We were looking for a company that would drive us out to Arrowtown, give us bikes and a map, and then pick us up at a winery at the end of the day to bring us back to Queenstown, and this company is it! Just the right amount of transport and guidance. The bikes were good (no pannier or basket,... More

What a wonderful experience we had! We rode from Queenstown to the Bungy Bridge and shuttled back. It was a great way to explore Queenstown countryside. The view along the trail was breathtaking. Thanks Lisa for your service and support. Highly recommended.

Queenstown has many attractions however the bike trails are a real delight. I did a half day with this tour and had a great time. The support driver, John, was great at making sure I kept on the right trail and highlighting places to take care. The check in crew were also lovely and importantly the bikes in tip top... More

Always a successful day out on the bike when you make it to the winery at the end of your ride and know you can have a hot chocolate if wines not your choice of beverage! Pleased to hear you loved the bike too! Cheers John. More

Steve and Lisa are great partners and excellent hosts. We opted for the full day bike/winery self-guided tour and had a wonderful day. We were picked up at our Queenstown hotel and transported to Arrowtown to begin our day. The bikes and helmets are top quality and comfortable.

Thanks for your review Kari - great to hear you enjoyed our full day Bike The Wineries Tour. You're right it is tricky to pick which wineries to visit...they are all lovely and quite unique - to get to them all in a day would be quite an achievement...let alone fitting in a bungy as well!
