Awesome morning

We had an awesome morning out, Bruna, our guide, was fabulous, from the time we were picked up to the time we were dropped off. A fun way to go off roading!

Nomads quad biking fun

We had fantastic guides Sam & Jo who were very much safety first. They did a great job of explaining & showing us everything so we felt safe & comfortable. Then they took us around a beautiful part of NZ to explore on quad bikes, lots of fun all round!

Hi guys, thank you for your kind words. Glad to know the boys took care of you up the hill and that they made your experience even more special. We appreciate you so much, thank you for adventuring with us!

Like a kindergarten

The view going there is great, but if you want some fun with the quad bikes, this is not for you. The guides makes the trip boring with their strict rules, and all you get to do is follow the line in a slow paste, like if your kindergarten teacher took the class out for a walk... But the view was nice. Would not recommend

From Nomad Quads - Quad Bike - ATV Tour

Hi Frederik, Thank you for taking the time in providing us with your feedback. Can you confirm when you went on your trip and who was your guide? In larger groups we like to split the group and categorise as per ability. When you mentioned if someone wants fun, what do you mean exactly? Speed, mud sliding or other? Thank you again and looking forward to your response. Nomad Safaris Team.

Disappointing experience

General housekeeping: A well run expedition with hotel pickup and drop off as well as safety gear (goggles, protective jacket, pants and boots). Negatives: My mate and I had booked the quad biking tour in winter and the day of the tour happened to be the start of the snow season. Didn’t think too much of it as it clearly says on their site “we go ahead regardless of the weather”. Got picked up from the hotel as per usual and all was well throughout the safety briefing. 30% of the way through the course, instructor gets stuck in knee deep snow and makes the call to turn back. We get told we would get a full refund. We ride the ATV’s back and upon returning to town get told that because the expedition lasted the whole 4 hours, Nomad has done their job of providing a satisfactory experience. Was even told that others would be “frothing” over the experience we had and the onus was on me, the consumer of the service, to call ahead of time and ensure the snow storm would not be impacting our safety. A bunch of bollocks. Frothing over what exactly? If I wanted an experience to wait around for half the tour while standing around in knee deep snow I would take the gondola to the Remarkables not go quad biking. Lesson learnt: No matter how cool it seems and no matter what these guys tell you, don’t bother going ahead with the tour in a snow storm. They’ll make you wait around in poor weather conditions and charge you for it. Plenty of other companies out there that provide a similar experience and won’t charge you unnecessarily.
