We purchased a two person buggy ride for $230 NZD under the Impression that we would both be able to drive, given that there were so many spots along the way where we could of had the opportunity to swap over and the fact that both me and my partner a very experienced buggy drivers given we own our own ones at home we thought that this would have been more than possible. Given this the $230 was very over priced for what we thought was a very G rated, primary school level, follow the leader tour. I wouldn't recommend this to any one who likes adventure as it was very misleading and boring driving around over the same track over and over. Also my helmet was very itchy not sure if they had made sure it was sanitised since its last user!

This is so disappointing and we are so sorry you did not enjoy your experience. We do not normally let our drivers and passengers switch over as we have found that as our customers get more familiar with the vehicle we can give them new challenges. Our tours are amazing and adrenalin-filled and we have an amazing backyard to play in with hectares of area and we have the opportunity to go where we like and make new tracks. All of our helmets get cleaned and disinfectant after every use. We will be looking into this tour and speaking to the guide to ensure that this does not happen to anyone else again, as our goal is everyone getting what they want out of the tour. If you would like to contact us we would like to offer you both a free tour each with your own vehicle so you can both drive. Truly sorry and we look forward to showing you both a good time.

Yes, this is awesome, we are so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review. We have a breathtaking backyard and it even blows us away every day when the weather allows us to see the beautiful Glacier and Southern Alps. We do love our jobs and ensuring all our customers have a fun time.

We did this on a grey day in Franz Josef, and had an absolute blast. Dora and Angus are amazing guides, the scenery is incredible. We opted for the buggy - just felt right for us, rather than a quad bike. The 18 year old drove, and I was a passenger, you could get a third person in a buggy, but it would be a stretch. You are out for a full two hours, through rainforest, sand and stones. Fabulous views all the way. So much fun, highly recommended!

We are the perfect activity to do on a wet or cloudy day as we have a saying the "wetter the better" always!!! We thrive on ensuring that every customer has a blast. The buggies are amazing and go everywhere the quads go and are so easy to drive as they have a steering wheel and foot brake and accelerator. We do agree with you completely even though the buggies are 3 seaters it would be a squeeze with three adults. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review, we really appreciate it.

Amazing Time! The instructor was the coolest. She made it fun while also being safety conscious of everyone on the tour. Worth the full price! Don't even bother asking for a discount because they deserve to be paid full price. Loved it, I recommend it, and I would easily do it again. The rainforest section with all the mud was my partner and I's favourite part. Thanks for the awesome time!!!

hanks so much for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it. We have the coolest backyard and love showing it off.... the mud and water is our favourite part too. Safety is the number one concern followed closely by fun, we are so pleased you enjoyed your off-roading experience.
