      We are a retired couple in average shape and we found this activity easy to do and a lot of fun. Beyond that, the scenery was gorgeous and the bike path uncrowded. The company running the outing was tops, picking us up in Queenstown and transporting us to Arrowtown for the ride back to Queenstown. The representative was personable and gave clear instructions. The route was well marked. Highly recommended!

      Arrowtown to Queenstown e-bike ride
      Fantastic day out in stunning scenery. E-Bikes were state of the art , despite my wife and I not being experienced cyclists these bikes carried us along making the terrain manageable. Christina was ever helpful and gave a comprehensive briefing at the start of the day , she was available throughout the trip if we needed her help with anything. Both tired at the end of the day but well worth the effort.

      Arrowtown to Queenstown Self-Guide Tour
      My husband and I did the self-guided Rides to Riches Arrowtown to Queenstown ride. I had an issue with my chain breaking just outside of Arrowtown and Going Blue arrived within 20 minutes to exchange the bike and set us on our way. Hint in case you miss the instructions like I did. Make sure the bike is in low gear BEFORE going up a hill. We really appreciated the quick and friendly service. Also bring water as there are few if any places along the way as most of the trails are remote. The trail system itself is amazing. Very little portion on any road. Most on well maintained tracks through fields, forests, farms and alongside rivers, over numerous brides and by Lake Wakipitu near the end. It didn’t hurt that we had amazing weather and that very few people were on the trails that day. I would highly recommend Going Blue for this trip. The e-bikes we rode were in excellent condition, service was prompt and friendly.

      A perfect experience. The shuttle met us right on time in Queenstown with a personable and knowledgeable driver. Off to Arrowtown where we were given perfectly sized bikes based on our earlier communications. We were given maps and told how the bike paths worked and we were off. A beautiful ride! Easy to do with e-bike assistance. A great value. Highly recommended!

      A wonderful tour and friendly guide, with a high quality bike. I enjoyed it very much, with a mountain bike (not e-). Can’t recommend it enough.

      Great day out!
      We did the Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley Tour on ebikes. The hardest part is making the booking! I didn’t really see myself as booking a “tour” because i had watched their online video and I thought i was renting bikes from Arrowtown. This business is however based in Frankton and, unless you want to pick up your bikes in Queenstown, you actually have to book a tour. As part of the tour they will pick you up in Queenstown, bus you and the bikes to Arrowtown and then collect you from an agreed location along your chosen route and then transport you back to Queenstown. If you only book bikes then you don’t get any on the bussing around locations. The trip itself along the Gibbston Valley was great. Even my wife enjoyed it and she is about the least bike-aligned person I know. It is relatively flat, trails are quite wide and quite smooth. Great wineries with good choices for food along the way.

      Beautiful Bike Tour. Fantastic landscape.
      All perfect. Beautiful tour, very good bikes and well organized. The weather was good during my trip which is for such an outdoor event also very nice :-) At the end I did some wine tasting at the beautiful place of Mt Rosy. I had decided to take the e-bike version and it was worth indeed.

      Great Queenstown Active Day Trip
      Well organised trip. Bikes are in great condition, and the ebikes are of a high quality. The brief provided is thorough, with some great tips for stops along the way. The map is easy to follow and the tracks are well signposted. Some great photo opportunities along the way.

      Wine Tasting with Going Blue
      The ride itself was beyond perfect (vines tour) but the comfort and assist of the e-bikes certainly helped that! The company was professional, prompt, and thorough in every way. We’d never done e-bikes and felt totally comfortable navigating the area after their briefing. LOVED IT. Don’t hesitate to book with them.

    A half day cycling wine tour from Arrowtown through to the Gibbston Valley. You've definitely earnt your wine and cheese after 2hours of pedalling through some of the most amazing scenes. And theres no need to worry about not being able to pedal home, as the lovely team from Going Blue pick you up from whatever winery you reach and drop you back to Queenstown. The gear is also in great condition, well serviced and new bikes + gel seat pads for extra comfort!

    The trails are really well maintained but steep and gravelly in parts, the e bikes allowed our whole family of different fitness and ages to experience the region.

    When one of our party had a wee hiccup Rhys really went above and beyond to make sure this didn't effect our day. Throughout a major traffic accident Rhys' communication was 5stars and he was flexible and professional in adjusting our day.

