Door to Door Service - very happy 81 and 92 year olds
Feb 2021
This review is a bit late as did this in Feb 21. V8 Trike tours went out of their way to help make a very special birthday present for my parents. They were great communicators and very considerate of their passengers.
Highly recommend it, my parents are still talking now in June 21.
Thank you so much

An Easter Treat
Apr 2021 • Family
We shouted my niece & her 2 young children a ride on the V8 Trike Tour. They absolutely loved it & Kathryn gave us all a thrilling, exhilarating & informative ride around the streets of The Mount. Kathryn also took photos of us to remember this special treat. Thanks Kathryn & Nigel, we highly recommend this Tour.

Wheel Chair Accessible
Feb 2021 • Family
For Christmas we gave our 25 year old daughter a voucher for a ride on V8 Trike tours - Tauranga. She is in a wheel chair, with high special needs. We had no problem lifting/transferring her into the very accessible seat. She was very well supported with the bucket curve molded shaped seat. The squeals of excitement told us how much she loved the rumble and speed of the V8. To be able to have the wind blowing through her hair it was an amazing experience - Thanks Nigel & team

Teenage Birthday Surprise
Today we had our Mount Maunganui tour to surprise our son turning 17. Nigel was our guide and wow what an experience, both my son’s loved the thrill of going on the Motorway. Nigel was very informative of the areas we visited and thanks for the tip to visit the Mount Brewery, we thoroughly enjoyed this after our tour. I highly recommend V8 trike tours it’s a fantastic way to see all the key places riding in style.

Birthday special
May 2020 • Family
For my husband’s birthday, my mum bought our family a 4 seater v8 trike ride as a surprise. What a blast! The kids were so excited when Nigel drove up the driveway to pick us up. The drive and views up papamoa hills were fab and then the ride through welcome bay, Tauranga and down to the mount made it the perfect length cruise. We’ve never done anything like that before, but can highly recommend to anyone. A great event that we will always remember as a family.
A week later and the kids (6 & 8) are still talking about it at bed time.
Thanks Nigel!

Nice Trip
Feb 2020
Three of selected the 4 hour trike ride over the 2 hour option and were not disappointed. Very convenient since the ride began by the downtown dock area and they had parking available for our rental car. The ride included going past the beaches and into the hills to a state park where the glowworm caves were located. Our guide/narrator was a real character and entertained with his descriptions of the scenery and stories.

Absolutely sensational
Dec 2019
WOW!!!!!!! My family took me on this tour as a 75th birthday present and it was just sensational. Our driver/pilot/astronaut Dan was very knowledgeable about the scenery etc but took great delight in showing us just what a totally awesome piece of machinery the Supertrike is. Our group of 2x70+yo. 1x50+yo and an 11y0 had the best tour of NZ holiday with everything else a distant second.

You're never too old to have mind-blowing fun and this just proved it. In fact this tour alone is sufficient reason for us to return to NZ and Tauranga. Thanks Dan … you were awesome mate!!
