Highlight of my trip

Hands down the highlight of my recent trip to Queenstown. Booked via BookMe which was super easy and straightforward. The trip is approximately 40 minutes (weather depending) from Queenstown. Arrived at the quad biking approximately 15 minutes before our 10am departure time. Our group consisted of 6 people, 3 men and 3 women, ranging in quad experience from never have sat on one to very confident. The guide Andy was amazing and certainly added to our fabulous experience. Remember to dress warm and the temperature certainly drops the higher you go. Unfortunately we didn’t have any snow but none the less was fabulous and the view spectacular. Spent the first 5 minutes doing a quick and informative safety briefing before we set off up the hill - what an awesome 2 hours it was. Cannot recommend this enough and is a must do when in Queenstown. Will 100% be doing on my next adventure here - the difference in weather (snow etc) would make every experience unique. .
