Christmas Adrenalin Activities Parties Reviews

    • "I had bought the experience for my husband for his Christmas gift and wanted to do it too. I thought we'd be in a large group but it was just us two and the instructor. It was great from the moment we arrived we were put at ease. There was not panic or stress, it was really relaxed and it felt like we were really important to them. The safety video was interesting and informative. The bikes were well maintained and did just as we were told - they didn't stall.

      It was the best experience ever and as they said we went away having achieved over our expectations. We followed our instructor round the course and he explained how to do it safely whist having fun. That made it more enjoyable. There was a lot of encouragement too.

      Would strongly recommend it and would love to do it all over again."

    • "I booked a clay pigeon shooting session as a Christmas present for my husband and two children (age 14 and 12) and they had a fantastic time. The instructor Tony was excellent and put everybody at ease straight away. He made the whole session easy to understand and fun. Hopefully we'll be back soon."

I’m usually great at buying presents for everybody, but this year when Christmas was coming around, my mind was drawing a complete blank on unique gift ideas. I didn’t want to start treating my friends and families to dull gifts- I never want to be the guy who is treating everybody to socks because they can’t think of anything better to get. So when searching online for things to get everybody in my life, I was completely struggling.

The hardest person to buy for was my older brother. Although we get along like a house on fire, we have no shared interests, so trying to find the perfect gift is a nightmare. Every single week it seems like he’s posting videos on Facebook of him and his mates taking part in some new extreme sport craze, so buying him vouchers to one of those venues would make sense. However, if he keeps taking part in new things so often, there is a very likely chance he’ll find whatever gift I get him boring by comparison. What do you buy a man whose tried everything?

When looking on The Activity People’s website for the best activity to choose from, I noticed that they offered gift vouchers. This would make for the perfect present; it would make sure he got to take part in something he loved, but he would be able to choose which sport for himself. I would definitely choose something that wasn’t exciting to him, so I couldn’t have asked for a better gift idea.

When Christmas came around, he was over the moon to receive an Activity People gift voucher. Before he’d even finished unwrapping presents from the rest of the family, he was trying to get in touch with his mates to see if they were up to go on another adventure. I was surprised they even picked up the phone- for adrenaline junkies, it turns out that taking part in extreme sports is more important than sitting through Christmas dinner!

A few weeks later, I got a text from my brother thanking me for treating him to the gift voucher. He’d been bungee jumping and could now tick another sport off his to-do list. He loved the present that much, I know exactly what I’m going to be treating him to when his birthday comes round. Thanks to the Activity People, buying him presents has been made easier.

"Loads of fun, highly recommend it :-)"
