    I would like to book a group of approximately 10 for quad biking on the 29th of August. How much per person for just the quad biking?

      Hi there,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      The cost per person is at least $85 since that is the minimum cost that we can find on the website as of this writing. Depending on the location, the prices vary but mostly the cost is above $100. To have more information about this, please click on where it says “Get deal” to take advantage of a discount from Adrenaline.

      Please send me a message if you need anything else. :)
