Amazing experience packed into a Jeep! Would 1000% do this again! Shawn and Dawn made this an amazing first overlanding / off-roading experience. They’re a wonderful team that has every step of the way thought through. It felt more than just seamless, we never had to worry about a thing (besides potentially running into a bear). And the jeep is just the coolest thing, especially once you hit gravel and put it in spider monkey mode. They’re a relatively new company so if you’re at all hesitating booking because of that, I can assure you it’s legit and will be worth every penny! Looking forward to my next trip with Terra Overland!

TERRA OVERLAND: A Must Stop Destination Shawn & Dawn were great. We’ve been to Massanutten Resort for about 4 years & were looking for something different to do. Found Terra Overland & it was totally worth it. My 7 year old son had a blast he loves Jeepin as did my wife & I. I highly recommend this experience. Shawn is passionate with the lifestyle of Overlanding & Jeepin & it doesn’t just end with the adventure. Next year I may bring out my trail Jeep & we may hit up some trails.

Terra Overland... BEST adventure ever! This was an Extraordinary experience driving this super outfitted jeep through the steep mountain trails, streams and major mud holes to the summit at Reddish Knob for a spectacular view! My husband and I have been married for 50 years and this was one of the most memorable vacation experiences of all time. It challenged us to do things we never did before... and gain tremendous confidence in our accomplishment. Shawn, our guide and owner, shared all of his knowledge and skills to create a comfortable experience... he's a patient and smart teacher. He wants everyone to have a safe and FUN time.… and we did!

Fantastic way to spend the day This is a must do when you visit Massanutten. There were three adults and two teenagers so we had two jeeps. Dawn and Shawn were great; and they even worked with us when I mistakenly booked the wrong day. They made it work anyway!! Can't thank them enough for that. Experiencing the off-road part was fun but it was just as fun being outside on a beautiful day in the national park. The views were amazing! Throughout the day, Dawn and Shawn were very personable and shared many things about the area and overlanding.No matter whether you have kids or your a group of adults, this is a must do activity.

My Adventure with Shawn at Massanutten, VA Shawn picked us up promptly at our condo as we stood in shock at how big the jeep was. He told the boys-ages 6 + 11, that the tires were 36" high, almost taller than the 6 yr. old. We took a picture of a clean jeep and away we went. Right from the start Shawn was able to make a connection with each of the boys on their level. They were so excited to go out on our way and had tons of questions and Shawn eagerly answered each one. He even found time between the questions to give us some fun facts about the areas that we were driving...read moreShawn picked us up promptly at our condo as we stood in shock at how big the jeep was.

He even found time between the questions to give us some fun facts about the areas that we were driving into. As we got to the beginning of the trail, Shawn gave us our safety talk and then went to tell us how he had to take air out of the tires and change over the suspension. The boys jumped in and the 3 of them got the jeep ready for our adventure. As we started out, Shawn showed them how to open/close the windows and asked if they wanted to open the moon roof. They jumped at the idea until we went through the first clear water puddle, and they saw how much it splashed all over the jeep. By the time we got to the mud puddles, the boys were having so much fun that the one time they forgot to put up the window and my sister and I got some mud on us. Well, that was just the funniest thing they ever saw and then we decided to change seats and they made sure the windows were closed at every mud puddle. The laughs and giggles that came out of the boys and the knowledge and friendliness of Shawn made this trip to remember and talk about for years to come. If you have a chance to go out on any of the tours-GO! you'll have a great time. You can drive yourself - with Shawn in the passenger seat to guide you along the trail or you can sit back and let him do all the driving and enjoy the view of the mountains, valley and watch out for all the wild animals that you may see on the trip. The boys actually found a baby bear paw print in the fresh mud when it was time to put the air back into the tires and put suspension back into street mode to go back down the mountain and back civilization. Great time! Will do again next time we are back in the area.read less
