They take photos as you go so no need for you to take your camera which is great. Will definitely return! “Do not miss! ” Do not miss this unforgettable experience, the most incredible views and so much fun. Karl and Maria are such lovely people, could not have made us more welcome. One of the best things I've ever done. Thanks again! “Unique to the brim!” With the Alpine Crossing cancelled, we still wanted to do something adventurous. Skeptical about this place being a generic and dull business, we soon realised it was the most unique, fun-filled experience offered by two of the most genuine people we've met. Both Karl and Maria were exceptional hosts/guides - the quad biking route was terrific (the real deal!) and they even sat down for a nice cuppa + banter with us afterwards. Highly recommended for all ages, would definitely come back. Visited December 2016
