I made a last minute decision to do part of the Alps to Ocean track and Jill from Lakeland Explorer was brilliant. She sorted out my accommodation, bike, bag transfers and gave advice where to eat. It was raining the day I was meant to leave and as I wasn’t in a hurry she suggested delaying my trip for a day and then rearranged all my accommodation. She gave a very personalised trip at a very reasonable price. I would really recommend using Jill and Lakeland Explorers

Jill from Lakeland Explorer is amazing! Made everything so easy and checked in with us each morning, advising us on weather and giving recommendations for things to do along the way. Great bikes that we hired from them and accom and food the whole way was fab. Would highly recommend, it was an incredible few days.

Jill from Lakeland Explorer organised the transport, bike hire, accommodation, meals and back-up van for our Alps2Ocean trip. From the pre-trip communication through on-trip support and information to the post-trip photos her service was superb. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jill and Lakeland Explorer and would happily use their services again.

We did a custom tour with Jill for an early family Christmas. It was a great day out and Jill was a great host, totally flexible, and supplied a wonderful lunch. We stopped at a few places for photos on the way and spent a very entertaining afternoon at Ian’s Quirky Tours at Tasman Downs.

Thanks Jill for making our A2O bike ride so easy by relocating our car from the start (Tekapo) to the end (Oamaru). Also having our bags forwarded each day to our accommodation was great, especially on the wet day, knowing we had dry clothes to get in to. An amazing bike ride enjoyed by all - even the more challenging parts. Highly recommend you to sort the bags and vehicle. Thanks heaps - Sandy, Dave, Pete & Vicky
