So awesome!

We went on a 2 hour trip on a sunny day in Franz. Had an amazing time! We went as driver and passenger after I realised I was too uncoordinated to drive my own so I hopped on the back of my boyfriends. Track is great for beginners as well as semi experienced drivers with heaps of mud, rocks and bumpy terrain! P.S. Wear a sports bra if you've got it going on in the boobie department Would definitely go back to Franz just to do this again

Probably the best thing I've done in nz

It was just a great experience for me. Luckily I was there in the off season and we were a group of just three good riders. The track through the rainforest and the riverbed was funny. I could imagine that with bigger groups and drivers with different levels of experience it becomes boring for the good riders because you always have to wait for the others...

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

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to give us this awesome review! Sounds like you had a blast out on our track. When it comes to larger groups we almost always have two guides as each guide can take a maximum of seven bikes. However, even when the group size is smaller than seven bikes but the abilities between clients differ we will have two guides so that the more confident riders aren't stuck waiting constantly, also this allows the less confident riders to be able to drive at a comfortable pace and not have to worry about holding others up. Kind regards, -The Quad Bike Team

Great way to explore Franz Josef!

The personalised ride with our guide was great! One of the best quad bike trails ever! We got to drive through different terrains and have a closer view of Mt Cook. Being a local who has lived in Franz Josef for many years, our guide also gave us plenty of information about Franz Josef. Would highly recommend this tour especially during non-peak times of the year!

Fun and affordable

Franz Josef quad bikes was a fun and scenic way to spend a drizzly morning in Franz Josef. We went over rocks and slopes and through water and the rainforest. It took me a while to get used to controlling the bike, but once I did I had the confidence to ride faster. I thought this was a very value-for-money "adrenaline" experience.
