Brilliant - great fun, great scenery!
Aug 2021
Wow, we loved our off road quad tour. Professionally run, Libby our tour guide was awesome - made sure we had fun and stayed safe. Was my first time driving a quad and clear easy instructions as well as the starter course at the base was all I needed to feel confident and enjoy the tour to the fullest. Loved the scenery and track through the rain forest and river bed - stunning views!

The views are amazing if the wild west coast weather allows it and our terrain is so diverse which makes it exciting. All our guides love teaching our customers how to drive our vehicles and giving them new challenges while keeping them safe and having fun. Thank you for the 5 stars and the awesome review, it really means a lot.

Staff rude behaviour
Aug 2021 • Friends
The views were great! but won’t recommend just because one of the staff (adora) she was really rude, behaved like we are kids in primary school! Anyways I never seen any employee that ill-mannered to the customers and Hopefully you guys get worth full experience if you do this tour.

As we have already responded to your review on the 12th August 2021. We take your safety very serious. You were informed multiple times of what was acceptable on our tours and the consequences of unsafe behaviour. You got multiple warnings and still proceeded with dangerous behaviour, we hate growling but we would rather tell you off, than have you hurt yourself or others. Our tours are amazing and all our guides are exceptional but we do it in a safe manner.

Lots of fun in the rain.
We were disappointed that the weather turned meaning our helicopter tour was cancelled. Searching for something else to do we stumbled across this tour and had an awesome time in the rain across different terrain

We have a saying "wetter the better", we love it when it rains as it means there is more water for us to play in and a great activity when scenic flights are not going. We provide wet weather clothing and gumboots to keep you dry and have safe storage at our base for anything you do not want to take on tour. Thank you for taking the time to write an amazing review of us, we really appreciate it.

Rude Dora
Aug 2021 • Friends
Dora needs to learn how to talk to people
We are first timers with the riding and we received the rudest behaviour probably won’t recommend this to anyone else
Not sure why she was rude to us
We don’t ride these bikes everyday so try to be nice to other people but you ruined our day so thanks for that

As guides, it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of all our customers, and if we are rude it will be because you have been made aware of what is acceptable on our tours and had multiple warnings about your unsafe driving. We really do not like telling anyone off as it wrecks our day too, but we would much rather tell you off and have you dislike us than have you hurt yourself or other customers. We have an epic off-road tour which gets to play in amazing terrain with the most breathtaking views, we love pushing our customers capability but do it in a safe manner.

Fun afternoon
Jul 2021
A great way to spend the afternoon; with our family of five we got two of the 'side-by-side' vehicles, and had a great time. The Tour Guide was excellent - informative and patient. Really appreciated being supplied with all the right gear to wear so our clothing didn't get soaked and we could just focus in having fun!

Quad biking fun!
Jul 2021
An awesome experience in a beautiful part of the country. My 16 year old drove his one bike and my 13 year old had a blast as the passenger on mine. So much fun given the recent rains! Lovely friendly tour guides too - felt totally safe!

Fabulous from start to finish! Highly professional with clear instructions and tailored the experience to all levels. The terrain changed so went through bush, sand, rivers. Loved it.

Jun 2021 • Couples
Awesome fun with options for everyone! Their course is perfect, with a bit of everything (forest, beach riding etc) and a LOT of big splashes! The fill-body wet weather gear they provide is very reliable, too. Guide was good fun and took safety seriously, too.
