We did the 5 day Easy Explorer ride around Hawkes Bay and had a great time. Jenny could not have been more helpful; she arranged our accommodation, picked us up from Napier airport and transported us to our hotel on the night before the ride. We had a few days of heavy rain and she even contacted us to offer... More

Thanks Jenny for a fantastic long weekend cycling Hawkes Bay. The tour was so well organised, your restaurant recommendations and bookings great for our large group of 18 parents and kids. No changes to the itinerary were too much trouble. We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends in Auckland!

We were in Hawkes Bay for Easter weekend and decided to rent some bikes, we landed at Takaro in Ahuriri. Fantastic service from the two people working, really helpful and the whole thing was really simple. We also got good advice about where to ride - we did about 20ks in a couple of hours. Back to drop off and... More

We were picked up at the airport!!! How good is that? Dropped off at our hotel and our biked dropped off the next morning at our doorstep. Just the beginning of the details that Jenny of Takaro Trails had looked after. A group of 4 Canadians all new to what we were to find was one of the gems in... More

Absolutely top class travel establishment. The staff including 4 legged family members were brilliant. 10 stars as they couldn't be more supportive and helpful to make the cycling trip great

Thanks for the review and photos. We loved having you both here and thought you were such 'troopers' with the way you coped with the very un-Hawkes Bay weather!! Hope you can come back some other time and see our beautiful region under sunny skies. Cheers Jenny More

As a group we have just completed a five day cycle trail of the Hawkes Bay organised by Jenny of Takaro Trails. The bikes were great, the planned routes very doable and the accommodation organised by Jenny was excellent. We were able to visit and sample wineries through out the journey and found excellent food stops. Jenny and her staff... More

We were able to stop at places along the way that interested us and had a fantastic lunch at one of the wineries . Would highly recommend this . We were... More

Would highly recommend Takaro Trails if you are thinking of doing a vineyard tour in this area; the bikes are of a good quality, the pick up is prompt, the driver was lovely to walk to en route to the starting point, and there a few good trails to choose from. We chose the self-guided Havelock & Cape tour and... More

Being new to cycle trails, we tried a couple of the shorter routes. The bikes were of a high standard and well equipped, including panniers, water, helmets, and a tool kit. Jenny was very helpful, offering tips and guidance. She ensured we had a great biking experience with Takaro Trails. We would definitely use this service again and try the... More
