Delta Discovery Reviews
Extraordinary scenery, great quality gear, and super friendly service from Andy the owner. What a place. more »
A seriously good tour, stunning scenery with lots of photo opportunities. The electric buggies are easy to manouver with lots of stops along the trail, no rush and the silence is amazing. more »
Andy is a great guy! You’re really on your own as you drive around conservation areas. It’s easy to navigate with nice scenery all around. You won’t get dirty and you can do the activity even in light rain. Would recommend!
I cannot recommend this tour enough, Andy was an absolute legend of a host, he was super friendly and worked his way around the impossible (no power!). We were still able to use the 4x4 and it was like nothing was wrong! The vehicles themselves are absolutely fantastic and easy to drive. The actual course itself is really easy to navigate and takes you to some amazing locations along the dart river. Andy has implemented some points of interests which means there is something to see every few m! The view of Isengard from the river is amazing and if you get a good day, it's phenomenal!
