      FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!
      I did a guided tour to the lakes, which was amazing!! The scenery was stunning, the bikes are so easy to ride and makes the journey FUN. Shay is so helpful and knows the area so well so you learn a lot too. He even takes all the photos and emails them to you that evening. It's such a great set up and I can't recommend this company highly enough. Thanks guys for a great afternoon out.

      Cycling along the Kawarau River to the Gibbston Wineries
      We had a wonderful day cycling through beautiful scenery with Ksena. She gave us plenty of advice about how to get the best out of our bikes & paced the day very well with plenty of breaks. We fed alpacas & watched bungy jumping which we hadn't expected to do. We also managed to cycle over the suspension bridges with her encouragement which gave us a real sense of satisfaction. The wineries at the end were a great way to relax. -A perfect ending to an amazing day.

      We took a guided ride to the vines - which was awesome- we had a fantastic trip - Kesna the very knowledgeable guide helped us not only understand more about winemaking and the history of the area but also helped us learn how to use the e-bikes really well. Highly recommended!

      Reach for the Sky
      An absolute must do when visiting Queenstown. Even if you’re out of shape you can make the summit and reach for the sky with the top class Moustache e-bikes that Ride to the Sky provide you with. A very fun and enjoyable experience.

      A highlight of our NZ trip
      What a wonderful way to spend a morning! The views and the fun. It had been a while since I went for a bike ride, but Jordon our guide was patient, with him and the ebike I soon got confident and had a brilliant time. My hubby and children (2 adults and 1 teen) had a blast and challenged themselves to a harder track at the end. My teen son said it was so far the highlight of our NZ trip!

      A great experience with beyond kind owners
      This is not only a fun, gorgeous ride, but it is done with the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. The owners/guides go out of their way to offer the best possible experience. They even pulled over after the ride and approached a city bus to get us on it when they heard of our next destination! Wow! I was speechless.

      The ride was fun, the team was engaging and friendly and the views where priceless. This was a great activity and a very fun way to see parts of the town that are off the beaten path. Thank you for an amazing time and memorable moments.

      Fantastic experience. Shay was such a great (and funny!) guide. We had a really memorable day riding to the Lake. The scenery was gorgeous and the ebikes made it a really easy ride.

      Great ride and view
      Great view and great experience! Got all the kit I needed! Great for different abilities I would consider myself to be a ok rider, I found the e-bike meant I could enjoy the view and ride at a comfortable pace only a gentle peddle needed. When at the top stopped for a drink and snack to enjoy the view of Queenstown, was a great way to spend my first day in Queenstown.

      Amazing half-day eMTB tour!
      Very nice eMTB-Tour around Queenstown. Shay and Jordan were fantastic guides who also gave some insights about the area. They were also looking after the less experienced riders and gave us more experienced riders some freedom to go ahead. High quality bikes. Family-owned small company and therefore done with a lot of passion. We really enjoyed it!

      Amazing experience, will definitely do it again.
      Hands down the best part of my Queenstown holiday, and that's saying a lot cos the entire city is packed with fun activities. Shay and Jake were awesome tour guides, very thoughtful, patient, witty, fun and Shay takes awesome photos/videos. The e-bikes are great and seem to be able to handle all terrain, plus you get to enjoy the ride without being too fagged out. If you are into biking, an e-bike tour is a must-do and do it with Ride to the Sky!!

    Trip was amazing. Took my wife in her birthday who wasn’t a very competent rider and we now both any to buy e-bikes. Personal guide (I think his name was Shay?) through a private farm ended with an epic view overlooking pretty much the entire QT-Lakes (minus GY). The guide stopped and gave us some info along the way and also a cool story about the Maori legend of lake wakatipu at the top of view point. We have lived here for 9 years and never had done this, but will definitely book to do again for summer. We were lucky with the weather as well. Really cool thing to do with friends or even family. Epic tour, personable and knowledgeable guide who went through heaps of safety drills before we left in the car park for my wife. WELL DONE, you nailed this trip! Cheers

    We set off on time with top of the line equipment and a short training session from Arrowtown to ride the wine trail. It was awesome. We were not going to set a speed record but rather mellow out and enjoy the beauty. Meanwhile the teenager got a guided tour, grade 4 mountain bike ride. All the family was catered for. We all loved it! E bikes made it recreational, safe and fun.

