“Molesworth Station tours”
Reviewed 8 February 2011

If one really wants to learn about a region, one must speak with the locals. Numerous opportunities to do just that were provided on our recent four-day bike trip with Geoff Swift’s Molesworth Tour Company.
Geoff’s has amassed a treasure-trove of knowledge about the Molesworth Station and its people from living thirty years in Marlborough region. Throughout our tour, he unselfishly shared this knowledge. Invited to sit down to scrumptious meals, we were introduced to a number of charming, knowledgeable station owners, vineyard proprietors, and other unique individuals. From the discussions at the tables, we learned about the satisfactions of raising families and difficulties of running businesses in that remote high-country. And for those characters in Geoff’s Molesworth history book with whom we could not meet, he related all the local lore through his gifted story-telling. All this, provided with outstanding trip organization and service, made our excursion a truly special and unique event.
We recommend Molesworth Tour Company without hesitation for those who want the extraordinary in a tour to this unique part of the South Island, New Zealand.

“Wonderful NZ cycle experience”
Reviewed 22 January 2011

We cycled through Molesworth station with The Molesworth Tour Company in Dec 2010 and the whole three nights and four days was a wonderful and uniquely NZ outdoor experience.
Geoff Swift was a great tour leader and the trip was well organised. We were grateful for the opportunity to access this large remote area and the insight provided by this tour company together with some of the local farmers. The care provided was exceptional and we thoroughly recommend participation in this cycling activity.
