A unique experience. It’s powered by a 350 Chev and weighs less than a ton. Andrew deftly handles this beauty whilst providing a commentary on the sights and other points of interest. Coats and headwear provided ( you’ll need it) as you’re exposed to the elements - precisely why we did this. We enjoyed Andrew’s conduct of the tour and would recommend. Highly.
Why not 5 stars? A couple more photo stops would’ve done it.

Hi PaulW, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it's good to hear that you enjoyed the tour and being out in the elements on the trike. We realise that taking photos of the scenery, and the trike, is a big part of the tour. The trike allows for uninterrupted views which makes for great photos while we are traveling and we always stop at the best location during the tour. I am always happy to take photos for people. We are also conscious of showing customers as much of our city as we can in the time available. We are glad you highly recommend the tour and hope to see you again. All the best Andrew

Last Monday we went on a V8 Trike ride in and around Dunedin on New Zealand's South Island. All of us, in our late 60's and early 70's had so much excitement and fun. Riding in this massive V8 machines and feeling the wind in our faces was so exhilarating. Andrew, our V8 Trike driver was very informative with his running commentary and most importantly he is a very careful and safe driver ... and very warm and friendly too. The one-hour journey took us up to the hills where we saw amazing views of Dunedin. The journey also took us all over downtown. To me this is a must-try activity when in Dunedin.

Andrew picked us up from the cruise terminal at Port Chalmers as arranged prior through his web site. As it was a little chilly he supplied us with warm jackets before we set off. Our hour and a half went so fast I needed to check my watch. He took us on a fantastic sightseeing tour from great lookouts over the bay towards the ship to a guided tour of interesting real estate along with a fantastic commentary. Returning to Dunedin City we were fortunate that markets were on in the city centre. Andrew is an excellent, driver, guide and all round great bloke and I would be happy to recommend his tour to anyone young or old.

Wow. Chevy V8, wind in our hair, a 4 seater motor trike as big as a car a friendly tour guide what a great way to see Dunedin my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Andrew is a great guy he ensures you see the best of Dunedin in a one hour ride around the city including the best viewing points. Andrew is in total control of the trike and not surprisingly plenty of people want to wave and smile at you as you drive by. A jacket and sunglasses is all you need plus a desire to enjoy the moment. Book in advance you won't be disappointed.

What a ride! The BEST two hours of our many tours. Can't say enough good things about the tour and Andrew. He truly made Dunedin the highlight of our NZ trip. Incredible tour guide, not only did he make sure we were all comfortable, (provided warm jackets, ear warmers), but also is exceptionally knowledgable about the whole area. The absolute highlight of our entire trip. His trike is amazing and so is Andrew. Highly, highly recommend If you are looking for an exciting time and an amazing tour guide. Wish he was in our part of the world - would do this at least once a month.

Yes, it was a cold day, but who cared with the wind whistling through and around us travelling around and being told about Dunedins quirky and beautiful places. We wer made comfortable and offered everything we'd need to be warm on the ride. How generous was our host too, not only with his knowledge and his time on such a day. It truly was the highlight of our trip and I will be visiting Dunedin again soon I hope.

If we could give six stars we would. Andrew is the perfect host for an hour of exhilarating sightseeing through Dunedin and the surrounding area. This personalised tour is the best way we have seen a destination when we have arrived in a port. Andrew does his best to cater for your every needs and then topped it off by dropping us off at a great little pub near our ship to round the day off. Thanks Andrew you absolutely made our day.

Arrived via ship but had booked directly with Andrew prior to our arrival, so glad we did! We took off from the center of town after bundling up in the warm, down jackets provided. and headed off to see the beautiful coastline and surrounding areas of Dunedin that you just won't see unless you book this trip. Loved that it was a private tour, no crowd to deal with, and Andrew is a great guide - and bike is a blast! Such a fun and unique way get out see this great town!

It was our second ride on the trike and it was just as thrilling as the first. Such great fun and the best way to experience the beauty of Dunedin and the Peninsula. This trip should be on the top of everyone’s list. Thanks Andrew, we will be back again.

Great trip with Andrew despite the weather conditions. A bit chilly for us Floridians but the warm jackets provided were a bonus!
Saw some lovely sites and the trike was quite an adventure.
If ever in Dunedin, book this tour! We will if we come back!
Thank you, Andrew!

Hi DonnaDanish, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. It wasn't the warmest of Dunedin days to take a trike ride. We are glad you enjoyed the tour though and the jacket we provided kept you warm and comfortable. Dunedin has some great scenery and the trike is a good way to see it. It was a pleasure having you on the trike. All the best for your travels. Regards Andrew
