      Great ride! Great tour company and GREAT service
      This was an exceptional trip! Dan was an exceptional tour guide. Everything ran super smoothly. The trail is really something! A lot of surprises, the track along the water is amazing. The track is also a challenge. We loved the diversity of scenery, the diversity of challenges, the ease of being set up on great bikes with a great tour guide, and we really liked the boat ride back. It is an option, but the operator is so nice. He gave us a great bit of history and it was really fun to look back at the trail, the bridge crossings and take it all in. We had a great lunch in Clyde -- the whole day was just perfect, really. I highly recommend.

      Super impressed with NZbiketours. Highly recommend. Great set up and service. Total professionals. Quality ebkkes and well serviced. You ride a distance from the start where they meet you and make sure the bikes are performing to standard before they let you loose.

      Great views and semi challenging ride!
      Having just completed the Alps to Ocean ride we craved for more cycling adventures. This package tour of a 40 odd km ride and boat ride back to the start was excellent. Everything was well organised and ran smoothly. The stop at the cafe/winery early in the ride was great. The ride itself was spectacular and a tad scary in sections too so you need to concentrate. The pathways over the water were cool to ride. There are a few tough sections to negotiate if you opt for no E bike. Highly recommend this tour.

      Dunstan Trail / River ride
      Wow - what an amazing day we had on the Dunstan Trail, and the river ride back. From start to finish, communication and detailed information was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for NZ bike trails. Even came to check that we were ok some 20 minutes into the bike ride. Highly recommend booking with this company. Out of 7 weeks of travelling in both Oz and NZ - this was definitely a high light of our travels.

      Great day out!
      Nzbiketrails were great! The electric bikes we had were ideal for the Lake Dunstable trail. Dan was great to deal with and explained the day well. We also caught the boat back from Clyde up the lake. It was a very informative ride back to Cromwell We would highly recommend this company and this day trip

      Lake Dunstan trail, best ride ever and topped off with the return up the river by boat. NZbiketrails have it all sorted, good bikes and plenty of helpful advice.

      Great day trip
      We had a really great day! The bike ride around lake Dunstan was beautiful! Amazing views & great bike track. Having an e-bike made the trip really enjoyable as it was fairly effortless riding up the steep hills. We also loved our boat ride back to Cromwell as our guide was very friendly & stopped at a couple of places along the trip for photos, as well as explaining about how the bike track was constructed and other details. We would thoroughly recommend doing this trip.

      Nzbiketrails provided a fantastic service from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed and given clear instructions and great advice. The ebikes were extremely comfortable. They were a great company to deal with. While an added extra, we can also highly recommend the boat ride back.

      A perfect day on Dunstan Trail
      A perfect organized day on the fabulous Dunstan Trail; David provided shuttle from our accomodatiom, perfect bikes and many information about the region, history... The trip back by boat was awesome and informative - you don't ship often over an old town. We really liked it.

      Fabulous day trip cycling & boating! 🙌🏼
      Great experience, can highly recommend this trip with nzbiketrails! David picked us up with his shuttle in the morning, we had a great chat and received a lot of knowledge about Wānaka and the surrounding area on the way to Cromwell. He gave us an excellent introduction for our e bikes and the Lake Dunstan Trail, he made sure we got the right size of bikes and helmets. All bikes are high quality and brand new! Loved the boat ride with Lake Dunstan Explorer, such a great way to end a day out cycling.

    We used Nzbiketrails to hire an ebike each to travel the Lake Dunstan Trail which was only completed 3 years ago. The trail is well signposted and well maintained, is also challenging in places with the trail being very narrow in parts along with very steep drops back down to the river. So anyone with a fear of heights may find it additionally challenging. Dan our NZbiketrails representative was very informative and had a good sense of humour to boot. Fully recommend doing the trail as the scenery is dramatic in parts with great viewpoints. For non cyclists an ebike is a must.

    My wife and I chose the Lake Dunstan Track with NZbiketrails and are very happy that we did. We booked David through the Wanaka info centre and didn’t really know anything about the ride. Well, what a fantastic day David provided!! From pick-up to interesting commentary to a very good safety briefing (the only one we received on multiple rides in NZ). The e-bikes were great, and David checked-in on us regularly. Loved the tips/local knowledge too. He even arranged for a boat return on Lake Dunstan where we viewed the trail we’d just ridden on. Highly recommend!! (PS little extras like the pump and repair kit were also not provided by any other tours). (PPS I left a bag behind at end of trip and David was super helpful and considerate in arranging for Mr to get it back.)

