us to the top was friendly and helpful. Staff were very welcoming. Great views from the platform and a thrilling ride all the way down. Will be coming back!

Good fun but finished all to soon. Staff very nice. We only did the sky wire so can't say about the other activities. Just cost too much for what we did compared to other activities in the region.

Thanks for your review. We are sorry that you were unhappy with the price. It is very hard to compare prices with other activities in nelson as there is nothing like the Skywire in the World. Its a once in a life time experience, one that we hope you will never forget. More

The Flying Fox at Happy Valley adventures was easily a highlight of our trip to New Zealand! The drive up to the flying fox was a bit alarming at spots, but the views at the top were stunning. We had the facility to ourselves and sat in the two middle seats. We wore what we thought of initially as goofy... More

My husband and I did the 4-wheel bay view and zip line adventure. It was great fun, Tom the guide was really great and really helped with the little parts of the the tour that were a little scary. We recommend visiting!

We did the combo quad bike ride and skywire. What a great time we had. Our guide was friendly and very amenable to any requests we had. The skywire is a brilliant ride that is not to be missed. Thoroughly recommended.

So pleased we decided to visit Happy Valley Adventures and take the plunge to go on the Skywire . We weren't too sure we would do it at first (being 60+ and past our daredevil days) but Evan had us laughing on our drive to the top & our nerves eased and so glad we did - one of the... More

Without any prior reservation, Happy Valley Adventures were able to pick us up from our hotel in Nelson the day we called. We did an ATV tour with 9 other people and 2 guides, as well as the Skywire. The guides were friendly, helpful and safety conscious. The views from the top on the ATV ride were amazing. But the... More
