“I have just returned from my first trip with Barrie in my 20 year old Defender. I have immediately booked to go to Morocco in April of 2023! Portugal was my first 'overland' experience though I've been green laning in the UK for over 20 years. To say that I was impressed is a massive understatement. Barrie was professional from the moment I enquired about the trip until the moment we said goodbye in Portsmouth. Barrie made the whole 'overland' experience amazing from dawn to dusk. It was a true adventure and he made me feel part of something special and extraordinary... the like of which you read about in magazines and books and dream of but until you've actually done it you have no idea. Barrie's years of experience really do count! The catering is amazing and you can just focus on driving and having fun. Nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend Barrie and Active 4X4 100%. I have nothing but dust, mud and smiles as I think back to the last two weeks. Best trip of my life, and I've been all over the world. Barrie is a legend!” Malcolm Brown                                                                                                                                                              more reviews
