“Booked a Range Rover Sport, Got an LR4”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Liked the instructor and what we learned. However, we booked a Range Rover Sport and had to settle on an LR4. This took away from the learning experience and did not do much for them selling us a new car.

“Fantastic staff, neat experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

Land Rovers are the off-reading equivalent to a BMW. Beautifully over-engineered to take whatever you can throw at it. The Land Rover Experience in Manchester offers a full day introduction (along with other options) to just how capable these vehicles are. The full day option includes a morning session on the equivalent of an SUV obstacle course to teach you techniques before taking you on public trails in the afternoon to have a less predictable encounter with nature. The pace of the day and the diversity of off road encounters makes this a perfect experience for 2-3 people to "test drive" a Land Rover in a very unique way. The staff was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about off reading techniques as well as the entire Land Rover line of vehicles. All of this does come at a price though with a full day experience priced at $1,200 for up to five people. For the right combination of novice off roadie and car lover, we certainly found it to be an unforgettable experience.

“Excellent experience and knowledgeable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

I gave a one-hour experience to my husband as a birthday present. I have to say it was an excellent choice. Our instructor was Cortland. He was very knowledgeable and thorough about the off-roading capabilities of the vehicle as well as the terrain we were about to encounter. He was also witty and had a great sense of humor which was a good combination as my husband and I had never been off-roading before.

He gave us useful tips of what to look for and understand the capabilities of the vehicle as well as the surroundings. And we actually learned new useful things about driving and "shuffle steering".

I would recommend the experience to anyone from novice to experienced as they have a tailored approached.

Would definitely do again.

“Fun day off roading in the snow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

We went up for the Land Rover Owner's Day event. We got to drive our own vehicles for this event. The trails were snow covered, so that was a different experience then we normally would have off roading. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and helpful (and patient).

“this was great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

A very interesting and informative class. While it is clearly is a paid infomercial, I did learn how to drive in diverse terrain. It was Fun.
