One Off the Bucket List
02 September 2019
Bought as a Christmas present by my children as I've always wanted to drive a Defender. Although I was very excited beforehand on the morning of my experience I was quite nervous but once Andy, our marvellous instructor, had explained the technical side of how an off-road vehicle works I was really looking forward to getting behind the wheel. I absolutely loved every minute of it. It was great fun and I would love to do it again! Thanks for Andy for making it such a memorable experience.

Very fun off-roading experience
23 July 2018
I went off-roading in a specialised 4x4 vehicle on some incredibly tough terrain. It was extraordinary what the vehicle could do and very fun learning how differently you have to use the vehicle to a regular car in order to navigate that sort of environment

Best Gift 4x4 off road Experience Thruxton
15 February 2016
Yesterday I enjoyed a fantastic experience of driving a Landrover Defender on a off road track at Thruxton near Andover, The whole experience from start to finish was brilliant, the instructor was very knowledgeable and guided you round the track and explained in layman terms on how to tackle every obstacle, gradually building on your skills with every obstacle getting slightly more challenging. Then at the end of the session you were given free time to go anywhere you wanted on the track and have a play. Great day thx

So much fun!
31 January 2015
Got this as a gift from my girlfriend, and absolutely loved it. The instructor, Ken, knew a lot about his LR Defender so not only taught us how to drive it properly but also how it works. I was very nervous at first but Ken is very patient and calm and an excellent teacher. There is a wide variety of obstacles on this course that you would likely encounter when going off-roading. Recommend this for anyone who has never driven a proper 4x4 and would like to get behind the wheel.

Not what I expected
23 September 2014
Thought this experience was going to take you off road. Stayed within an area designated to show how a Land Rover works on various terrain. More of a training course than an off road experience. Learnt a lot but was not what I signed up for. So Disapointed with my day out.

Thruxton 4x4 experience
21 September 2014
Just had great time on the 4x4 experience at Thruxton, it was exciting, nerve wracking, physical and well as very educating. The knowledgeable instructors make that little bit of extra difference. Will probably go again with friends

Thruxton 4X4
14 May 2011
A really enjoyable event. Great instructor. Just the 3 of us in a L/R Defender so 40 minutes driving each in a 2 hour event. Ken, our instructor was patient and informative. He explained the techniques clearly and set us some demanding tasks. He was like your best school-teacher whom you wanted to impress. The vehicle could perform tasks which are hard to believe and all 3 of us really enjoyed the time, even though we took it in turns to muck things up! Good value: informative and entertaining.

Father's Day Gift
25 March 2011
My siblings and I bought our Dad this Off Road 4x4 driving experience for Father's Day 2010, he's only just got round to doing it, he said it was good, the only thing is he was meant to drive a Landrover Discovery but they drove Landrover Defenders instead, which was a bit annoying, the reason we chose this off road experience was because my Dad loves the Landrover Discovery!!!