    Thanks team for a perfect day :)

    Booked the tour via bookme and was an amazing experience.

    Picked up in Queenstown by Jay at 9:45am from our accomodation. Super cool dude, relaxed, knowledgeable and easy to yarn with. We opted to be dropped in Arrowtown and bike our way on the trail to the Gibbston Valley. Highly recommend this option as you get to see great sights and cross a number of suspension bridges, all which provide great photo opportunities. The trail was about 18km before you reach your first winery so warm clothing and gloves is a must, oh and don’t be a hero 100% chose the e-bike - work smarter not harder. Spent approximately 4 hours eating and drinking our way through the various wineries before being picked up at 4:30pm. We text Jay an hour before and planned to meet at an end point. Dropped back at our accomodation very merry and impressed with the day and service.

    Highly recommend Go Blue - what an awesome day!

    From booking through to being dropped off back to our apartment the service was exceptional. Jorge was very considerate, explained the intricacies of the ebikes we hired for the first time, in a way that everything was made simple. The bikes were brand new and I loved that they had an automatic switch so no thinking required apart from the normal gears on an ordinary bike. We ride from Arrowtown to the Gibbston Valley wineries on a scenic track. After having a lovely lunch and wine tasting , Jorge picked us up and delivered us home. We did 20kms and battery power was only 20% used. Good quality bikes handled the terrain. Loved Jorge. He was excellent and kept in touch in a lovely way. Thank you. We would recommend to everyone.

    When we found this activity online we never expected that it would be as amazing as it was! The customer service and communication from
    Jay prior to the tour was very good! Once on the tour he took the time to explain which wineries to go to for the best food and drinks. He also went through exactly how the e-bikes worked and how to get the most from the experience.
    The scenery was amazing and though we took a few wrong turns we easily redirected ourselves back on track.
    I would recommend this for anyone who doesn’t mind putting in some effort - a 20km ride - to get rewards of good wine!
    Included in the tour was pick up and drop off which was helpful after a long ride and a few wines ;)
    Thank you for a great time! Will definitely do this again if I come back to queenstown!

    We had SUCH an awesome time E-biking the wineries along the Gibbston Valley!
    It was an fab seamless service picking us up from the airport, to where we wanted to start E-biking and then collected at the end and returned to the hotel. There is quite a lot of roadworks going on, which can complicate things, but it helped knowing Jay our guide was right there and a text away if we needed him at all.
    We will definitely be back a E-biking with Going Blue again next Queenstown trip!

    Such a lovely day, on time with everything from pick up from hotel to collection, bikes were in really good condition and made the ride from Arrowtown to Gibbston easy. Beautiful scenery on the way and lots of wineries to visit nearer the end. The track is very well sign posted so would be pretty hard to get lost. Would recommend this activity as a must do on your list.

    Wow!
    This is a stellar tour and a must on any visit to Queenstown!
    Going Blue provided such an awesome experience from start to finish!
    Thank you Christina for expert guidance, bike fitting and personal recommendations for winery and food stops.
    This is a self guided tour which is perfect for those wanting a leisurely pace and time to take in the magnificent views, stop for a snack or the opportunity to do the famous bungee jumping in addition to visiting a great selection of the local wineries.
    Going Blue has top notch, newer equipment including Specialized and Trek in the mountain bike and e- bike line up. Instructions were thorough and the e-bikes intuitive.
    Highly recommend for anyone who has ever ridden a bike and has a passion to see the outdoors off the beaten path. You are on curated bike paths with next to no riding on public roads.
    Thanks again fora great day!

    The whole day was wonderful! Jay picked us up on time as arranged. Great informative commentary on the way to Arrowtown where he got us set up on our bikes and with maps and information. The E bikes were top notch in as new condition.
    Super easy to ride and plenty of battery power. Great tips on what was along the way and flexibility on time and location of pick up. Jay even collected our wine that we purchased at cellar doors on his way to pick us up at the end of the day.
    We can't speak highly enough of Jay and his Going Blue operation. It really was outstanding service on all levels. We will definitely be booking our next cycle adventure with Going Blue on our next visit and would highly recommend this company to others.
