AWESOME!!!!! Didn't know what to expect with being of the 'older' generation but what fun we had. Karl and Maria made us feel so welcome, they really looked after us. After Karl had finished the health and safety stuff we finally got on the quad bikes. After a practice run our first stop was feeding the Alpacas with the carrots that Maria gave us, then we were off. Karl took us up to where the old tram tracks were, now an adventure cycle way. On the way we stopped off to look at the very rare NZ blue mushroom - the one that is on our $50 Note, amazing!!

A last minute decision to do something local after the Crossing and a chance view at a poster lead us to this wee gem of an experience. Karl, ably supported by Maria, was just fun and informative. The quad biking was excellent for novices and experienced riders alike. Karl made our most nervous group member at ease and everyone was buzzing by the end. Birthday girl had a go with Karl on the Polaris Hot Lap and didn’t stop giggling for about 2 hours. Great stuff Karl and Maria. Thanks for your Kiwi hospitality!!!

This is a must do for everyone, we loved it, our guide was awsome, patient, funny and made for a awsome day. When we finished we wanted to leave a tip it was so much fun and they declined and advised us of a lovely place to have lunch. Theres no rushing you get more then what you pay for! Thankyou and wish we knew about this place before booking accomadation as it's very comfortable and will be back to stay as well as more rides.

What a day! We had an absolute blast with Karl out on the bikes. He was thorough with his instruction and we had the best day ever! Only booked 2 hours and we were chatting so much we ended up being out much longer! Karl was so knowledgeable about the area and just a lovely guy. He made the ride so much fun taking us over hills and mud and we even fed some alpacas. He took tons of photos too! Highly recommend, well worth the money! María also suggested some places to eat nearby which was awesome! Thanks María and Kris! We’ll be back!

Absolutely incredible - a massive thank you to the supportive and friendly team! As a first time quad bike rider I didn’t know what to expect but the team was so helpful and encouraged me to try different things to ensure that I walked away with the best experience (and lots of laughs). We will definitely be back!
