5*

A great experience! I went with two friends as two drivers and a passanger but they were more than happy for us to all have a good a driving which was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide, who allowed us to go at our own speed as we became more comfortable with the quad bikes. Great pathways through the first with lots of dips and water to drive through. Waterproof outfit, boots, gloves and helmets provided. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to do something different from the norm. 😁

From Franz Josef - Quad Bikes - 2 hour Across Country Tour

Sounds like you guys made the most of being able to both have a turn at driving if you share a quad! Quite a few people tend to take the first little bit nice and slow then as they get more confident are able to go a bit faster. Thanks Becca for the review - ACQB Team

Awesome activity

We had a wonderful time. It was thrilling! At first we had some difficulties controlling the monster bike, but the guides were so encouraging and after getting over the fear of toppling over the bike, we were flying across the terrain with confidence! One of the best activity we did! Won’t go wrong with this! And thank you guides! You were all wonderful!

Best quad biking experience Ever!

Can not recommend this enough! Sarah was our guide and From the moment we met her she was kind, hilarious and very knowledgeable about not only her role but the environment and had all the area facts, which put the whole group at ease. Everyone is able to go at their own pace, so if you are a speed demon like me then you can hoon through the terrain or if you’re like my friend, who felt like a toddler learning how to walk for the first time, then you aren’t rushed at the back of the pack. This really is for everyone as our group ranged in age from young to like 70ish too! Loved every second of it and so did my friend who overcame her fears, and tears on this journey.
