Definitely got our monies worth with this trip. Best way to see Franz Josef Glacier.
Our guide Olivia really tailored the trip to our riding experience.

Date of experience: November 2016

Hi there,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review! We agree the best and most affordable way to see the glacier, the view still takes my breath away even 4 years in.

Thanks again for coming!

We had such an amazing time on this tour zooming through mud going up and down rocks and flying through rainforest. Jamie, our tour guide, was hilarious and really thorough. I hate to admit that we only did this activity because our heli hike was cancelled, but we are so glad we did it. I encourage you to do this tour. You won't regret it!!

Hi there,

Thank you so much for writing this great review! Haha don't worry a lot of our customers say they only did this as it was a back up plan to the glacier but then they actually end up enjoying it so much more than they thought. Good to see that happened to you too! :).

Thanks again!

Rain and low cloud stopped us doing a helicopter ride to Glacier and only in Franz Josef for a full day. Decided to give Cross Country Quad bikes a go. First of all very very friendly staff (Sarah on desk in particular and the two guides on the ride were very experienced and keen to ensure we had a good time in safe conditions!) The only disappointment of the visit was the time it took to get started! Advertised as 12:00 and told to get there for 11:45 we never sat on a bike until 12:40 - by the time you walk to container and get togged up in the boots and waterproofing. I would say that this was an 80 minute actual quad driving experience. Saying that the experience is brilliant! You can decide to be a passenger or a driver. The excellent feature was that you have a practice first and if someone feels uncomfortable or lacks confidence having done the test track then you can revert to a passenger and have a $90 refund. This claim is genuine as my wife decided to do exactly this without any Shane or criticisms from the instructors/guides just total understanding.
I am in my 60's am not a motorbike either- so can recommend this for all ages!!
You ride st an excellent pace across rock beds, forest trails and river beds. Some is tricky terrain but filling the guides provides you with the confidence to push the quads to perform!!
A brilliant experience, well thought out, well guided and well enjoyed!!

Hi there,

Thank you for writing this very detailed, great review! Yes unfortunately with big groups it can take awhile to get everyone suited up and taught what to do, the whole experience is advertised as 2 hours but with 1.5 hours on the bike, we'd love to have you back so we can get you that 10 minutes extra in next time! We are glad that you still had a brilliant time though and thank you so much for taking the time to write this fantastic review.

Thanks again!

The track is super fun and full of surprises. We drove in the river bed, on stones, in the forest, in the fields. Great guide too and felt very safe.

Just got done with this tour and it was excellent! It was pouring rain but I think that only added to the adventure. Definitely worth it!

Hi Kurt,

Thank you for writing such a great review! Yes we say the wetter the better :D and we certainly do get a lot of rain here in Franz Josef.

Thanks again for coming!