    Brilliant e-biking trip around the hills and views over Queenstown. Shay is an excellent guide - informative, encouraging, helpful, funny and social. He was attentive and made adjustments to the itinerary based on the group's speed, fitness and experience.
    I really enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend it. I'll try another of their tours on my next visit!

    My friend and I took the "Ride to the Lake" lake view tour, a 30km route that showcased some absolutely spectacular scenery and showed off Queenstown and its surrounds in their full glory. Ksena was a great guide and her experience, friendly nature and good advice were absolutely worth the price of the ticket. She also knew how to make it fun and made some good tea! I would 100% recommend this ride to anyone who wants to get out of the tourist traps in Queenstown and see the real landscape.

    Great rides on private land with fantastic views and then an up close view of the ShotOver jet boat. The E bikes were high quality MTB. Our ride leader Shay also provided some historical facts and photos of the area. The ride starts from the depot so no long bus trip and there is cafe (for coffee) and other shops in the same location. Fun half day event. Shay then emailed a link to photos and videos of the ride top effort. These guys are new but they set a high standard and really care about your safety.

    Our trip was Ride to the Vines! We had just got engaged the previous day, and this was such a treat to celebrate the engagement. Ksena was a wonderful guide and went out of her way to make sure we had the best time, and even showed us some hidden paths to explore on the bikes. The bikes were top-notch, the wine was delicious and the path was well maintained and non-congested. Both Ksena and Shae treated us with the best hospitality and made us feel so welcome and safe throughout the whole journey. Plus, we have a bunch of photos and videos to keep for rem,iniscing!

    We will definitely book again!

    A fabulous day out riding out to the vineyards from Arrowtown. Anyone who lives scenic views, understanding information about the local area, enjoy wine. The hosts Shay and Ksena were absolutely fabulous, obliging and helpful with everything. We went at the beginning of winter they provided gloves, balaclava neck warmers, snacks and water. They provided advice on how to use the ebike and how to navigate the country. Being an absolute novice on a mountain bike that was greatly appreciated. Fabulous day out and worth the investment.

    To be honest, the experience far exceeded my initial expectations very and this was also not in my original plan.

    Due to the cancellation of Big Stargazing and Glacier Explorer trips in Mt. Cook because of bad weather, I found myself an extra day in Queenstown. Originally, I’d intended to simply rent an e-bike and ride around the lake and gardens. However, after comparing options and reading reviews, I was fortunate to opt for this pricer option. I believe that having local guides and venturing into the mountain could be truly different with the general.

    That belief was fully validated. The scenic beauty and the challenging ups and downs of the mountains terrain made the higher cost well worth it. Our guides not only took multiple photographs of us at various scenic spots but also enriched the experience by sharing the history of those locations.

    As a newbie of mountain e-bikes, I was cautious and maintained a slower pace. The guides were credibly helpful, providing detailed tips along the way and offering words of encouragement. One thing worth noting is that my clothes ended up so h several mud splatters, but that was easily cleaned up post-journey for me(depends on the material).

    Finally, thanks to Ksena and the other guides. I definitely do try “Ride to the Lake” or other activities next time!

    Lastly, a big thank you to Ksena and the rest of the guiding team. I’m definitely looking forward to trying the “Ride to the Lake” and other activities next time!

    The bikes give you great control and they have great power giving a smooth ride. The guides are super friendly, fun and great at step by step guiding you on using the clever bike in the most effective way depending on the terrain you are on at that time. The tour is so diverse and covers a large part of Queenstown's surrounding area showcasing the most spectacular views. We left the tour really wanting to purchase one of those bikes and really wanting to do their other tours. We left with confidence in our much greater biking skills. A great way to detach from daily life and enjoy being in the moment as you wont want to miss a second of the glory Queenstown's surrounding area has to offer. Thank you team 'Ride to the Sky', absolutely loved it! <3