    The best service you can expect. I was actually not looking forward to this bike ride as I m quite unfit and hasn’t ridden a bike since I was at school, I was also 3month pregnant, but it was something my partner really wanted to on our holiday down at the central. I rang David before I booked the ride. He was extremely knowledgeable and addressed all my concerns and left a really good impression on me as he was really friendly and easy going and I could tell he would go out his way to look after his riders. I booked our ride straight after talking to him. And on the day of the ride was really hot and extremely windy, I really enjoyed the first part of the ride as was quite easy and I actually got quite confident with the bike, however the 2nd part of the ride got became very challenging to me very quickly since the big climb starts. I was scared of the narrow part of trail on the cliff side I chose pushing the bike for a lot of those places and also really ran out of the energy, we stopped a lot, my partner was very good rode behind me all the way making sure I was okay. We ended up stopping a lot for the climbs just took our time, once we got over all the bike climbs to the final 10km of the trail which is relatively easy again I managed to stay on the bike and got to Clyde bridge at 3pm, we stopped to call David and he actually already messaged us to check on us and he picked up the phone straight away when called him and came met us. The scenery through out the track was just stunning, it’s really my favourite part of the country, and despite all, I felt really good was able to challenge myself to something I thought I would never do and it will definitely be a memorable experience that me and my partner will be fondly talking bout for years to come. And we couldn’t recommend David more to anyone thinking of doing the trail.
    I must not forget to say David also took lots of great photos for us which is much appreciated too

    What a great day that was! Lots of firsts for yourself but after the ride briefing, safety briefing and initial getting use to the bikes I was confident you would be good on the trail. I love the way that you just got off and walked when you didn't feel comfortable. That is exactly what I do on some of my rides (promised Mum I would always get off if I wasn't technically capable or confident to ride something - she just didn't realise the type of ultra endurance riding I would do!!). After such a big achievement with the baby on the way could I suggest 'Dunstan' as an original name!!!! I've never named a guests baby before so perhaps this could be another first!!!! Next time you are in Wanaka lets go riding again. We have baby seats for 9 months+ so we still have lots of riding to do together. I hope all goes well for you both - Well done - Great riding.

    David was amazing. He was very helpful and accommodating in organising our group of 14 quite last minute, he even offered to pick up water bottles for all of our riders before hand. The bikes were dropped off to us and then they were met at the other end for the bikes to be collected. Everything was organised and seamless. All the riders really enjoyed their time on the trail

    A must see and do Central Otago bike trail! Absolutely epic ride from the start in Cromwell around the lake, over many scenic bridges and topography changes. Stops at wineries, the floating burger bar or a well deserved lunch in historic Clyde. Definitely book and go! Dan our guide gave great instruction, fitted our bikes, helmets and gear bags and then waited a bit up the trail to make sure we were good to go. At the end of the day, he pointed us to a great lunch spot and gave history of the area and dam on the comfortable ride back to Cromwell. Highly recommend! The bikes are top of the line and easy to handle.

    We absolutely loved our day on the Dunstan Trail. It’s an amazing track with incredible scenery and yet so accessible. The bikes that NZ Bike Trails use are absolutely ideal for this track. Dave has clearly taken his time and made a considered decision in going with Sinch Bikes. The assist from the electric motor made all the climbs a piece of cake.

    You start the day at a beautiful lookout and go thru helmet fitting, bike assignment and then a brief safety walkthrough before a quick spin on the bike to make sure it’s set up properly.

    As soon as that is done you drop immediately down on to the trail and the fun begins.

    Dave points out all the relevant stops you might like to make. All up the track took me and a fellow Dad about 2hrs 45mins to ride, but there is plenty of extra time for those that want to take longer. Dave allows a bit of time after arriving in Clyde for a quick visit to a local pub, if that’s your thing.

    Then it’s a quick and comfortable transfer back to your car in Cromwell.

    Such a great bike trip. David is a fantastic business owner and trip operator. He gave lots of clear details, adding humour and stories to keep it interesting. Lots of info about the history of the trails too. He also made sure all riders were comfortable and prepared for the ride ahead. Love all the environmental initiatives and future proofing of the trails. All the best for the future!

    A spectacular ride. The trail in itself was an magnificent engineering feat. I was collected by David from my address and shuttled from Wanaka to Clyde, then after the ride, from Cromwell back to my address in Wanaka. He pointed out places of interest and the history of the area and also ensured I had the perfect (sized) bike, a new model
    ebike. A good suggestion which enabled me to enjoy the views without having to worry about the 2 up hill climbs. Plenty of time for taking photos of which I took many. He also obviously puts a lot of thought into timing, weather, wind direction and especially safety. The trail was quiet and as long as you bring along appropriate clothing a very pleasant ride on a winter's day. All in all a great experience and ride. I also highly recommend David and his company for the bike hire and shuttle service. A nice touch too was the delicious home made soup made by his wife to take on the ride - thank you for a memorable day!
