Excellent safety briefing by Malcolm at the onset. We had previously done quad biking in Australia (west & east coasts) & in Hawaii but this one beats them all. The water crossings were great (and challenging at times) & we were even snowed on! Thank you Malcolm for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Our team of eight experienced an amazing full day quad biking adventure with Malcolm and Bradley. We had a range of abilities, ages, sizes and differing levels of enthusiasm, however, we all gave it a go and in the end everyone had a fantastic day. We were all impressed with the professional service, patience, teaching and guiding along the way... More

I had a great time on the quads, especially with the different terrains we went on. I never had much experience with quads but I felt safe and in control for the whole time because of Malcolm was excellent with helping us through the different areas. The lunch spot was so beautiful and a great place to take plenty of... More

This is amazing quad biking, breathtaking views and some great stories! You will be fording streams (real ones, not just gentle trickles), ploughing through mud, (the deep stuff that needs an occasional push to get you through), and climbing some pretty steep hills! If you like excitement without the bubblewrap - this is it! (Malcom also provides gentler rides for... More

We had an amazing full day trip! Beautiful scenery, lots of rush and adrenaline combined with a peaceful lunch in the middle of nowhere, surrounded only by nature. It's one of the best experiences I've had!! Truly recommend it. We just loved every second of it!

We had a great 1/2-day trip despite the all-day rain. Don't let the weather affect whether you're going or not, it really won't ruin the experience as you're having so much fun. We hadn't driven quad bikes before, but we felt totally safe all the time, thanks to the thorough safety lesson. It was amazing to drive across quite a... More

if you're going to Tongariro with friends, young or old, you must do the quads as it's real fun. We drove all the way from Paeroa to Tongariro, doing the mountain air scenic flights and then the afternoon quads. I felt once and my jeans and jacket is filled with mud but I was laughing... laughing throughout the hours doing... More
