Amazing family excursion! Despite the rainy conditions, my family of 3 (including a 13 year old) thoroughly enjoyed this 2 hour quad bike experience. Alisa our guide was funny, interactive and very passionate about the quad bikes, local area & animals. She made this experience so much more enjoyable. Sampling the tropical fruits another unexpected bonus! If you're in Cairns with teenage kids, don't hesitate to book - your child will absolutely love it.....and yes, you'll find it exhilarating too, as this tour has now become a truly memorable family experience.

Age limit for ATV driver is 10 years old. My son is 8, we drove in buggy following my husband and daughter who rode on the ATV. It's a left hand drive which I had some experience with, so it was no problems. We had fun.

We really enjoyed riding on the quad bikes. It was a lot of fun and we did stops along the way picking fruit and also enjoying the rainforest. The Guide we had, she was really lovely and easy to connect with.

Was an awesome experience Masa made it so much fun and entertaining would highly recommend this experience.

What a fantastic experience hosted by wonderfully informed and fun team. Thank you!
