Was good fun and great scenery out there. Did feel more like a slow scenery ride, could have been alot more faster, fun and more riskier or adrenaline filled

So sorry to hear that you did not get what you wanted out of the tour, as it is our mission to ensure that everyone has an amazing experience. We split our tours if there is varying capability levels. We always keep family and travelling companions together, so that they can make memories with one another. We are always trying to push the bikes and riders to their limits, but safety is always our number one priority and we will never do anything that would jeopardize anyone's safety. Thankyou for your feedback.

Family first timers

A huge thank you for being so patient. Our family had a fantastic time and would highly recommend any other families to give it a go. Will definitely come again on our next visit and we might be lucky enough to see the glaciers.
