From the first enquiry email to the final drop off point after a fantastic bike ride, trail journeys provides exceptional service. I particularly appreciated the detailed itineraries provided, text messages sent during the bike ride just to check in and facilities in Middlemarch after a long ride. The bikes were faultless and performed beautifully. I would have no hesitation using... More

The overall ride was not arduous, in fact it could be condensed if your relatively fit. We did an easy 1/2 day most days and actually ran out of things to see. Accommodation was a great mix with good food at all locations and I would recommend booking a side tour to the Blue Lake at St Bathans. Its is... More

Thanks from Tony, Dolly, Peter & Leanne. Brisbane Australia. We completed the Otago Central Rail Trail between 4 March and 11 March 2017 and without doubt it was the most relaxing week we have had in a long time. Why relaxing, all we had to do was turn up. Trail Journeys did all the rest, bike hire, nightly accommodation bookings... More

I've just cycled the Central Otago Rail Trail for the fourth time, with yet another group of friends. As on the previous occasions, the organisation was reliable and the staff friendly. The bikes were clean and well maintained. Four of our seven hired electric bikes, which greatly increased the enjoyment for them, as they were not looking forward to pedaling... More

An absolutely topclass selection for my husband and myself. We were cycling virgins until our CORT experience and are already discussing where to next on two wheels! A fabulous collisions of spectacular scenery, sublime weather, heavenly food and accommodation have converted us to the splendours of cycling through our small country's postcard scenery. Excellent planning and service, Trail Journeys!

We had such a great time riding the trail. Trail Journeys did a superb job of organising everything. Bikes, accomodation, luggage etc all went very smoothly. We were two couples and had so much fun enjoying the scenery, history, and food. All the locals were incredibly friendly and hospitable. I thoroughly recommend the trail and Trail Journeys to everyone

A peaceful and easy ride through delightful countryside; scenery, sheep, cows, trackside flowers and herbs. Great bike with super smooth gears even for an non cycling 69 year old. Mostly downhill. Visited the interesting old gold mining village of Ophir and enjoyed the lunchtime meal and cider. Thoroughly great day.

In January we had a most marvelous adventure completing the Otago Rail Trail over 4 days. Trail Journeys were excellent in all aspects and made this experience a most enjoyable one.Would recommend January going as we did from Clyde to Middlemarch
