Offroad Guided Tours
Whilst we do not actively market ‘package’ greenlane or 4×4 tours, we can offer bespoke guided trips for small groups. We provide the full support of a trained guide who will not only lead the trip but will assist and spot where necessary through any complicated obstacles, a well equipped lead vehicle, handheld radios for vehicle-to-vehicle communications and all of the route planning. Depending on your group requirements we can also assist with finding/providing accommodation. We are able to organise ‘Greenlane’ trips in England and Wales and working with selected partners can offer trips on private estate land in Scotland. In addition we work closely with 4×4 training and guiding partners in Europe in order that we can offer the best guided trips further afield.

“If ever a project needs a creative way of thinking about Health and Safety, Chris Putt is your man. He’s been writing risk assessments for a global PR agency for four years and in that time has learned that no two events are ever the same. In close consultation with the rest of the team, Chris has adapted each and every event risk assessment to make sure that it allows the event to proceed as it should, while still maintaining the very highest safety standards. No detail is overlooked and every potential disaster is mitigated – an especially challenging task when the events are mostly involving journalists. With over 10 years of experience in the H&S world, his vast skill set means he has trained people in all manner of risk management, from flood water rescue to working at height. He is also one of the most experienced off-road drivers in the country. Fortunately, given the brimmed state of his garage, he is also well versed in confined space working.”
