Had a great ride with Merv (Owner) who not only hooked me up with the perfect size bike for my riding level and size (his one of a few Honda CRF 230's, perfect for my 178cm height 77kg weight as I am a novice rider), I also got a spectacular ride deep into the hills of Rotorua. Hit a few... More

This was my first time on a bike and Merv was the best teacher - extremely patient and after a few tumbles had me riding with confidence. I was lucky enough to pick a really beautiful morning to do this and was treated to the best views over Rotorua and even to Mt Tarawera! I highly recommend this activity, it's... More

My 14 year old son and I took a 2 hour ride with Merv during our vacation. All I can say is that it was fantastic. My son hasn’t ridden before and Merv took great care to show him how to ride and navigate the trails. He was very patient!! Couldn’t recommend this enough for families willing to try something...

Starting the day off inexperienced in Dirt Biking, and with the rain creating muddy trails and tracks, this combination suggested we could be in for a long day. However, Merv (tour guide) was very helpful and cheerful in teaching and directing us throughout the day. Quickly grasping the skills we toured over many hills and trails with great fun. Definitely... More

My boyfriend has rode dirt bikes since he was a kid and thought it would be a fun way to experience the beautiful New Zealand countryside. He even called the day before and asked about the tour offered. The guide assured him it would be to his advanced riding level and that all gear would be provided. What a let... More

Hi Slonkie, Sorry for your disappointing experience with Pure Dirt. Our current ride area is not suitable for advanced riders so when he arrived I suggested to take him to another ride area and he said that he didn't have time, But he was still keen to ride the tracks we had. If he had mentioned that he was not... More

I have only been riding for a year but also never done anything off road so was apprehensive. Matt was our tour guide and was... More

I'm an average rider from Sweden who had a great time today. Booked an hour tour on "bookme" for 105$, upgraded my bike for 40$ though. Everything was great, only wish I'd taken an 1,5 or 2 hour ride instead.
