Such a great day out Colin was a great teacher, the track in Robin Hoods bay was great with lots of different obstacles to climb and maneuver on. The land rover was great and Colin's knowledge of all things Land rover was endless. I really enjoyed the green lanes on the moors and crossing the rivers in the afternoon. A great Christmas present.

Really glad to hear you enjoyed your day out in the Land Rover. We are very lucky to have such a great spot on the cliffs above Robin Hood's Bay on a natural hillside, giving us plenty of angles and variations in ground conditions to test both vehicle and driver. The rivers on the day of your visit were at pretty much the maximum level possible for the vehicle, so you really got to see the route at its best. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, and hope to maybe see you again in the future. Cheers, Colin.

This was a birthday treat for our daughter's 13th birthday...FANTASTIC!!! Colin is so good at his job....incredibly calm and reassuring, our daughter had never driven a vehicle before and I was unsure as to how much she'd enjoy it and how long before she got tired, but she was engaged for the whole session. Plus this is probably one of the few experiences that you book in advance that won't be hampered by the weather - it was very cold and wet the day we went which actually added to the excitement. Followed by fish and chips in Whitby = perfect day out :-) This experience is definitely worth every penny and we are already planning on another session hopefully in the spring.

I really appreciate you taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor, as it builds a great resource for potential future customers to see how others have enjoyed their visits here. We're definitely an all weather activity, and as you say, the extra rain and therefore mud just adds to the excitement. No previous driving experience is no problem here, in fact sometimes it's best to start from scratch, and you saw how quickly we get our juniors driving onto serious off road terrain. Great to meet up with you all, and hope to see you again in the future. Cheers, Colin

Thanks for your very kind comments Iona. Really pleased you had fun and enjoyed your day here. You couldn't have visited at a better time to get the extremes of terrain, with the centre very slippery, and the rivers VERY deep! Hope to see you again in the future. Cheers, Colin.

My son had a fabulous time learning to drive properly off road during his 2.5 hour session. Colin is really knowledgeable and engaging teacher and the course had so many different challenges. Would highly recommend for novices or more experience drivers wanting to improve. Great fun, thanks Colin

Thanks so much for leaving a review of your day. You were my last customers before Lockdown 2.0, so I'm glad we got you in before the restrictions were tightened, and I appreciate you leaving a review so others can see what's on offer once we reopen after lockdown. Our site does indeed have lots of different challenging areas, each requiring slightly different approaches, so it's a great way to learn how to get the best out of these amazingly capable vehicles. Glad you enjoyed yourselves, and hope to maybe see you again in the future. Cheers, Colin.
