We took on the KTM 350's. These bikes were superb! - A total test of mind and body. You get so busy just concentrating on the sheer speed and performance you almost forget to look at the beauty of the Canterbury outback. I highly recommend this tour for adventure seekers.

Great experience! Never been on quads before this however have done dirt biking. This did not disappoint at all. The scenery was fantastic, the track was challenging and great fun! You do the scenic part up the hills first and then 2nd half is smashing it through mud, rocky paths and rivers! I would do this again and again!

We did the 2 hour summit tour on quad bikes and it was the highlight of our visit to the South Island so far! Neither of us had any quad bike experience but we received excellent guidance from our tour guide Ash who was friendly, helpful and had interesting local knowledge. The bikes and all equipment provided were excellent. The... More

Booked with Adventure Trailrides based on the good reviews. The ride was nice and easy even for beginners like us, and took us through vast farm land and up some hills to see some great views! We also went through some low lands and over a few small streams. Quad bikes were easy to maneuver. We feel that signage to... More

We had a great afternoon riding quad bikes. The trip was for around 1.5 hours and was a lot of fun. We travelled over the farm and up to the railway line with views over the Waimak gorge. Was a throughly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. The trip was well organised and was expertly run by Ash. Definitely an... More

We had an absolute ball on the full day tour. I was a beginner, so a little nervous at the start. Although that didn't last long. Grenville was so patient and made sure I was totally comfortable. It was such a great experience and I can't recommend it enough! We will definitely be back. A***

My friend and I had a great time learning how to ride the quad bikes! Ashleigh showed all around all the best spots and was so patient while we were learning! We got to see beautiful scenery, drive all over the hillsides and drive through mud puddles!! Was a great way to spend our afternoon

My husband and I had a great time on a quad bike tour with Adventure trail rides! Grenville and Ashleigh were great guides who are very friendly and accommodating. Was meant to do a summit tour but due to bad weather they offered for a date change but we went anyway and they just adapted the tour to suit. Would... More
