An awesome trip, travelled over some fantastic trails and saw the best views of Queenstown from remote locations.

Very good safety briefings, clear explanation trip was at right pace with good commentary and ample time on the bikes. Jono and Sam brought a real professional and friendly approach to the tour it felt like being with good mates by the end of the day.

Quads had enough power in really good safe condition would highly recommend this trip and Nomad Safari's to anyone looking for the best quad experience.

Had a great afternoon With Joe, on my quad bike ride up Queenstown hill and along the sheep station. We did a quick driving test before we left base to make sure I could ride. The scenery was Beautiful, and he was full of local history. Had coffee cake/biscuit up the top of the hill.
Would absolutely recommend going on one of their treks.

Fantastic trip with our local guide Ben. Made us feel confident handling the bikes with the training prior to setting off on the tour. Ben was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the local scenery. (He also makes a great T or coffee at the halfway point.!). I throughly recommend this tour and a must to do while visiting QT

Excellent guide - Avlo - thank you so much! A fantastic experience. Breathtaking views. Great coffee and cake. We've given YOU the 4 star rating.

HOWEVER - you owner dudes need to clean your act up - literally.
The gear was filthy and a dis-organised mess. Not being rude but with the lack of tourists you have time to clean up stuff.
Doesn't have to be fancy - just hang up the coats and pants outside an give 'em a good old hose down and let 'em dry naturally. Wash the gloves and pair them by size. Disinfect the crash helmets and gum boots.
And for God's sake spruce up the long drop!

Absolutely fantastic day with a great guide. My partner and I were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour. Spent a good few hours exploring some private land with some extraordinary views. Even got to have a go at some more advanced off road tracks on the quad bikes. A lot of fun and I feel that it was a really value for money experience. Especially with a complimentary hot chocolate and biscuits at the summit. No experience necessary as they take you through a basic handling course prior to departing.

Fantastic tour. We started from getting familiar with the Quad bike in the training ground. Then we drove up the Queenstown hill. The experience was so cool and we had so much fun driving the rocky mountain road. The panoramic view of Lake Wakatipu was fascinating. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you for bring the amazing Quad bike experience to us.

Private access to high country station. My driver Graeme, top bloke, very professional. We tackled some awesome terrain which the Landrover handled with aplomb. Finished off splashing along Dart River with water coming up to the bonnet at times. Fabulous day out, highly recommend.
