Absolutely breath taking views, plus awesome fun

What an awesome experience, absolutely loved riding the quad through the most crazy water logged tracks, then through the river flats, the scenery is stunning. Great host, Livvy was awesome, informative and a Crack up. Definitely a highlight for my holiday. Will definitely be recommending this to our family and friends, a must do.

You are a star for taking the time to review us and we are so stoked that you enjoyed our off-road adventure. We have a saying here "the wetter the better" and it truly is amazing when there is water everywhere. Livvy is a star and like all of us here we love taking people out and showing off our amazing back while having a laugh along the way.

Fun, Fun, Fun

Was an amazing experience. As well as fun, you also got to see the beautiful rain forest and the glacier in the distance. The organizer made it fun but still made sure all was safe. I would do it again, and recommend it. You certainly get your monies worth

With amazing deals on Bookme you definitely get value for money on our 2-hour off-road adventure. We have an amazing backyard where we ride out from Franz Josef township through an amazing rainforest, grasslands and into the riverbed, where if it is fine you can get spectacular views of the Southern Alps and Franz Josef Glacier. We all love our job and thrive on ensuring all our customers have a fun and memorable experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wicked review.
