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

My husband and I had a great time doing a 4-day ride on the Otago Rail Trail. Trail Journeys did a fantastic job helping us to organize and plan the trip, and we had a terrific combination of interesting riding, great accommodations, and terrific meals along the way. It was a great way to see the countryside of the Otago... More

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

The organisation of our trip by trail journeys, and particularly Jenna, was excellent. They took all the pressure off by booking accommodation and organizing bag transfers. The accommodation they arranged suited our needs very well. They were welcoming at the start of the trip. When the weather turned bad they were flexible and helpful with rescuing me!

The service from Trail Journeys was first class right through from booking our trip to saying goodbye when we were dropped off at the train. I started organising our accommodation but handed it over to Trail Journeys when I rang to inquire about bike hire. They know the area and booked us into the best accommodation. Our favourites were Blacks... More
