An awesome trip, travelled over some fantastic trails and saw the best views of Queenstown from remote locations.

Very good safety briefings, clear explanation trip was at right pace with good commentary and ample time on the bikes. Jono and Sam brought a real professional and friendly approach to the tour it felt like being with good mates by the end of the day.

Quads had enough power in really good safe condition would highly recommend this trip and Nomad Safari's to anyone looking for the best quad experience.

Fantastic tour. We started from getting familiar with the Quad bike in the training ground. Then we drove up the Queenstown hill. The experience was so cool and we had so much fun driving the rocky mountain road. The panoramic view of Lake Wakatipu was fascinating. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you for bring the amazing Quad bike experience to us.

Fantastic trip with our local guide Ben. Made us feel confident handling the bikes with the training prior to setting off on the tour. Ben was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the local scenery. (He also makes a great T or coffee at the halfway point.!). I throughly recommend this tour and a must to do while visiting QT

My partner and I booked this for our trip away, and it was by far one if the coolest experiences I have ever done in New Zealand. Such a thrill but we both felt we got the correct training and had great guidance from our tour guide Joe to feel safe. Joe was such an incredible tour guide , and catered the experience to us and our confidence on the bikes. We even got a warm coffee and tea with biscuits when we had a stop. Unbelievable views and we were lucky enough to be riding through the snow at the highest points. Can't recommend this experience enough, everyone has to do this if you love good views and an adrenaline kick.

This was the coolest experience ever. I'm a 51 year old mother of 2 and my friend is a 43 mother of 2, so we decided to leave the kids at home and have a Queenstown "Girls Trip" adventure. The Quad Bike Safari Tour we did with our fabulous guide "Bruna from Brazil" was incredible and we had the time of our lives. Learning to ride a quad bike was easier than we thought and the safety protocols Nomad follow were top notch. They were very thorough and safe. Everything you need is provided and the views and outdoor scenery of Queenstown were spectacular. We had non stop fun and excitement the whole time. Thanks Bruna for an awesome tour and thanks Nomad for making it all possible. I highly recommend this tour to everybody and dealing with Nomad is very easy. They are trustworthy and extremely customer service focused.

So much fun!
I had never ridden a 4WD - the teaching and lessons were very clear and safety was clearly a priority. Beginners will also enjoy this.
The views are incredible and fun factor high!
Bruna our guide was great and knew alot about the area.
So much fun!

Absolutely fantastic day with a great guide. My partner and I were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour. Spent a good few hours exploring some private land with some extraordinary views. Even got to have a go at some more advanced off road tracks on the quad bikes. A lot of fun and I feel that it was a really value for money experience. Especially with a complimentary hot chocolate and biscuits at the summit. No experience necessary as they take you through a basic handling course prior to departing.
