Highly recommended service by a dedicated team and crew. This is a very efficient service that never missed a beat. We stayed in either Hokitika or Greymouth and were shuttled to and from starting points on the Wilderness Trail ensuring we had time for a beer and look around while we waited. Timing was always perfect and service with a smile. It is worth noting that we do not recommend anyone stay at Cowboys Paradise, so this made the shuttle service back to Hokitika for the night and then return in the morning very necessary and it was again, perfect. Well done and Thanks.

Great Company, not only providing the service we needed for bike hire, bag drop at our accommodations and personal shuttle service, but they went over and above to assist us. A very friendly and informative team. Thank you, your help was much appreciated.

Thanks so much Chris, for your care and attention in making sure we had a memorable cycle trip. We appreciated that you went out of your way to make sure we were safe after all the rain and washouts. A great service with our bags and shuttle rides, lots of advice and knowledge given to us. Would highly recommend Wilderness Trail Shuttles to all.

We had two shuttle rides - beginning (Hokitika to Ross with Bob) and end (Greymouth to Kumara with Chris). Both on time (or early at our request) and great experiences. Both drivers shared willingly of their knowledge of the region, and its history.

But special big ups to Chris who is a driving force behind all things Wilderness Trail, including writing the guidebook. This is a guy who wears his big West Coast heart on his sleeve, and should be treasured for that.

Thanks guys.

We were picked up in Ross after completing the WCWT and taken back to Greymouth. Chris was a mine of information about the track as was involved in its development. Very good driver. Also found some excellent resources on his website about the trail. Particularly the Larrikans loop walk by Kumara.

Chris was terrific! He knows the trail in detail, and he was very patient and helpful in setting me up with a rented ebike. The shuttle service was reliable and I enjoyed the ride. I suggest contacting them through email rather than phone, as I had trouble connecting with them by phone - not their fault I’m sure. They were quick to respond to my emails.

Many thanks for your review. Yes we very much prefer emails so we can ensure contact with our riders is promptly responded to and we get all the details correct. Operating a busy shuttle business and trying to communicate by phone can be difficult. We have learnt that a paper trail is essential in our business to ensure accuracy and a great outcome for all.

We used the shuttle service to transport our ebikes for "the big day out ride". Chris was a pleasure to deal with all communications via email nothing was too much trouble. Our bikes were well secured and the whole operation was very professional. Will be making strong recommendations to our cycling group.
Thanks for the service.

What a great experience we had with this company. They made it easy to get set up with bikes and a drop off out on the trail, so we could spend the day enjoying the varied landscape, awesome trails, and beautiful day in NZ. Don't hesitate to book with this company and have an unforgettable day outside taking pleasure in what this adventure can offer. Awesome day!!!

We did 3 days of the trail and were very happy with the transfers, bikes and advice received from wilderness trail shuttles.

The bikes were great with storage bags and drink bottles holders and comfy seats. They bikes were good sizes for all our family.

We had phone and email communications prior to the ride with tips about which direction to do the trail. We made some changes due to the weather and Chris was flexible and helpful with these.

The transfers all went according to plan and Bob had lots of stories about the area and where we were about to go.
